You cannot currently add your PayPal debit card to your Venmo account, as Venmo detects this and throws an error message. 😞
I hope this gets fixed, as there's no good reason for it.
And what about the reverse? Sending money to Paypal from Venmo? I can't find answers on Paypal about this. I don't want to get another app with all its corresponding risks and password challenges when I've already got Paypal. It should work. Pay for the developers to do this. Maybe paypal is going to go away? Does it philosophically link with Millenials? Post-Millenials? Is it written in another programming language?
This is really not an acceptable solution. It requires the use of venmo, the linking of accounts, and higher risk in a cyber market that seems to be constantly under attack. A solution is using Paypal, not venmo, to pay venmo. So the question is now that we are in 2018, is there an actual solution for this problem?
I'm not sure anyone has already posted this, but I have a Venmo Mastercard. I Was able to add it to PayPal and transfer the funds directly to my Venmo account no problem.
That may help some people, but the original question is from someone who has PayPal, does not have Venmo (account or card), and the person they want to send money to has only Venmo (does not have a PayPal account or card).
The issue is that a person with PayPal (not Venmo) wants to send money to a person who has Venmo (not PayPal).
The comment about using the venmo card etc, was not addressing the question at hand.
There are sill lots of people who have PayPal, and don't want Venmo. There are also lots of people who have Venmo and do not want PayPal. The two are actually the same company, so it shouldn't be a problem, but it is, and this is frustrating to many people.
