Linking Venmo to your Amex app
If you sign up for Amex Send & Split ™, you can use your Amex Send ™ Account to make payments to other Venmo users in the Venmo app. You can find more information about this process here.
Linking Amex to your Venmo app
If you link your Amex account to your Venmo profile, you’ll be able to use your Amex Send Account as a payment method for Venmo payments. Unlike an Amex Credit Card, an Amex Send Account would not be subject to a 3% credit card fee for Venmo P2P transactions. To link the two accounts, follow these steps in the Venmo app:
- Tap the “☰” icon at the top of the app
- Tap “Settings”
- Tap “Payment Methods”
- Tap “Add Bank or Card”
- Pick “Amex Send Account” from the list of options
From there, you will be able to sign into your Amex account. After you link the two accounts together, you will be able to either return to the Venmo app or add money to your Amex Send Account.
Please note: Your Amex Send Account can only be used for making Venmo payments to other Venmo users. You won’t be able to use your Amex Send Account as a payment method for purchases with Venmo.
