What is this?
Venmo codes make it easier to find, add, and pay friends on Venmo! Just open the scanner in the Venmo app and center the camera over the code you want to scan. No need to tap! After you scan a friend’s code, you’ll be taken directly to their profile page. There, you can add them as a friend, send, or request funds. When you are viewing your code you can also share it with a friend through email, text messages, and more.
Where can I find my Venmo code?
Venmo codes can be found in three places in the app. To find your Venmo code tap the "☰" icon in the upper left corner of the app. There you can see you Venmo code next to your profile picture. If you tap on the code it will open a screen that will allow you to share your code or scan another user’s code. You can also find your code in the menu under “Scan Code” or on your profile page. At this time Venmo codes can only be found in the app but if you aren’t seeing them there then we would suggest updating your app.
How can I share my Venmo code?

If you tap on your code it will open a screen displaying your code. From there click on the share icon to display options for how to send the code to a friend. Your code can be texted, emailed, printed, and more through this menu.
