Please be aware that payments funded by credit cards are subject to our standard 3% fee. Making purchases from authorized merchants with Venmo is always free, even if you use a credit card. Please see this article for information about purchasing with Venmo. Some credit card providers charge cash advance fees (possibly including an additional dollar amount or percent rate, in addition to other possible cash advance service fees, including a higher APR) if you use your credit card to make payments to friends on Venmo. For more information about whether your card provider charges these fees, contact your card provider. For more information about fees please see this article.
If you’re having trouble adding your credit or debit card to Venmo, the best thing to do is reach out to your card issuer to confirm that there are no issues. Oftentimes cards are declined because of a recent zip code or address change - your card issuer should be able to tell you more.
