Gift Cards – Merchant Services:

People spend billions on shopping each year. It’s safe to say that most people lead a materialistic lifestyle these days, but sometimes that means purchasing items we can’t afford.

Visa Gift card to Cash App:

That’s a question we’ve been asked a number of times. And, the answer to that is no. The first thing to understand is that you cannot add Visa gift cards (or any other card type) to your Cash App account.
