To add a bank account to your Venmo account from a computer, click here and select "Link Bank Account" then follow the instructions.
If you’re in the app please follow the instructions below:
- Tap the "☰" icon at the top of the app
- Tap “Settings” and then “Payment Methods”
- Tap “Add a bank or card...” and then select “Bank”
- Select your preferred verification method
If you choose to add your bank account manually, do not enter the check number that appears after your account number. This can cause transfers to fail or be rejected by your bank. Additionally, when you add your bank account to Venmo manually, we'll send microtransfers to your bank account to verify ownership (these will each be $1 or less). To avoid any overdraft or other bank fees make sure you have at least $2 in your bank account.
Once you add a bank account, we strongly recommend that you verify it before transferring funds or sending a payment. Venmo is not responsible for lost bank transfers as a result of incorrect bank credentials. For information on how to verify your account, please see our help article.
