Venmo is a mobile payment service owned by PayPal, Inc. It allows users to transfer money to one another using a phone app. The app is available on both iOS and Android platforms. Venmo has over 7 million active users and was processing more than $40 billion in payments per year.

In March 2016, Venmo was acquired by PayPal for $800 million. At the time of the acquisition, Venmo was processing $20 billion in payments per year. In January 2018, that number had grown to $40 billion.

Venmo is popular with millennials, who make up the majority of its user base. In fact, a recent study found that 34% of all U.S. adults aged 18-34 have used Venmo in the past year.


Despite its popularity, Venmo has not been without its problems. In 2016, the company was criticized for its lax security measures after it was revealed that hackers had stolen millions of dollars from Venmo accounts.

In 2017, Venmo came under fire again when it was revealed that the company had been sharing users’ transaction data with advertisers. The company has since made changes to its privacy policy and now only shares aggregated and anonymized data with third parties.

If you’re thinking of using Venmo, there are a few things you should know. First, you’ll need to create an account with either a phone number or email address. Once your account is created, you can link your bank account or debit card so you can start making payments.

Venmo is free to use if you’re sending money from your bank account, debit card, or PayPal balance. There’s a 3% fee if you’re sending money from a credit card. When you receive money, it goes into your Venmo balance. You can then either spend that money using your Venmo debit card or transfer it to your bank account.

One thing to keep in mind is that Venmo is not a replacement for a traditional bank account. If you’re looking for a mobile payment service that’s easy to use and popular with millennials, Venmo is a good option. Just be sure to link your bank account or debit card so you can avoid fees, and keep in mind that Venmo is not a replacement for a traditional bank account.
