Venmo App Comments & Reviews

Venmo Positive Reviews

Amazing App and Great UpdateI’ve been a Venmo user for a few years now and this is a finance app that does it right. I’ve loved seeing this company grow and expand their reach. It’s the easiest way to send money between friends, and with the new update, everything is so easily laid out within interface! You can tell they care about their users by how dedicated they are to both educating and making finances easily accessible for all. I use their credit card and it is easily one of my favorite credit cards I have. Your purchases are plainly laid out for you and automatically analyzed so you can see what categories you’re spending the most in. They have 3% cash back on the category I use the most, 2% on the second most used and 1% on everything else? It’s a no-brainer! I can use the funds that are sent to my by friends to pay off my balance or I can transfer those funds to the bank of my choosing for free. I just ordered their debit card (no monthly fees, no credit check, and has overdraft protection) and I can’t wait for it to arrive in the mail. They even have investing built right into the app which is something even the biggest bank apps are still lacking in providing to their users. Venmo is a one stop shop when it comes to finances, it would be the last finance app I get rid of. I never make reviews but they’ve honestly earned my praise and I can’t wait to see where this company goes in the future..Version: 9.4.0

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.Version: 8.16.2

Overall Good Experiences for YearsMy 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..Version: 8.13.1

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Honestly I will only use in alone now prior to the other day I was on the E using cash app but now I see Venmo actually works to resolve problems for their customers Cash App was basically like there’s nothing we can do we’re ending the conversation bye. They didn’t say here is what we found out do you have any more questions I can help you Liz nothing like that very nasty basically like since we have no answers we’re gonna and the conversation here and that’s it and I just didn’t like the way they push me off and pushed me to the side as if I’mNothing but I do not recommend Cash App to anyone their customer service is the worst Venmo is the best Pay Pal’s second and Cash App is not even on the same category of them to Cash App will take your money and then they will not tell you who they charge the money to so you can call that person and dispute the charge no they’re gonna just push the charge on my account and not tell me anything more other than we’re gonna end this conversation byeThey they didn’t ask one time do you have any more questions is there anything no and unfortunately I have to stay with Cash App for a little bit longer but I will be converting over to no catch up soon once I get everything straightened out becauseHad no interest in helping to customers solve a problem.Version: 9.7.0

Don’t make a mistake in this app!I sent my brother money through Venmo 18 days ago. He had not used the Venmo for a while. After I sent the money my brother informed me that he was not able to get into his Venmo account because the phone and banking information he used to set up his account had changed. I thought “no big deal, I’ll just cancel the transaction and use a different app.” Well, according to Venmo’s policy, only the recipient can send money back to the sender. The sender cannot cancel a transaction. So we have been going back and forth for 18 days by email trying to upload documents to prove that he is the owner of the account so that he can reset his account access the funds I sent him. I don’t understand why the process of updating one’s account is so complicated. The customer service by email is terrible in that they are not solution oriented. I am extremely put off by the fact that as a sender I cannot cancel a transaction. I am equally put off by the fact that there is no straight forward process for someone to reset their account. Luckily I sent it to my brother whom I know. I can only imagine what would have happened if I sent it to a stranger. I am not doing business with Venmo anymore. And I am recommending my friends not to either..Version: 8.5.1

So thankful!Venmo is the first place to actually approve me for an unsecured credit card! Now I’ve been able to get a couple of others! It’s super simple to figure out how to use it! From sending money, receiving money to paying for a purchase! I love how easy it is to pay on your credit card also! And it reports to the credit bureaus pretty much daily! So if you end up racking it up, make sure to pay a little on it here and there or to at least pay the minimum due by the due date and then your score will go up! I wouldn’t really max it out though unless you plan on paying on it real soon!!!! If it’s too high then it might affect your score! So try and take it a little easy! :) Oh and it did take around 14 points ISH when I applied. But it’s gone up since so I’m not really worried about it at all! I am very grateful for them!! If you think you can be responsible and ready to up your credit score…. Then this is definitely the one!! Self and Chime also helped my score. But this one is unsecured! :)) I’m not sure if it helped having just the regular card for a year that they first give you to transfer money between friends. But if it did then you might have to wait it out. It’s well worth it if that’s the case!.Version: 9.19.0

Unexpected Delays - No Course of ActionMore than once my account has been “frozen” by Venmo. It’s a period of time when your account and your funds in that account are not accessible. You’ll be asked for an image of your ID to be uploaded and then told to wait. Ironically, the purpose of this type of service is to be able to instantly transmit funds digitally, from anywhere you have a connection to the network/internet. So when you may need the service the most, and have done everything you as a user needs to do, Venmo may choose to freeze your account for review. Which means, you no longer have those funds in your bank account and you can’t use them through your Venmo account. So in my instance, when I’m trying to get funds to a family member in an emergency, and we’re talking a couple hundred bucks, it gets flagged and held at the most inopportune time. And of course, those funds are now out of my bank account so I’m not able to reroute them a different way to successfully get them to my family member in distress. And BTW, I entered those funds on Venmo buying some Cryptocurrency. Only to find out you’re not able to send or trade Crypto on Venmo. Completely useless! That won’t earn you many 5 star ratings..Version: 9.4.0

Beware using this app!I used this app for a little while with very little issues until just recently. I need to transfer $800 worth from a friend you owed me money to my bank account. They paid via Venmo and now when I do the instant transfer to my bank account, Venmo will not allow the funds to transfer. When I spoke to a customer service rep they said to use the regular transfer option and stated that it would take 1-3 business days. All that is fine but the real kicker is they mentioned that the 1-3 business days are not guaranteed. There would be a chance that they would have to delay it further if necessary. They said they are not allowed to give a reason why the instant transfer won’t work nor why they wouldn’t be able to transfer the money past the 3 business days. When I asked if it was possible my money would be stuck in Venmo they were quiet and wouldn’t give me a direct response. Do NOT trust this app. Especially with large amounts of money. It was foolish of me to be inspired by small transactions to gain confidence in them with bigger transactions. My two cents is stick with Apple Pay or a regular bank account. If I did I wouldn’t be out over $800 in a few hours. DO NOT DOWNLOAD.Version: 8.9.0

Reliable, User-friendly, & ConvenientI have yet to have any issues using this money transfer service. The app itself is simple to use & provides a convenient way to send & receive money between it’s users. Venmo not only provides independent contractors with an electronic avenue to be paid/reimbursed, it also provides users the ability to track their activity electronically & keep a paperless record of all of their transaction history. I use Venmo on a regular basis for both personal & professional reasons, it makes it easy for people, like myself, who don’t tend to carry cash. Whether it’s to pay a sitter last minute or make an impromptu purchase at a yard sale, I’ve been able to use Venmo in place of cash on multiple occasions, saving many trips to to the ATM. With the ability to instantly send & receive money, Venmo simplifies group spending by allowing a single person to make a purchase or cover a bill for the group as a whole rather than attempting to split the cost amongst multiple people. These are just a few of the benefits I’ve experienced as a Venmo user & I’d recommend this app to anyone looking to simplify their financial activities..Version: 8.25.2

Privacy issuesTransaction wise I have really had no problems with so far. I haven’t experienced a frozen account or deletion. My main question is what is the purpose of listing transactions for everyone to see. I may be able to hide mine but I can still see everyone else’s. That’s a privacy issue. Why even do that? What useful purpose is there to list people’s transaction. I think it’s a horrible feature and has no practical purpose. No one needs to know who paid who for what. It doesn’t make it better because amounts aren’t shown. None of the transaction should be shown. I would really like to hear the answer to this question. What is the purpose? I know I’m not alone with this line of thinking because I’ve had conversations with people about it. If it weren’t for a few people asking me to add the app I would never use it even though transactionally I’ve never had problems. I think this feature is a privacy issue and it’s not your place to put out there who I’m paying money to and for what. It doesn’t even sound like it should be legal. I’m sure it is since you do it but it doesn’t sound like it nor should it be. I think that entire part of the app should be removed. But I would like an answer. I’m so curious to know why this is a good idea..Version: 9.4.1

Was good-they Dont support joint accountsThey were great. Until I was had to change my bank to my husbands because we’re married. I tried to add my bank account but it wouldn’t let me. I contacted Venmo they that since my husband already was connected to our checking I couldn’t. They only allow one Venmo per checking account. They said I would have to add my debit or credit card which they will take 1% for debit charges and 3% for credit. I use Venmo more than my husband so we decided I would link my Venmo to the checking account and he would link his account to our debit card. He deleted the checking account but it still wouldn’t let me link to checking. Contacted Venmo again and they said that even though he deleted the bank, he still is linked to the account until he calls them himself to “release” his account.. suspect. My husband is a marine so he isn’t home often. He was out in the field at the time so I had to wait til he was home. But when he gets off work, they’re customer service is closed. This has been so ridiculous. Does everyone else know that their bank account stays linked even after they delete it.. doesn’t seem very cool..Version: 7.29.0

Great New Gossip FeederIt’s super nice that they make transactions public by default unless you change your settings!!! I got off all social media but can still tell which of my friends are in a relationship based on the Venmo transactions I see going between them. Though honestly, it’s a bit much to have to know that two dudes I went to school with years ago are paying each other back for toilet paper and pizza every week. Why do I even have all these Venmo friends? I never chose them consciously. Being serious though, it’s a very handy, easy-to-use app and becomes more and more convenient as more individuals and businesses start using it. I buy groceries at the farmer’s market, receive payments for dog sitting, etc. all through Venmo... for free! I still don’t know how it’s a sustainable business model for Venmo, but it’s awfully nice for me. And splitting checks at a restaurant or whatever is amazingly simple now... gone are the days of your distant acquaintance saying, “I’ll pay you back when I get a chance to grab cash from an ATM,” and then conveniently forgetting for the rest of her life. Just look her in the eye and state your Venmo handle right from the restaurant table so she has no excuse!.Version: 8.9.0

Really handy - a few issuesI 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!.Version: 7.21.1
