Pros

Makes for easy transfers in or out of my bank account and customer service is AMAZING. Customer Service is also available through chat, and I LOVE that.
I love Venmo and would recommend it to anyone who needs an easy way to send or request money. I have found it to be more user friendly than PayPal and other similar products.
The app is super easy to navigate and also is great for paying friends, because there is no fees like with paypal. The app is super inexpensive and an even be completely free if used a certain way.

Pros

I like that it is straight forward and easy to use, plus they offer additional products like financing and capital advances that are useful for growing businesses.
I love the simplicity of the software. I love being able to accept credit card or debit card payments directly on my phone with the small noninvasive card reader that i attach to my phone.
I love this software, our employees love it too because it gives them better tips at the end of the day.

Cons

It is still hard to find our business even with the exact handle and there is no way to retract a payment if sent to wrong person. That's a little nerve racking if a client gets our @name wrong.
I understand from security reasons, but it is annoying. Apparently it is possible now, but has been a pain to figure out.
There is a potential of 'abuse' in that the transactions are irreversible. Also, the default setting is 'public.

Cons

I do not think I have have anything I do not like about square payments. I guess if you put in the wrong email that can be annoying but that more user error.
I had to walk around & often ended up some distance away from the customer. It was awkward because I had to have their card with me & this probably made the customer feel uneasy.
It also bothered me that they charge more to type in the card numbers when you’re unable to swipe the card in person.

Ideal Payment Processing Software for Small Businesses

Reviewed 3 years ago

Perfect for small businesses and better than using a square device for accepting payments.

Pros

The app is just great. UI/UX, how they have defined different user personas and the ease of making a transaction is fantastic. Super quick and easy to transact with any third party, strong authentication mechanisms and auto-credit to the account on file. Making and receiving payments is the easiest I've seen, and much better than zelle, or Paypal. User support is fantastic and there have been instances where I was fully refunded back when goods/services were not delivered as agreed upon.

Cons

It would be good to look at the credit worthiness/score and how reliable they are for their services. Currently there's no way to know (other than star ratings and sparse reviews at times). Multi-lingual capabilities would be helpful too, especially when you are transacting with non-english speaking partners.

Feels incomplete

Reviewed 3 years ago

I use it for receiving payments from clients, where credit card fees would be damaging for the budged.

Pros

No fees for payments. That means it is cheaper being paid there than for example on paypal, square or many other competitors.

Cons

It is very vocal and public about the payments you do or receive. For many causes it is a good thing. Like collection for candidates or public stuff like that. But for privacy sake, it tells everyone how much do you received, when, from whom in a facebook like timeline... I really hate that.

Best mobile payments app

Reviewed 4 years ago

As-is, it's the best peer-to-peer payments app with the majority of the market share.

Pros

This is a reoccurring theme for the best products - simplicity, performance, ease of use. Venmo ticks all the boxes even though it's not the first to the party. It amps up this stodgy industry by adding social elements. However I use it because most people are on it and it works well. Setup is quick, just link a bank account and you are ready to pay for that hot yoga class.

Cons

Needs to expand to other markets. No online payment, no in-store payments. They really need to push stores to accept Venmo to make things more convenient. If they don't innovate, other competitors (Apple, Square) can erode their market share.

Easy money transferring app

Reviewed 5 years ago

Overall, I enjoy Venmo. It's extremely easy to use and it's super convenient during a night out with friends.

Pros

There are many positives about using Venmo. First of all, the app is free. It's extremely easy and convenient to make payments or request payments from others. It also has been a lifesaver for me on numerous occasions when I've forgotten my wallet. Also, since downloading Venmo, dinner with friends is much more seamless. Instead of requesting that the server split the bill 3+ ways, my friends and I can instantaneously transfer money to each other without being a burden to the restaurant. I also love that they offer their own debit card. As a money-saving hack, I'll transfer a certain amount after every paycheck so I can keep track of my spending for the month.

Cons

While I love Venmo, I also use Square Cash because of its "no-frills" aspect. While Venmo does allow you to make payments privately, I find the whole social aspect of it a bit invasive. I'm honestly shocked that people often refer to Venmo as a social media platform.

It's a very good platform! A very convenient and secure way to make payments from pier to pier or in online purchases, fees are good for some features not too good for others. So just make sure you revise your fees before pressing the send button. A lot of people use it and in my opinion it's a must have

Venmo makes payments convenient and easy, low fees for credit/debit cards and it's free to send money from a bank account or debit card

Great, but still could use some additional features

Pros

Easy to use, I love paying my vendors or. guests refunds using Venmo. I like that you can easily find people using Venmo, get receipts, pay for goods and services. It makes splitting payments between people so much easier. I no longer have to use checks, or have a hard time using Bank apps for payments. Paypal charges a fee, so this is much more user friendly and easier on the wallet with less or no fees.

Cons

I wish I could make payments with a Savings account rather than only a checking account. I'd love to be able to create reports of payments, or have reoccurring payments.

I recommend Venmo to anyone who is seeking a simple and accurate system to collect payments such as rental payments to service provider payments.

Pros

Venmo is a great tool for tracking and collecting payments. My tenants and I use Venmo to process and track monthly rental payments. Venmo allows payments to be processes quickly with ease. The system is easy to use and provides a history of payments. You can track dates along with payment amounts easily with Venmo.

Quick, easy payments or requests for payments increases efficiency and saves valuable time.

Pros

The ability to transfer funds quickly and efficiently makes life so much easier than relying on having cash on hand. A couple easy clicks and you are done. The ability to either keep a balance in Venmo or transfer from your bank account is also a valuable feature.

Cons

Finding people can be challenging at times if they do not know there user name. I have found it difficult at times to find the correct person I wish to transfer money too. However once you do find them it is a very easy process to transfer or request money.

A Decent Functional Service

Reviewed 3 years ago

Square Payments is functional and a really good piece of software for freelance, very small businesses, and people just breaking into an entrepenuership. I ended up transitioning to Venmo because while the fees for Square are very small, I found Venmo more efficient for payments from my clients. Square only takes large credit/debit cards as payment, but I wanted to be able to allow other types too which Venmo allows.

Pros

Easy to set up You can use it on your tablet, phone or computer The card reader is nice, but you can also enter card information onto the system Funds move in about 2-3 days, and you can expedite them for a small fee Save card information for returning customers/clients

Cons

There is a small fee but it is small. It only takes large credit cards and debit cards. None of this is too bad though

I highly recommend using square. It is a must for small-medium sized businesses

Pros

Venmo is an amazing application. My company uses it alot for multiple credit card transactions. we would be lost without it.

Cons

I wish the service fees were not as much as they were. I would use square more often if it was a lesser transaction charge

Nice app for money transfer

Reviewed 3 years ago

It's good software but it's totally depends on individuals' preferences

Pros

Good and quick to send money to friends or family members. You can see the listed people by syncing contacts. Bank set up is easy and quick.

Cons

Need to improve software design can't be friendly as PayPal or Venmo. Need to improve feature and friends search experience

Great for mobile businesses

Reviewed 2 years ago

It’s been a great addition to my business . Easy to use and looks professional since most people have heard of it.

Pros

It’s a great alternative when clients don’t have cash or venmo. I love that I can make a price list and save it.

Cons

The credit card swiper can be a bit hard to use when not holding it super still

Overall Great

Reviewed 2 years ago

I really enjoy it and love that we have it as an option for our customers!!

Pros

Its easy to use and great for customers to receive payments with Credit Card when they dont have things like PayPal and Venmo

Cons

It was very confusing finding how to transfer the money into our bank account once we received payments, it took longer than I would have liked. I also never found how to do it on the app, I had to use a computer.

Great for collecting a payment

Reviewed 4 years ago

I liked using this when clients did not have access to other ways to pay.

Pros

This was helpful when paying other vendors or clients paying for sessions when they did not have venmo or cashapp. It's easy to use with credit cards

Cons

The fees are a bit high but other apps also charge fees as well. It's about the same fee cost. I liked being able to give my clients this option for payment.

I have since quit using Square.

Pros

It seemed like a good option for payment process for my side business.

HOWEVER... I have found I like Paypal and venmo apps much more. I also do not like the fee that is charged when transferring to bank.

Easy to use and Serves it's purpose!

Reviewed a year ago

Overall, it does exactly what it's meant to do and also provides protection for customers so there's no worry that your information is going to get stolen or hacked into.

Pros

I like the convenience of this. Super easy to suggest this payment method when a customer doesn't have cash, or prefers card payment over something like venmo or paypal.

Cons

Honestly, I didn't find anything that I didn't like about Square payments. It's easy, convenient and affordable.
