How to transfer Apple Cash to bank account or debit card

Whether you earn Daily Cash from using your Apple Card or receive funds from others via Apple Pay, your Apple Cash balance can build up over time. While you can use your Apple Cash to make certain purchases, you may prefer to move that money elsewhere. We’ll show you how to transfer Apple Cash to a bank account or debit card from your iPhone or iPad so you can spend it where you please or save it for a rainy day.

Things to know about transferring Apple Cash

You can transfer Apple Cash in one of two ways.

  • First, you can send the money to a bank account, which takes one to three business days.
  • Second, you can send the money to an eligible Visa or Mastercard debit card using Instant Transfer, which takes about 30 minutes.

When you transfer Apple Cash to your bank account or a debit card, there are a few details and limitations you should keep in mind.

  • Fees: There is no fee for transferring Apple Cash to a bank account using the one-to-three business day option. However, if you choose the Instant Transfer (30-minute) debit card option, you’ll pay a 1.5 percent fee with a minimum of $0.25 and a maximum of $15. This fee is automatically deducted from the amount of the transfer.
  • Limits: You can send a minimum of $1 or your entire balance if less than $1, up to $10,000 per transfer, and up to $20,000 within seven days. If you belong to an Apple Cash Family, the minimum amount is the same, but you can only send up to $2,000 per transfer and up to $4,000 in seven days.

    You can only transfer funds to a bank account in the U.S. or a debit card issued in the U.S. If you’re unsure if your debit card is eligible, check with your card issuer.
  • Minors: Children younger than 13 years can transfer Apple Cash to a bank account; however, teenagers 13 years or older can transfer funds to a bank account or debit card.

Note: For additional information, check out the Apple Cash Terms and Conditions web page.

When you’re ready to transfer funds from Apple Cash to your bank account, it takes only a few taps.
