How can I opt in for online purchases with Venmo?

Venmo website transactions currently only work with a supported browser on your mobile device (Safari for iPhone or Google Chrome for Android).

To opt in and purchase things online, open the Venmo app on your smartphone and tap on the ☰ icon at the top of the app, then tap on Settings. In Settings, there’s the Buying section. To use Venmo to pay during checkout, tap Enable Mobile Web Purchase or Connect Browsers.

I am not seeing the Venmo option after opting-in!

Make sure that your browser is connected by heading to Venmo Settings and then to Connect Browsers. If you’re still not seeing the Venmo option, make sure you turn off PayPal OneTouch.
