Overall Good Experiences for Years
My identity was recently stolen and I am waiting for a new debit card in the mail. That incident rendered my current debit card useless until the new one arrives. Because my bank account is attached to my Venmo account, I am able to transfer funds from my bank account directly to my Venmo balance, then use my Venmo card until my new debit card arrives. It made transactions very convenient, and with Venmo rewards I was able to earn almost $5 back after using my Venmo card at Walgreens. That was pretty cool. I love the convenience of Venmo and the fact that many of my friends have it makes it easy to pay people for miscellaneous purchases or goods/services. I recommend Venmo and have been pleased with the app so far. I have had an account for at least a few years now and have never had any huge issues. One time, I did pay someone and they scammed me, but because of Venmo’s policies I wasn’t able to get the money back. I own my mistake and realize that it’s not Venmo’s fault that I was scammed. I do wish they had some better options (like refunds, or at least partial refunds) for people like me who get scammed and don’t realize it until the transaction has been processed. Other than that, I will still continue to use this app and recommend it to others because of its convenience.
They lie to you
I have never had any problems with this company/app but today really changed all of that. I wanted to add money to my account to cover some charges so I transferred almost $90 from my bank account to my Venmo account. If you have used this app before you know when you make a payment to someone the money comes out of your bank the next day. I checked my bank account and it came out so I check Venmo and it doesn’t show up. I talk to customer service on the chat, over email, and on the phone. Over chat and email they tell me it is run as an ACH transfer and takes 3-5 business days to show in my account. I work in a bank with these types of transfers and they never and I mean NEVER take 3-5 days. They take one at the most two days. Furthermore it was not run as an ACH transfer it was run as an auto debit (as if I swiped my debit card). I asked multiple times why I was being lied to and no answers just a run around. The girl at customer service on the phone was really trying to help me but she just didn’t have any information. I don’t know if she was new or if they just don’t care enough about their customers and employees to give them info and training to be able to help people.
Don’t EVER put money in your Venmo account. Wait for them to take it out of your account after you transfer it/make payments. They will take your money then lie to you and hold it for as long as they can get away with it.
Constant issues with Venmo freezing my money
They’re holding money paid to me by friends of about 183$. I tried transferring to my bank account and it shows my account is frozen. I can’t transfer it my account and can’t pay someone off the limbo balance. I’ve contacted customer service, email, live chat, read all the preprinted information which doesn’t help since all those are about money owed. This is money for me that’s just sitting there. I’ve sent them a copy of my drivers license to show it’s me. Signed up in Facebook where I only have one account. It’s still saying to contact customer support! What else am I supposed to do. It’s signed up to a new bank account at a credit union. So I correctly entered the routing number and proper account. It’s still frozen. No answer. My account is verified through email. We are at a stand sat I’ll since January. I just want my account open and give me my money. So I ask my friends if it came back to them? Pay me again but in cash? I don’t know what to do at this point but I’m losing money because nobody can pay me in Venmo. So many dinners where nobody has cash so we all Venmo. I’ve lost money friends are trying to reimburse me. I never see it because....my account is still frozen. Since January. 😑 my bank can’t speak to third party and it’s not my bank with the issues.
