In this article, we’ll walk you through everything you need to know about using Venmo on Poshmark, so stick around.
How to Use Venmo on Poshmark?

- Tap on “Open” when the Venmo popup appears
- In the Venmo app, choose the account you’ll use to make purchases on Poshmark

Making Purchases on Poshmark Using Venmo
In general, you can pay for products on Poshmark in one of two ways:
1. “Buy Now”
If you’re on a page that allows you to purchase a listing using a “Buy Now” option, then:
- Tap the “Buy Now” button
- Provide your payment and shipping information
- Tap on “Submit” to complete the purchase
2. “Make an Offer”
If you’re on a page that allows you to “Make an Offer” to purchase a listing, then:

- Provide your offer and select “Next” (in-app) or “Submit” (on the web)
- Provide your payment and shipping information

To pay for a Poshmark listing with Venmo in either of the cases above, you’ll have to select Venmo from the list of payment options when you reach the step where you have to provide your payment information. It’ll be only available if you’ve added Venmo as a payment method to Poshmark.
Alternatively, if you haven’t set Venmo as a payment method, you can pay for a listing by tapping on the “Pay With Venmo” button provided in the Poshmark app. This action authorizes the purchase, after which you’ll receive a prompt asking for permission to link your Venmo account with Poshmark.
When you grant Poshmark permission to link to your Venmo account, it’ll be able to charge your Venmo account on the current transaction and future transactions if you decide to shop on Poshmark using Venmo.
Can I Remove My Venmo Account from Poshmark?

- Launch the Venmo app
- Navigate to “Settings”
- Under “Settings,” tap on “Connected Merchants”
- Find Poshmark in the list and select it
- Tap the “Disconnect” button at the bottom of the screen
While Venmo may still appear as a payment option in Poshmark after you’ve disconnected it, it’s normal and means that Poshmark has yet to refresh your account. However, Poshmark won’t be able to charge your Venmo account once you’ve made the disconnection from the Venmo app.
