Overview

Welcome to the new generation of Paypal. The Venmo app has been installed over ten million times and is by far the preferred money app for the younger generation. You can use it to split tabs at dinner, transfer money to roommates for rent, settle up for group events, or send surprise money to a loved one. It’s slick. It’s cool. It’s the future of financial transactions.

No one carries cash anymore, nor should they have to. Venmo now offers a Venmo Card which you can use everywhere MasterCard is accepted. You can transfer funds easily into and out of your bank and never get stuck short on funds again. It’s better than a debit card because you can use it to set limits on your spending. Load only what you’ll need.

Venmo was created by Paypal but is far more advanced and convenient than anything its parent company ever put out. Read about the history of the app at Venmo.com and then install it from the App Store. Venmo is available for all IOS and Android devices.
