Does Wendy’s Take Cash App [Answered]

If you eat at Wendy’s and consider using the Cash App to make the payment, you are on the right post. Paying with online wallet options like Cash App, Venmo, Apple Pay, etc. is a growing trend, due to the ease and convenience it offers. However, not all payment modes are accepted at your restaurant of choice and this can be a pain.

Wendy’s is a popular fast-food chain founded in 1969 that offers meals in-store, drive-thru as well as online.

To answer our main question-

Does Wendy’s Take Cash App?

Wendy’s accepts payments via Cash App Card, which works like a normal Visa Card. You can also use other forms of payments like credit cards, debit cards, Wendy’s gift cards, and other prepaid cards to pay at Wendy’s. However, Wendy’s does not accept Apple Pay or Google Pay (unless order is placed via their mobile app) at the moment.

So you need to have the Cash App Card, also called Cash Card, to be able to make the payment at Wendy’s.

In fact, if you are lucky, you can also find some Cash App boosts to get a discount when you pay with Cash App Card at Wendy’s the next time. The boost usually offers a 10% discount, but it may or may not be running at the moment. The best thing is to check in your Cash App and activate it if available, before making the payment.

Payment Modes not accepted yet at Wendy’s

Apple Pay-

Apple Pay is not yet accepted at most Wendy’s outlets. It is expected to be coming soon at Wendy’s outlets probably in the near future, considering the ever-increasing demand from customers.

However, Apple Pay is accepted as a payment mode in the Wendys Mobile IoS App. Another way of ordering from Wendy’s using Apple Pay is when you are looking to get food delivery at home is by using the Uber Eats, Grub Hub App.

Once Apple Pay is accepted in-store at Wendy’s, it will be easy for you to make the payment via Cash App as you can add the Cash Card to Apple Pay to complete the payment from the phone itself.

Another wallet option – Google Pay for Android users is also not accepted by Wendy’s at the moment.

The app has mixed reviews with respect to the user experience, with some of them being really bad. However, you can give it a try when you have some leisure time, as it may get updated. You can get reward points and even treat yourself to a free meal using the app. It is helpful for users to order ahead.

Wrap Up

Wendy’s has yet to do a fair bit of catch-up with respect to accepting all the convenient payment options. But it is safe to say that you can use Cash App Card to make the payment without issues. We hope the Apple Pay and Google Pay options are rolled out soon to make it much more convenient by adding the Cash App card to either of these wallets and making it a touchless experience.
