In order to make a payment or send money to another person, you must first have sufficient funds in your bank account. Even with Venmo, this holds true.

Here, we'll discuss how to fund your Venmo account, the various options available to you, and the steps involved in doing so.

The process of depositing funds into a Venmo account.

In order to send money to other Venmo users after creating an account, you must first add a funding source to your account. You can do this with a checking or savings account, or by using a debit or credit card1.

You can also add money to your Venmo account by receiving payments from other users.


Pay for things with Venmo using your bank account.

You can link a bank account to your Venmo profile and use it as a funding source whenever you want to make a payment. If you choose this method of payment, funds will be automatically deducted from your bank account at the time of the transaction.

Below are the measures to take in order to link your bank account:

  • Select an option by clicking the menu icon (three vertical dots).
  • To configure how you'll be charged, head to the Settings page.
  • Simply select Bank from the "Add bank or card" menu.
  • The next step is to select a verification technique.

You can verify your account in one of two ways before you can make any transactions with Venmo: manually or instantly.

Simply providing your bank's account number and routing number is sufficient when adding a bank account manually. Avoid entering your check number because doing so will likely result in a failed or rejected transfer.

To verify your account, Venmo will manually transfer small amounts of money, typically a dollar or less. Keep enough money in your bank account to cover your expenses and avoid any fees associated with going overdrawn.

By entering your bank account details, you can also receive instant verification. If your bank supports instant verification, you'll be asked to log in with the same credentials you use to access your online banking account.

You can use your credit card or debit card to pay with Venmo.

Like many other online services, you'll need to initially set up your Venmo account by providing some basic card information before you can use it to make a payment.

In order to accomplish this, you must:

  • Select an option by clicking the menu button (three vertical dots).
  • Next, click on Settings, and then Payment Methods.
  • Choose the Card option after clicking Add bank or card.
  • You can add your card details either manually or by using the camera on your mobile device.

You should have the details for the issuer's customer service team handy. Because a new zip code or address can cause your card to be rejected during verification, this is the case.

Remember that once you've added a card to Venmo, you can't change any of the details associated with that card. In the event that your card's expiration date changes, for example, you will need to deactivate it and re-register it with the updated details3.

Venmo plans to release a new feature that will allow joint use of a debit card by two users who are joint cardholders.

Funding your Venmo account

Your Venmo balance can be topped off instantly with funds from a linked bank account if you have a debit card.

These are the measures you should take when adding funds to your Venmo account:

  1. To view your available balance, open your transaction history, and select Manage balance from the menu on the top right.
  2. Once you've entered the sum you'd like to add, click the button labeled "Done."
  3. Select the destination account and click Next to proceed with the money transfer.
  4. Tap Add Money after reviewing the transfer details and expected arrival time.

Take into account that the transfer is final after step 4.

There can be a delay of up to 5 business days between the time a payment is made and when it appears in your Venmo balance due to weekends and holidays.

Keeping funds in a foreign currency Try Wise

In the United States, Venmo is a convenient payment option; however, the service does not permit users to store or use funds from accounts located in other countries.

Wise is a fast and low-cost money transfer service. You can send and spend money like a local with just four easy steps:

  1. You can join for no cost by registering here.
  2. A balance in your chosen currency is waiting for you.
  3. Select Accumulate Costs
  4. Put down some money for the refill (via e-check, wire, or credit card).

Do it now! Register

It's a nice perk to have the option to transfer funds online, especially when doing so requires so little effort on your part. In the United States, Venmo is an option worth considering. If you need more comprehensive protection, however, Wise could be a better option.
