If you share ownership of a bank account with another Venmo user, you may both be able to use the bank account on Venmo. We are slowly rolling out a new feature to allow two Venmo users to share a bank account to fund payments on Venmo and initiate standard (or, if eligible, instant) bank transfers to the joint bank account.
If a joint bank account becomes invalid on one Venmo user’s account, it will be unusable (for payments and transfers) on the other user’s Venmo account, too. For more information about invalid bank accounts, visit this article.
Please note, transfers are reviewed which may result in delays or funds being frozen or removed from your Venmo account. Learn more here.
What if I received an unexpected notification that someone else added my bank account?
If you received a notification from Venmo that another user added your bank account to their Venmo account, we recommend talking to anyone else who has access to the bank account to determine if they added it to Venmo. If you don’t know who added the bank account to Venmo or are concerned about account security, please contact us immediately.
