Your account information is secure through encryption that protects your account information and monitors accounts for unauthorized activity. What’s unique about the Venmo application is that you cannot access it on a computer or laptop. You are only able to spend your funds through the application on your mobile device.

Venmo charges no fees to use the service. There is the exception of a standard 3% fee applied to credit cards. Venmo also doubles as a social media application that allows users to keep in touch with one another while exchanging money. Do you owe your friend gas money? Venmo is a great place to send them the funds without handling cash.

You can sync Venmo with other social media like Facebook to find friends already on the application. Venmo even allows you to split costs with friends within the application. According to Venmo, there are now millions of merchants that accept Venmo as a payment option. If you’re shopping online, you can make Venmo purchases directly through the mobile website.

You’ll only need to launch the PayPal checkout on a mobile device. If the merchant accepts Venmo, you’ll also see the Venmo checkout button.

If you have a Venmo card, you can pay wherever Mastercard is accepted.

If you’re able to make payments through Venmo, you’ll see the option through the Venmo-branded payment option.

In some cases, you may need to select PayPal as your payment method before you see the Venmo option.

If you cannot find the Venmo button, it means that the merchant does not accept Venmo.
