1. Check For Issues With Cash App Servers
As I usually say, no system is 100% perfect, and while Cash App might seem reputable, it does, however, have some server issues that bring down some features within the app.
Thankfully Cash App is one of the few financial giants that allows you to check the status servers related to services that contribute to the main purpose of the app.
It does so by featuring a status page that displays the current status of all the available services within the app.
You can see from the image below that all the servers are up and running. The one related to the Paper Money Deposit option is the Cash Card and you can see from the image below that it is equally working as of this writing.
You'll equally see a list of recent issues or incidents reported within the app and as of today, there's no incident reported which means we can fully use the app without issues.
If in case the Cash Card server was down, we could assume that that's one of the reasons why the Cash App paper money deposit isn't showing up. Since everything is ok from here, let's proceed to the next troubleshooting tip.
2. Update Your Cash App
Cash App is a finance app that relies on updates to assure the quality of its services.
If you're using an older version of Cash App, there are great chances that the paper money deposit wouldn't show up for you. In this case, I'll recommend updating your Cash App to the latest version either from the Google Play Store (Android users) or Apple App Store (iOS users).
Updates usually come with bug fixes and improvements and updating Cash App to the latest version will help fix some bugs you face with the app.

Unverified accounts on Cash App are limited to using only a few features and if your account isn't verified, you might not be able to use the Paper Money option on Cash App.
I'll recommend verifying your identity on Cash App (if you haven't done so yet) so the Paper Money option will show up for your account.
