Do you have a lot of Apple Cash lying around that you'd like to turn into real cash?
Today we're going to show you exactly how to get money from Apple Pay into your bank account.
Luckily, it's a pretty smooth process, as long as you know where to look. Let's go get your money.
Transferring your Apple Pay cash into your bank is a very simple process, but it could be confusing, because in most other situations, the instructions are in the opposite steps!
In order to link your bank to Apple Pay, the best way is actually to start a transfer with your Apple Pay cash.

Now, you'll be prompted to add your bank account by entering your bank's routing number, and your individual bank account number.

This transfer will be free, and will take 1-3 business days to process.

Nearly every online money app has the option - so now you know that exists, make sure to look for it!
