- To use Venmo to the fullest, you should verify your phone number and email address as soon as you sign up.
- Without a verified phone account, transfer funds to your bank or send/request payments are unavailable.
If you live in the United States, have a U.S. based bank account and phone number, and can send and receive texts from short codes, then Venmo is for you!
Currently, Venmo is available only for U.S. citizens and works with only dollars.
To make payments using the Venmo app, you can simply tap on it while logged into your account. You’ll see your Venmo balance or backup bank account for convenience if needed.
