Ratings and Reviews
Venmo is amazing!
Despite some of the bad reviews that I’ve read, I actually have had nothing but great experiences with Venmo! I started my account to only use it to send rent money to my landlord but then I said to myself let me try the debit card out, which is also awesome! I literally had no money to eat on at work for lunch and payday was one day away so I swiped my Venmo debit card just to see if it would work & it did! I looked in the app, so basically Venmo will take from your bank account in inclements of $10 even if your bank doesn’t have any money in it, which I love! But do not take a risk on it if you do not plan on getting paid within a day because then the money will be charged from you bank (WITH NO FEE best of all!) but if you don’t put the money to cover what Venmo took from your bank with in the next day then your bank will charge you fees of course, but I got paid that Thursday so my direct deposit hit before Venmo took it! So it was Perfect thank god I had “a borrow” in a since to get my lunch! Then paid back the before the money charged my bank account (paid for the items Tuesday night, then Venmo took the money out of my bank Thursday) 😊and (Knock on wood) I haven’t had any problems such as other reviewers on here! Thank God! Venmo is really great Believe it or not & I genuinely haven’t seen any fees what so ever like most prepaid cards/apps
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.
