How do I deposit cash to my account using the Green Dot app?

This feature is only available with the Cash Back Visa® Debit Card, Visa® Debit Card and Pay As You Go Visa® Debit Card.

  • Log in to the Green Dot app, go to the Deposit menu and select Deposit Cash.
  • Select Deposit Cash using the app.
  • Select a retailer and create a secure deposit code on your phone. Note: the deposit code will expire in one hour.
  • Bring your cash and show the deposit code to a cashier at any store from the retailer you selected. The cashier will scan the deposit code, complete the transaction and provide a receipt.
  • The cash will be deposited to your account within 10 minutes.

TIP for mobile users: Wait until you are at the retail location to generate your deposit code on your phone. Remember, your deposit code will expire one hour after you generate it, but you can always create a new one on your mobile phone if it expires. It’s best to take a screenshot of your deposit code when you generate it, in case you accidentally close the deposit code screen Deposit limits apply.
