The feature is very simple in use. You need to add your debit card details which will be stored by Square. After that, swipe into chat, type $ sign followed by amount and hit the green button. All the transactions are handled by Square.

While signing up fo SnapCash, users will already be creating a Square Cash account. And of course, users are agreeing to the terms and services of Square. When users will signup for Snapcash, it will also show Square’s logo for the first time.

Snapchat confirmed that it knows “Security is essential when you are dealing with money”. But company has trust on the experience of Square in the payment area.
