After you pay for a purchase with Venmo, you will be prompted with the option to split or share your purchase. You can also split or share purchases from your personal transactions feed in the Venmo app.
Can I split my purchases?
You can send charge requests to split a purchase with one or many users, and you can change the amount requested from each user so the purchase isn’t evenly split. You’ll be able to see the total amount you’ll request as you change the amount requested from each user, and whether the requested total is above or below the split amount. (Any split transaction will not affect your original payment amount.) You also have the option of excluding yourself from the split calculation. When you split a purchase, you’ll send charge requests to other users. The other users must accept the request in order to complete the payment.
Can I cancel a split request?
If you need to cancel a pending payment request from a split, go to the “Me” tab and find the transaction at the top of your feed. From here, you can cancel a split request or remind the other user(s) about the request.
Are my purchases private?
As with payments on Venmo, you can set the privacy level for each individual purchase. All purchases default to the Private privacy setting so you can choose which you want to share and when. You can share a purchase (which will change the privacy settings on the purchase) by tapping on it from your personal transactions feed under the “Me” tab and selecting "Share". If you do choose to share your activity, we will always keep the purchase amount private.
