Square Cash Now Includes Requesting Funds

Square Cash, along with Venmo and other proprietary banking apps, have worked hard to make sending and receiving funds from friends and others fairly simple. Now, if Square Cash is your app of choice, you can cc [email protected] in an email to request money from one or more friends. The recipients will be prompted with a “Send Cash” page, and if you’ve requested money from multiple people there is a new page on Square that will let you see who has paid you. Though services like Venmo have been dominating the casual mobile payments space between friends, Square’s partnerships mean that they will be more deeply engrained within people’s lives, and thereafter, at least ideally, their wallets.
