If you have been avoiding using cash in all your payment transactions, Venmo is an excellent alternative. Using the Venmo mobile app, you can pay or request money from anyone that will directly go to your account or be taken from it. Venmo is a safe and reliable social payment platform, so you don’t have to deal with cash if you don’t want to.
To use Venmo, you need to set a funding source. It is where you can get the fund you need when you have to transfer payments to a friend or pay for your online purchases to a merchant. Venmo lets you set up your funding source right at the start. You can choose your Venmo balance, credit or debit card, or bank account.
Your Venmo balance is where all the money that you received from others goes to. For instance, if a friend sends you $10, it will go directly to your Venmo balance. You can use it for other payments that you have to make. If you don’t have a Venmo balance, you can add and link your credit/debit card or connect your US bank account. It will be your primary funding source when you need to pay someone.
The good thing is Venmo lets you add a new default payment method or a backup payment option even when you have been using the app for a long time. You can also update your current payment method and make the necessary changes such as setting a default option.
