Original story (published on August 28, 2023) follows:

Cash App users are taking to social media to vent their frustration about pending transactions that refuse to process as the service is down or not working.

Cash App, developed by Square Inc., has rapidly risen to prominence as one of the most popular peer-to-peer payment platforms.

With its user-friendly interface and features that allow users to effortlessly send, receive, and request money, it has gained a massive following.

Cash App down, not loading or working

However, even the most advanced technology is not immune to glitches and downtime (1,2,3).

Cash App down not working

One common issue that has come to light is the phenomenon of purchases that neither get declined nor successfully processed.

This is happening in online payments and ATM withdrawals alike. Users are reporting that their payments are stuck in limbo, neither canceled nor completed.

This situation has left several users in a state of financial limbo. They are waiting for payments to go through or struggling to make essential transactions.

@CashApp is your system down ?

My purchases aren’t being declined, but they aren’t going through. I made a purchase about 20 minutes ago with my card online, and then I tried to make another purchase (card linked through PayPal, and the card itself) and i was told to check my account or try a different method each time.

Users have reported trying various troubleshooting techniques, but most have found these efforts to be in vain.

For now, all eyes are on Cash App’s developers, awaiting a response and, more importantly, a solution.

The experiences of countless users hang in the balance as they hope for a swift resolution to the ongoing technical woes.
