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?
If you have the PayPal MasterCard debit card, which spends from your PayPal balance, then save yourself days of waiting for funds transfers and just ***fund your Venmo transaction with the PayPal MasterCard debit card***.
I do have a PayPal debit card but they charge you to use it (both to "load it" by downloading money from your PayPal account to use it for payments and to use it to withdraw from your PayPal balance using an ATM.
PAYPAL, FIX THIS! I don't want to sign up for venmo because i have paypal. You already have my information.
I agree! Please fix this! Doesn't seem like much to ask from a consumer's stand point. Two products under the same umbrella should be able to talk to each other. I want to send funds from my Paypal to a friend's Venmo. Now I have to go through the hassel of installing the Venmo app, setting it up, just to send one payment then uninstall Venmo. What a headache.
Upvoting this. It is a major hassel to go through the trouble of setting up Venmo for a payment when one already has paypal. Obviously redundant but more importantly it reduces the security of an indivual's finances because of the additional access point. I'm tempted to remove my business from paypal because this is hints at a disregard for customer security.
