We’ve all heard ’em say… “Just Venmo me.” For the last 10 years, Venmo has been the go-to mobile app that lets people easily transfer money between friends, family and anyone else using the Venmo app. If you prefer not to open your wallet or make out a check, this may just work for you.

2. Open the Venmo app
3. Choose your sign up method and create a secure password (between 8 and 32 characters long).
4. Verify your phone number and email address
5. Add and verify your bank account


Easy! Your are now ready to make and receive payments…
