Re: Sending money from PayPal to Venmo

This is ridiculous, PayPal owns venmo. I don't want my info available through yet another online app. These apps should communicate without issue. Banks do this through routing # and account #.

Re: Sending money from PayPal to Venmo

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.

Re: Sending money from PayPal to Venmo

Doesn’t PayPal own VENMO? Where’s Elon? I want a Mars refund; this is entirely too many processes; imagine what the lines are going to look like on the red planet; my goodness my gracious, let’s get a fix on this; stat! okay google web hook me up! While u are it, loan me 30 bucks. Twenty 20 Times. If it’s broke figured out an app to fix it, that’s the entire makeup of this Web Dev. WAKEUP—what? We’re here! Where? Mars Dear; oh, looks hot; or— is it looks cold, u know because it’s soo— ok u get it. 🤓

Re: Sending money from PayPal to Venmo

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?

Re: Sending money from PayPal to Venmo

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?

Re: Sending money from PayPal to Venmo

I have a PayPal cash card. This is linked to a Wells Fargo account. Linking venmo to this account doesn't do anything. Furthermore, I have lost my paypal card, and cannot activate my venmo card because "one is already in use". So, in this case, linking the account does not work, and you cannot have a PayPal and venmo card either at the same time or linked to the same account(not sure which yet).

Re: Sending money from PayPal to Venmo

So basically what you are saying is open a venmo account, correct?

Re: Sending money from PayPal to Venmo

So you have to wait until your the money you transferred to your bank from PayPal clears your bank and THEN you can use your Venmo. Ridiculous.

Re: Sending money from PayPal to Venmo

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.

Re: Sending money from PayPal to Venmo

Thanks Starrsfalls,

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.
