Can I add a tip when I pay a business?
Business owners decide whether to accept tips for payments sent to their profile. If you’re prompted to add a tip, you can select a preset amount or enter a custom amount to add to your payment total. Please note, the value of your tip can not exceed the lower of 5 times the original payment amount or $1000.
The full amount of your payment (plus any tip you’ve added) will be charged to a single payment method.
How can I pay a business profile?
Paying a business profile is as easy as paying your friends on Venmo. There are just a few important things to keep in mind to make sure your payment is sent to the right place:
- Be sure to search for the business profile using their name or username. Phone numbers and email addresses can’t be used to locate or pay a business on Venmo.
- After initiating a search, be sure to toggle to “Business” to view business profiles that match your search terms. The “People” tab will only show personal profiles.
- If the business you want to pay has shared their QR code with you, simply tap “Scan” at the bottom of your screen to scan their code. This code will take you right to the business profile so you can pay them directly.
If you experience any issues when trying to pay a business on Venmo, we recommend first reaching out to the business to see if they have more information. If the issue persists, contact us so we can take a closer look.
