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.
Forgot my bank account on purpose...?
I really like this app. It makes transferring money from your friends or family easy and free if you have the three days to wait. I liked the option that was only $.25 to directly put it on your debit card but now it’s a certain percentage of the transaction which can get pretty costly. Also I tried to send money recently and they “forgot” my bank account. So when I went to re-sign up of course they gave me two options. The first one was the fastest and I could’ve been approved that day but I would have to give them access to my bank account which said they can see exactly how much money I have in there whenever they want to make sure it “covers” the transaction! I didn’t like that idea so I chose option two which took three days but I just had to type in my account and routing number so they just take money out. I didn't want them to have access into my account to see how much $ I had. I just think that’s non of there business. Fortunately I could wait for three days to send the money but I’m sure a lot of people who sign up that day to send money quickly, don’t read the full contract and realize what they’re giving them permission to do. Read what you sign people !
They really froze my account and trying to hold my money
Okay hello my name is johniqua so it says that Venmo is holding my money okay after my money is returned I’m not using Venmo again. I understand I violated some kind of rule or whatever. I clearly explained what happened plenty of times 4 times in a row sent my ny stat Id picture twice. I don’t get it I couldn’t put the money on my card I clearly explained that then it says I can’t use my account how in the world is it that sending money is so difficult. when you try to get your hard earned money back to you. which your the rightful owner of someone tells you they’re gonna hold it oh heck no. I will like my money returned to me no one has to ever worry about me using this app again. I’m sure I will never use this app. I will be darned if someone freezes my account then I give my Id and tells me they’re holding on to my money as if I’m a little kid who just got there allowance and is spending to much money I understand not you fault I chose this app and have to deal with whatever but if I knew I was causing trouble sending the money back to my boyfriend and requesting it back because we both couldn’t find a card to place the money on I would’ve been asked my sister to use her bank card to put my money on man why the heck why do I have to go through this so I really can’t get my money back
