Venmo is the simple, fun money app for sending cash quickly between friends and shopping at your favorite online stores. Split purchases to avoid awkward IOUs, share your new buys, and catch up on what your friends are doing on the feed.

“Just Venmo me” has become synonymous with “pay me back” or “I got it.” —Business Insider

Send money quickly to friends by simply linking your payment method. There’s no transaction fee for sending money with your debit card or bank account. Use your Venmo balance for payments, or easily cash it out to your bank.

Every penny tells a story, whether it’s for a group dinner, road trip, or concert. Add notes to your payments using your favorite emojis, and like or comment on friends’ stories.

Check out without your wallet. Use Venmo to pay in select mobile apps or at millions of retailers on mobile web—for free—so you can easily make, split, and share purchases with friends.

Easily track your finances. Keep up with what you owe, what friends owe you, and what you’ve bought.

What's New

Version 7.18.0

You got enough privacy-policy emails in the last couple weeks. So, we aren’t doing that (at least not with this release).

But if your credit or debit card expires when you want to pay with Venmo, it’s now much easier to update it—right during checkout. Oh, and we also made a few tweaks to our privacy education.

Much easier to use than writing a paper check.


Very easy to use money transferred instantly. Much easier than writing a traditional check. I believe Venmo is also PayPal. I took away one star due to privacy. When you sign up it automatically uploads all of your contacts in your phone without warning. It also connects to social media like Facebook. Once you've registered you can change these privacy settings, so be aware to go to settings immediately if you don't want all of your contacts who use Venmo to see your transactions. Also for each transaction you can select if you'd like your friends, the public to see Who you've paid, minus the amount. You can also set each transaction to private. Personally, I don't understand why it's anyone else's business who you pay for what kind of service. It's a Bizzarre concept to me, but then I don't live my life through social media. I am only using Venmo as a form of payment, like cleaning services. Still, it's easy to use and convenient. Just make sure to check Settings before you start transactions unless you want all of your friends, Family and coworkers to know what you're up to.

Venmo Is Great for Musicians!!!


As a musician and a band director, I'm always on the go, which means that sometimes I forget to bring my checkbook to a gig. Musicians should never be paid late. Their paid to perform, not paid to wait on checks. This app allows you to quickly and seamlessly transfer money back and forth between clients, friends, and family members.

I was reluctant at first, preferring to never enter my bank information online. I've been with them for two years now. I've transferred payment many times, and have done so without a single breach in security. Here's the kicker: It's all been free! I wholeheartedly endorse this application, and it has become my primary tool for sending and receiving payment!

Keep up the great work, Venmo! Thank you for your updates, thank you for your quick service, and, most of all, thank you for the peace of mind that comes with knowing every payment is fast, secure, and confidential!

Poorly informed customer service reps


I paid the wrong person and needed to recover the funds. The person emailed me and said “I don’t think I am the one you wanted to pay, I am sending a payment now to you”. I was told by the rep that t would take 3 days to post on my act, it posted immediately. Furthermore I was told that my account I have could not be used for it wasn’t a checking account and that the bank that holds the account wasn’t going to work. I tried to explain that I have a routing number and a account number and get a direct deposit, but she was trying to tell me things and not listening. I asked to speak to a manager 4 times finally she said hold , then was put on hold for 17 mins and then was disconnected.
Well I decided to try to u my account and bam it worked - and it should be posted to my account by Wednesday- that’s a lot different then 3 days
