  • Just out for money

    By josie843
    Boy, would I give Venmo zero stars if I could. Let me start by saying, Is Venmo convenient? Yes But are they only out for themselves, YES. and are there plenty of other apps that can do the same thing?, YES. I recently sent a friend money on Venmo. Unfortunately, I sent this money to the wrong person. I have no way of contacting this person or getting in touch with them to send back the money. I thought the process would be quite easy to receive my money back once I reached out to Venmo, but boy was I wrong. I tried contacting Venmo through chat multiple times and each time they told me they wouldn’t be able to help me. I was certainly not going to give up that money just because they “couldn’t do anything for me”. I reached out to my bank and they were able to get me my money back after a couple of days. I was very happy until I received a message from Venmo stating that my bank was not authorizing the payment and that Venmo was going to “have my back” and loan me the money, this had essentially put me in debt with Venmo. Now, any money that I receive will go straight to them. This is absurd! I reached out to Venmo once again to explain to them the situation and they again told me that they could not do anything for me. Venmo is only out to make money off of their users. They will absolutely not have any sympathy or help you if there is any kind of mix up. STAY AWAY!
  • Much easier to use than writing a paper check.

    By sushichick66
    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.
  • Really handy - a few issues

    By handsomejex
    I use this app a ton and im a huge fan. One thing that enraged me though is that they’ll sometimes keep your money hostage when you try to pay someone , adding in layers of verification requirements while possibly collecting interest on the sums held up- they don't notify the sender that the money they sent was unclaimed allowing the sender to choose an alternative payment channel - I learned from a young homeless woman who had a Venmo account who i sent money to for train fare, that they would not allow her to accept what I sent. I consider this to be abusive of their fiduciary role. I want them to fix this and make it easier for people in her situation to access funds to be able to improve their situation or make it clear to the person who sends money that the money never reaches the intended recipient. I would give them fewer stars for this issue, but i find for regular use with established contacts it works well. I wish i had the option to preschedule payments or set regular payments. I also wish that my venmo balance would apply to my payment when the amount exceeds the balance- instead of sitting there!
  • Instant transfer fails!

    By Jenniferlori
    When I first downloaded and added the app I didn't have any problems. So I had my family download the app too. Then all of a sudden my instant transfer option was not working. The only option that would work is the standard 3 business day option. I called my bank and they said it wasn't them because Venmo didn't even attempt the transfer. When I contacted Venmo they had no idea why it was happening, they actually said that! Then they said that it does happen at random and I was the lucky one! Then they told me the only way I could transfer to my bank was by using the standard 3 day option. This is ridiculous! I only downloaded this app because of the instant transfer option. My KIDS were out of town and I needed to get funds to them immediately. Once again Venmo FAILED and couldn't make the transfer...only showing "Sorry your transfer did not go through". I tried to test it out and by sending someone else funds and it was all a hit or miss! One said he could transfer then of course could NOT. Either way my kids did not get their funds when they needed it!!! I had to drive 2 hours right after I had a baby to get it there because Venmo FAILED me again! Only use Venmo if you're not in any rush to see your money in your bank.
  • My funds are being held....

    By chyna1011
    Someone sent me $2,000 via Venmo b/c she uses it all the time & likes the convenience. I downloaded the app and signed up. She transferred the funds & i thought everything was great. I attempted to transfer for the money to my checking account but couldn’t. I paid a friend $300 that worked fine. I then tried to transfer $800 using the standard feature of 1-3 business days. The funds never arrived in my checking account & I was notified my account was frozen. I’ve called & chatted with the support team to no avail. I was emailed a request to send a copy of my drivers license and I did. I asked the sender to look into this with me. She was asked to send in her drivers license and she did. She received an email that her account was cleared. I have not received the requested $800 transfer that’s sitting in limbo & I’m not able to transfer the remaining $900 from my Venmo account and no one is Abe to tell me anything! All I’m getting is the Bailey person (account specialist) was reviewing my account & would email me. It’s 6 days later & still nothing!!! I understand verifying a large amount but really...I’ve called, the sender called & a copy of our drivers license was sent it!!!! What is the issue?! I’ve never tried Venmo b/4 this & once my money is released i never will again!!!! I need help!
  • Venmo is the worst!

    By KiaraChange
    In the beginning, Venmo worked really well for me. I was only using the app to receive payments from families that I babysit for. Super convenient. Over time, my boyfriend and I decided that we would use Venmo to save money for our trip to Orlando. On the day before the trip, my boyfriend transferred the money that we saved to my account so that I could deposit it. I tried to use the “Instant Transfer” option, but it wouldn’t allow me to so I called customer service. I spoke to a young woman who told me that there was some “suspicious activity” going on with my account. It was so frustrating because we weren’t able to get our money for another couple days. A few days after that incident, I received an email stating that my account was frozen and that I would need to send a photo of my I.D to them in order to get things straightened out. After sending the email, a lady named Vera R. (an account specialist with Venmo) responded to my email saying that my account is permanently deactivated! I was so confused and upset. Please do not waste your time with this app. It seems great and convenient in the beginning, but turns bad very quickly. Zelle is a great (and much safer) option for sending money to family and friends! :)
  • Basically perfect

    By alletoile
    I LOVE Venmo, my only complaint is that it can be annoying toggling between two different banks (one checking account with my bank where all my deposits go, the other is an online savings account where I put money aside to pay off loans and other bills). So if I’m using one account for every day payments, it’s a pain to switch to the other account to take money from there. But honestly it’s not that big of a deal overall, especially when this app makes it so quick and easy (and secure) to pay people. I hate owing money, so being able to almost instantly pay someone back is amazing. And I REALLY hate fronting the money for something, and there’s always the friend who is short right now but will get you back later...and you know you’ll never see that money again. Not anymore, it’s insanely simple to pay someone (and to send payment requests to anyone who “forgets” to pay you back right away). As Rihanna widely commanded, pay me what you owe me.

    Venmo has no security or regard for people’s money or safety. They advertise it as an app to transfer money but they do not let it commonly known to people that it should not be used to pay people for goods/services unless you are a lawyer and read through 25 pages of legal documents. If you get paid through Venmo, then Venmo can reverse the transaction without your approval and not provide any protection. There is no way to file a claim against Venmo and they will reverse your transaction after you think it’s already in your account. They don’t care at all about their users. I know a lot of people who use Venmo to pay people without knowing that it technically violates their terms of use because most people do not read through 25 pages of user terms and since it is owned by PayPal it is very confusing to normal users since you can use PayPal to pay people. Very deceiving and unethical business practices. I recommend people stop using Venmo and letting their friends know that their money is not secure. Venmo does not verify accounts or payments at all, so you cannot trust that you will get your money. I emailed customer service and the CEO but they don’t care and don’t even respond.
  • Venmo Is Great for Musicians!!!

    By TheHeartOfDavid
    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!
  • Venmo/paypal steals from customers

    By wochenschau
    As with any paypal-owned company, I kept zero to minmal balance in their hands. They froze my account a couple of times, demanding various sensitive personal identity or financial documents, to be delivered to them via plaintext (read; insecure) email. I refused and uploaded via https to their support site instead. That prevented them from seizing my funds until one day a friend sent over a three-figure amount for a plane ticket. Shortly thereafter, they froze my and my father’s accounts permanently, when 2 out of 10 small payments failed due to the VISA debit card refusing authorization. The “account specialist” “gustave” is a particularly nasty piece of work, always closing my tickets as “resolved” after demanding a large number of ID and financial documents which obviously takes time to assemble but I eventually all provided. In the end, Venmo has permanently shut down my account without returning the three-figure balance I have. An internet search turns up thousands of similar horror stories, with people losing even more than what Venmo has stolen from me. Avoid it at all cost. Paypal/venmo personnel should be individually snd jointly prosecuted for their criminal enterprises.
