Pay with Venmo offers a simplified mobile checkout experience at no additional cost to you. Your buyers get:

  • A streamlined checkout process.

Buyer experience

Your buyers can use Venmo on the same pages they can use PayPal, including your product page, cart page, and checkout page.

Customer experience

  1. Buyer taps the Venmo button and their mobile device switches to the Venmo app to complete the transaction.
