Direct Register Shares from Cash App

Updated: Oct 19, 2023

Once your shares are settled in Cash App, you can email asking for a DRS transfer form.

  • Email and request to direct register your shares.

  • Cash App will email you a DRS transfer form along with a secure link to upload the filled out form to (the form must be signed with a pen).

  • Fill out the form with the following information:

    • Your Cash App account number. This can be found on your monthly statements or any trade confirmation.

    • Your full name (the same as what's on your Cash App account).

    • Your phone number.

    • Your email address.

    • The company name: GameStop. Its ticker: GME. And how many shares you want to transfer.

    • The Transfer Agent's name, DTC number, and address.

    • In GameStop's case that's: Computershare US. DTC# 7807. Computershare Trust Company, N.A., P.O. Box 505005, Louisville, KY 40233-5005.

    • The account holder name at Computershare (The same as your name on your Cash App account. Unless you are transferring to some one else, or have an existing Computershare account).

    • The SSN/Tax ID of the Computershare account holder.

    • Address of shareholder: Enter your address accurately, as this is how Computershare will contact you.

    • If you haven't done so already, you must print the form at this point.

    • With wet ink, write your name clearly, sign the form and date it.

    • Scan the form back in (or take a photo of it) and upload it to the secure link that Cash App provided in the email.

The transfer will take 5-10 business days to process once received by the transfers team. If you're feeling unsure, you can check in on your transfer by contacting Cash App through their app, or their contact page.

If you don't have an existing Computershare account:

The broker and Computershare will take care of the transfer and open a Computershare account for you. This will take another 2-3 business days.

If you have an existing Computershare account:

Your broker will transfer the shares based on your name and address. As a result, a second account may be created for you. This can be for a few reasons, such as a middle initial existing on one account, but not the other. If your name and address match exactly, then the transfer will process within the normal amount of time. If not, then it will take another 2-3 business days.

Your broker may ask you for a Computershare account number. For security reasons we do not recommend giving this information to your broker. With Computershare accounts, the account number is the "key" that allows brokers to authorize a transfer of shares out of the DRS and back to the broker.

After your shares leave your broker:

You can wait 3-5 business days for your account statement to arrive in the mail, or you can begin your account creation early by using your SSN. Although if your name and address are entered differently to your broker it may open a second account. To open your account with your SSN:

  • Click on “Login to Investor Center”.

  • Click on “Register Now”.

  • Answer security questions such as Social Security number, ZIP Code, name of the stock that you hold (GameStop).

  • Computershare will then prompt you to create your username, password and security questions.

  • Once your account is created, Computershare will send you a verification letter in the mail.

You can wait 3-5 business days for the verification letter, or you can verify your identity immediately online.

To verify online, Computershare will ask some security questions based on info they take from LexisNexis. Please note, part of the process is to give a question with zero correct answers. So read the questions carefully.

When you receive the verification code letter:

  • Click on “Login to Investor Center”.

  • Login using the username, and password you have created.

  • Then you can enter the verification code.

  • You now have full access to your Computershare account!

  • There is no more need for the verification code.

  • We recommend you now activate your two-step verification (2FA) to improve your account security. You can set this up by going to: "My Profile", then "Account Security Preferences".
