How to Find My Venmo ID?

Venmo is a mobile payment platform that allows users to send and receive money using their mobile devices. The app can be downloaded for Apple and Android devices.

The Venmo app allows users to link their bank accounts, credit cards, or debit cards to pay friends back for dinner or other purchases with a swipe of their finger instead of cash or checks. Using Venmo as an alternative payment method for online purchases is also possible, though this feature is currently limited to select businesses.

Venmo charges no fees for sending money from one person to another within the app; however, costs are associated with sending money from a bank account or credit card linked through Venmo.


How to Find My Venmo ID?

Your Venmo ID is your Venmo username. To find your Venmo ID, open the Venmo app and go to the “Me” tab by tapping your picture or initials. In the next step, go to the Settings gear (tap the top right wheel), and in the “Account” section, press “Preferences” or “Edit Profile” to see your username as your Venmo ID. Here, you can update your username, too.

Let us see this using images:

1. First, you need to open the Venmo app.
