Quick payments. Once you have an account set up, Venmo can look up your contacts to figure out who is already using the service. Otherwise, you can invite people. Find the person you want, then input the amount and add a note for what the money is for. Then send it, and the debt is paid! Never lose track of your debts and loans ever again.
Activity feed. If you're ever curious what others are using Venmo for, just check the activity feed. You can see who other users are sending money to and why. It's also a good way to see who in your network is paying and receiving money from. While we aren't sure why this is necessary, it's something that sets Venmo apart from the rest.
What is it about?
Venmo is another peer-to-peer payment app. Just set up your account with your information, debit or bank account, and you're good to go. You can send payments to others while including a note so you can make sure you and the other party know what the money is for, and you can get money from others just as quickly. Remember to cash out to have that money transferred overnight to your bank account, so it's ready the next day. It's fast and secure to use.
For those who...
- Like fast transfers to their banks
- Must include notes for payments
- Don't mind waiting overnight for money
Not for those who...
- Already have a secure app to send and receive money
- Prefer instantaneous payments
- Don't need notes on payments
Why we love it
It's simple and has a great process for sending and receiving money.
