Venmo QR codes allow you to make contactless in-store purchases using your Venmo account. Your Venmo account is already set up to start using QR codes in stores. Simply go to the Me tab in your Venmo app and tap the QR code next to your profile picture. You may need to follow the on-screen prompts to allow your camera to scan codes.
If you don’t see a “Show to Pay” QR code, please make sure you are using the most up-to-date version of the Venmo app.
How can I make purchases with Venmo QR codes?
There are two ways to use Venmo QR codes to make purchases:
- If the merchant is presenting you with a QR code, simply scan that code to proceed with the transaction. You’ll need to confirm the purchase in your app to complete the transaction.
- If the merchant needs to scan your in-store QR code, tap “Show to Pay” to present your QR code. If you want to change your payment method, you’ll need to do so before the merchant scans your code.
If you are a merchant and are interested in accepting Venmo QR codes at your business, please reach out to your Point of Sale (POS) provider. Venmo does not provide support for individual merchants’ POS systems.
