How to transfer money using iPhone?

rcook12

One of my kids is in college, and isn’t afraid to make a call to dad occasionally asking for a little extra money to make it through the month. She works part time and is a good student, so I don’t mind helping out. I’d like to make it as easy as possible when I do though; what is the easiest way to transfer money using an iPhone? It actually doesn’t even need to be iPhone specific - around my house we have Android, Windows Phone and iPhones, so I could really use any of them. Thanks.

If you want, you can use PayPal, where most of us probably already have an account whether we like it or not. I suggest also checking out Square Cash, though. It’s a very easy process that allows you to get set up with nothing more than an email address and your ATM card. They have apps for both Android and iOS. There is also Venmo, but I haven’t use that service so I can’t comment one way or another about it.
