Why Your Venmo Balance Isn’t Showing Up?
If you try to access your balance in Venmo and your Venmo Balance is not showing up, this is because you didn’t verify your identity. Once you’re done with the verification, you’ll have access to this feature.
How to Check the Balance in Venmo?
You can check your account balance on the Venmo app by following the steps below:
- Open the “You” tab by clicking on the single person icon
- Then, on the top right, press on the “Settings” gear
- Click on “Payment Methods”
Your Venmo balance will appear at the top of your screen if this feature is enabled. As mentioned, verifying your identity will be required if you don’t see the Venmo balance.
You can also find your balance on the web by opening your profile page there.
Why Is It Important to Have Access to My Balance?
When you verify your account, you’ll be able to use your Venmo balance to perform the following transactions directly via Venmo:
- Pay your friends, family, and others
- Pay at checkouts on apps or websites that accept Venmo payments
- Pay using the QR code at in-store checkouts
In addition, once you verify your Venmo account and add a bank account, you’ll be eligible for a Venmo Mastercard® Debit Card. This way, you can add money easily from your bank account to Venmo and enjoy using it in your daily transactions.
Adding Funds to Your Venmo Balance From a Bank Account
As mentioned, customers using a Venmo Mastercard® Debit Card can now directly deposit money from a bank account into their Venmo balance. Follow these instructions to successfully finalize the transfer:
- Open the Venmo app
- Go to the “You” tab by clicking on the single person icon
- Then, at the top of your personal transactions feed, hit “Manage Balance”
- Type in the amount to be transferred and then press “Next”
- Choose the bank account from which you want to transfer funds
- Check the details of the transfer, and then click on “Add [amount of transfer] now”
When Will Your Funds Appear in Your Balance?
If you use the Standard Transfer method, it’ll take anywhere from 3-5 business days. Several factors, such as weekends and holidays, can impact the timing of the transfer. However, if the funds don’t appear in your Venmo account within 5 business days, contact Venmo Support.
And if you want the process to be faster, you can also opt for the Instant Transfer method.
