How good is Cash App?

Cash App is a popular way for people to handle payments online. But it prohibits gun-related transactions and makes users vulnerable to various scams.

Guns, ammo, parts, and accessories prohibited

Like all the payment platforms, Cash App strictly prohibits gun-related transactions. It says: "You may not ... use the Services for the sale of firearms, firearm parts, ammunition, weapons or other devices designed to cause physical harm". If Cash App catches you violating its policy, it will permanently ban you and may even seize your money.

Buyers vulnerable

Cash App does not offer purchase protection. Cash App warns: "Only send payments to people who you trust. Cash App to Cash App payments are instant and usually can't be canceled. ... Never pay someone who you don't trust for something promised to you in the future".

Sellers vulnerable

Cash App does not explain what happens if a buyer issues a chargeback on card payment. It is very likely that Cash App makes the seller financially responsible, because that is what all other payment platforms do. That means if a buyer issues a chargeback, Cash App will immediately withdraw the funds from the sellers account. In other words, the seller's funds don't really belong to the seller until the chargeback window expires 180 days after payment.

Which is better?

In short, using Cash App for guns, ammo, or accessories is a big mistake. You have no protection from scams or chargebacks, and you even put your money at risk of being seized by Cash App. GunTab is totally safe, and even helps you complete your transactions. GunTab is clearly the better choice.
