What is Venmo?
Venmo provides an easy way for friends and family to pay each other and bypass the need for cash or checks on the go. Beyond payments to friends and family, Venmo can be used to purchase items directly from participating approved apps and online stores, and at in-store merchants with certain Point of Sale (POS) systems.

I’m interested in accepting Venmo. How do I get this set up?
Thank you for your interest in using Venmo to accept payments for your business! Please see the following page for more information about accepting online payments and how to get started: https://venmo.com/business/start/
If this sounds like something you’re interested in, please reach out to Braintree: https://articles.braintreepayments.com/guides/payment-methods/venmo
We also offer the ability to accept Venmo through PayPal’s online checkout process, where users can select the Venmo payment option. Please keep in mind that this option will not add a separate Venmo payment button on your website.
This option is automatically available to PayPal merchants. You can find more information here.
- Venmo offers charity profiles for charitable organizations (and 501c3s) that have confirmed their charity status on PayPal. If you have a PayPal charity account, you can connect to Venmo from the PayPal App Center. Learn more about signing up for a Venmo charity profile.
- Venmo users can also use in-store QR codes at select merchants. If you are interested in accepting Venmo QR code payments at your business, please reach out to your Point of Sale (POS) provider. Venmo does not provide support for individual merchant’s POS systems.
Venmo should not otherwise be used to complete purchases, unless explicitly authorized by Venmo.
