See Section 21 (Arbitration) below.IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT PROCEDURES FOR OPENING A NEW CARD ASSOCIATED WITH A VENMO ACCOUNT. To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens a Card associated with a Venmo Account. What this means for you: When you open a Card associated with a Venmo Account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth, Social Security number, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see a copy of your driver’s license or other identifying documents.The preceding information and documentation and results of any verification procedures will be shared by Issuer with Venmo, and may also be used per their respective privacy policies (the Venmo Privacy Policy and the Issuer’s privacy policy, available at shall be referred to collectively as the “Program Privacy Policies”). By agreeing to this Agreement, you will be acknowledging and agreeing to the Program Privacy Policies.If you falsify, misrepresent, or fail to provide requested information, we and/or Venmo may refuse to approve your request for the Card, cancel any of your previously issued Card(s), and/or restrict and/or close your PayPal and/or Venmo Account.IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT MAKING TRANSACTIONS WITH YOUR VENMO ACCOUNT. Your transactions made using Venmo and the Card are subject to review and can be delayed or frozen if Venmo or the Issuer identifies an issue, which may impact your Venmo Account balance. Venmo and the Issuer reserve the right to restrict or delay your access to funds which are suspected of being tied to illicit or illegal activity. In addition, such funds may potentially be subject to investigation by one or more federal law enforcement agencies.
  1. Card. The Card gives you the ability to access funds held in your Venmo Account.
  2. Activation. You must activate the Card and complete the activation process, including setting a Personal Identification Number (“PIN”), before it may be used. Refer to Section 6 (Personal Identification Number) for more details on setting a PIN. You can activate the Card through the Venmo app. For your security, you will need to provide personal information in order for your identity to be verified and for completion of the activation process.
  3. Your representations and warranties. By activating the Card or by retaining, using or authorizing the use of it, you represent and warrant to us that: (i) you are at least 18 years of age (or older if you reside in a jurisdiction where the majority age is older); (ii) you are a U.S. citizen or legal alien residing in the fifty (50) states of the United States (“U.S.”) or the District of Columbia; (iii) you have provided us with a verifiable U.S. street address (not a P.O. Box); (iv) the personal information you provide to us in connection with the Card is true, correct and complete; (v) you received a copy of this Agreement and agree to be bound by and to comply with its terms; and (vi) you accept the Card.
  4. Using the Card.
    1. Cash Access. With your PIN, the Card may be used to obtain cash at any Automated Teller Machine (“ATM”) in the U.S. displaying the Mastercard®, Cirrus®, PULSE®, or MoneyPass® acceptance marks, subject to your applicable daily cash withdrawal limit. The Card cannot be used at international ATMs. Fees may apply; see Section 5 (Venmo Mastercard Fees) for details. If given the option, select "Checking Account" when using an ATM. MoneyPass Network ATMs are not available in all areas, including the U.S. Virgin Islands (go to for a MoneyPass ATM locator). ATM owner-operators may impose their own fees and lower limits on cash withdrawals. All ATM transactions are treated as cash withdrawal transactions and subject to your daily cash withdrawal limit. You may use your PIN at any Point of Sale (“POS”) device, as permissible by a merchant that bears the Maestro® or PULSE® acceptance marks, and subject to your daily purchase limit. Each time you use the Card, you authorize the Issuer to reduce the value available in your Venmo Account balance by the amount of the transaction and any applicable fees and to automatically Reload your account if you have enabled this feature, as described in Section 4.3 (Automatic Reload for Purchases; Authorization).
    2. Card Limits. Venmo may, at its discretion, place limits on the number or total dollar value of purchases, cash withdrawals, and/or Reloads that you may make with the Card. You will be notified of any change in the manner provided by applicable law prior to the effective date, and the limits will be able to be viewed on Venmo’s Help Center here. Card limits are subject to periodic review and may be changed based on your Venmo Account history, activity, and other factors, including but not limited to your Card activity. Venmo retains sole discretion to apply and change limits.
    3. Automatic Reload for Purchases; Authorization.
      1. Transactions made with the Card are funded solely by your Venmo Account balance. To ensure your Venmo Account balance is sufficient to cover purchase transactions you make with the Card, Venmo may offer you the ability to automatically add funds to your Venmo Account balance (“Reload”) by transferring funds from your designated, linked funding source (your “Reload Method”) whenever the Reload feature is turned on and your available Venmo Account balance is less than the final purchase amount. We get the final purchase amount (and initiate a Reload, as needed) once the merchant captures the purchase, which is generally within 1-5 business days after you first swipe your Card, but it can take up to 30 calendar days. At that point, if you do not have enough funds in your Venmo Account balance to cover your purchase, and Reloads were enabled when you swiped your Card, we will transfer funds from your Reload Method. Venmo reserves the right to not offer you the ability to Reload and to restrict the types of linked funding sources (e.g., bank account, debit card, credit card) you can use to Reload your Venmo Account balance. Venmo may, at its sole discretion, place limits on the number or total dollar value of Reloads that may be initiated by Card purchases. For those limits, please see Venmo’s Help Center here. These limits may change from time to time in Venmo’s sole discretion. If the ability to Reload is offered to you, you may designate a Reload Method and toggle the Reload feature ‘on’ or ‘off’ in your Venmo Account settings.
      2. Venmo cannot Reload your Venmo Account balance for ATM or over the counter withdrawals or cash back with purchase transactions. Any use of your Card to withdraw funds that exceeds your available Venmo Account balance will be declined.
      3. Venmo establishes a set, default dollar amount of $10 that is used when a Reload is triggered (the “Reload Increment”). Venmo may offer you the ability to select an alternate Reload Increment. The Reload Increment (or a multiple thereof, as necessary) will be transferred from your Reload Method to your Venmo Account balance each time a Reload is required to complete a Card purchase. To the extent multiple Reloads are required to complete a purchase, Venmo will Reload your Venmo Account balance with a multiple of the Reload Increment.Examples: Single ReloadYou have $25 in your Venmo Account balance and attempt to make a $30 purchase using the Card. Your Reload Increment is $10. Since the purchase amount exceeds your Venmo Account balance by $5, an automatic Reload for the Reload Increment of $10 is triggered. This Reload brings your Venmo Account balance to $35 and allows you to complete the $30 purchase, leaving $5 in your Venmo Account balance. Your Reload Method statement should show a corresponding $10 transfer to Venmo.Multiple ReloadsYour Venmo Account balance is $5 and you attempt to make a $100 purchase using the Card. Your Reload Increment is $10. Since the purchase amount exceeds your current Venmo Account balance by $95, an automatic Reload is triggered. A single Reload of $10, however, would not allow you to complete the transaction. Instead, the Reload will be for a multiple of the Reload Increment necessary to complete the purchase. In this case, it would take 10 Reloads of the $10 Reload Increment ($10 x 10 = $100) to complete the purchase.Venmo will combine the 10 Reloads into a single $100 Reload, bringing your Venmo Account balance to $105. This allows you to complete the $100 purchase and leaves $5 in your Venmo Account balance. Your Reload Method statement will show a corresponding $100 transfer to Venmo.
      4. By using the Card when Reloads are enabled, you hereby authorize Venmo to automatically debit your Reload Method for the Reload Increment (or multiples thereof) as necessary to Reload your Venmo Account balance to complete any purchase made with the Card. You further agree that once a Reload transfer from your Reload Method has been initiated, you will be unable to cancel the transfer and Venmo may resubmit any Reload transfer that is returned for insufficient or uncollected funds or that is returned for any other reason, except as otherwise provided by the Automated Clearing House (ACH) rules or applicable law. You may be subject to third-party fees, such as insufficient fund fees, reversal fees, or ACH insufficient fund fees that your financial institution may charge if your Reload transfer is rejected. IF YOU ARE AWARE YOU DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH FUNDS IN YOUR VENMO ACCOUNT BALANCE TO COMPLETE A CARD PURCHASE, YOU SHOULD CONFIRM THAT YOUR RELOAD METHOD CONTAINS FUNDS SUFFICIENT TO COVER THE TRANSACTION, INCLUDING RELOADS, BEFORE USING THE CARD AND UNTIL THE MERCHANT CAPTURES THE PURCHASE. THIS WILL HELP YOU AVOID THIRD PARTY OVERDRAFT OR OTHER FEES YOUR BANK MAY CHARGE.
      5. If you delete your Reload Method from Venmo or turn off the Reload feature, Venmo will be unable to Reload your Venmo Account balance and any Card purchase that exceeds your available Venmo Account balance will be declined.
    4. Split Tender Transactions. Some merchants do not allow split transactions, i.e., where you use the Card as partial payment for goods and services and pay the remainder of the balance with another form of legal tender. If you wish to conduct a split transaction and it is permitted by the merchant, you must tell the merchant to charge to the Card the amount you wish to use from your Venmo Account balance, subject to the amount of funds available in your Venmo Account balance and applicable limits. You must then arrange to pay the difference using another payment method. Some merchants may require payment for the remaining balance in cash. If you fail to inform the merchant that you would like to complete a split transaction prior to using the Card, the Card may be declined.
    5. Authorization Holds. When you use your Card to purchase goods or services or to make a cash back withdrawal transaction, the merchant may attempt to obtain preauthorization for the transaction. If the merchant makes such a request, a “hold” is placed on your Venmo Account balance for the amount of the preauthorization request (which may vary in some cases from the amount of the actual purchase, depending on the merchant or purchase type), until the merchant sends the final payment amount of your purchase, or for up to thirty (30) days, even if you fail to make the purchase. During the hold period, you may not have access to the preauthorized amount in your Venmo Account. Neither Venmo nor Issuer will be responsible if any transactions are not completed because of the hold. If the preauthorization request varies from the amount of the actual transaction, the actual transaction amount will be debited from your Venmo Account, even if this results in your Venmo Account balance becoming negative. You remain responsible for any negative balances in your Venmo Account.
      1. If you use the Card at an automated fuel dispenser (“pay at the pump”), the transaction may be preauthorized for an amount up to $100.00. If the Card is declined, but you have sufficient funds available in your Venmo Account, you should use the Card to pay for the purchase inside with the cashier.
      2. If you use the Card at a restaurant, a hotel, for a car rental purchase, or for similar purchases, the transaction may be preauthorized for the purchase amount plus up to 20% to ensure there are sufficient funds available to cover tips or incidental expenses incurred.
      You do not have the right to stop payment on any purchase or payment transaction originated by use of the Card. You may not make preauthorized regular payments using the Card.
    6. Card Not Present Transactions. If you use the 16-digit Card number without presenting the Card in person (such as for a mail order, telephone, or internet purchase), the legal effect will be the same as if you used the Card itself. For security reasons, the amount or number of such transactions you may make may be limited. You may not use the Card for illegal gambling or any other illegal transaction.
    7. Foreign Transactions. The Card may only be used to conduct transactions within the 50 United States, District of Columbia and U.S. Territories (Puerto Rico, Guam, Northern Marianas, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and American Samoa). The Card cannot be used to conduct international transactions, including, without limitation, transactions conducted on international merchant websites or mobile applications accessible within the United States.
    8. Venmo Account Balance/Periodic Statements Alternative. You are responsible for keeping track of your available Venmo Account balance. Merchants generally will not be able to determine your available balance. It is important to know your available Venmo Account balance before making any transaction. You may obtain information about the amount of funds available in your Venmo Account by using the Venmo app or visiting the Venmo website. This information, along with a 12-month history of Card transactions, is available by logging into your Venmo Account on You also have a right to obtain a 24-month written history of Card transactions by sending an email to or by calling 1-855-204-4090.

Any attempted ATM or over the counter withdrawal or cash back withdrawal, including any fees charged by us, Venmo, or by an individual ATM operator, that exceeds your available Venmo Account balance will be declined.MoneyPass ATM Withdrawal $0.00ATM Domestic Withdrawal Fee* $2.50 per ATM withdrawal within U.S. (plus any amounts charged by the ATM owner).Over the Counter Withdrawal Fee $3.00 per signature withdrawal if a signature is required to obtain cash.*If you use an ATM for any transaction, including a balance inquiry, you may be charged a fee by the ATM owner even if you do not complete a withdrawal. This ATM fee is a third-party fee amount assessed by the individual ATM operator only and is not assessed by us. This ATM fee amount will be deducted from your Venmo Account balance.
  6. Personal Identification Number. The PIN is a security code, which is designed to protect the Card against unauthorized use. You choose the PIN when you activate the Card. The PIN provides enhanced security for the Card and may be used when making transactions with the Card. It is your electronic signature. Since the PIN is for security purposes, you should memorize it and it should not be disclosed to anyone. You should not write or keep the PIN with the Card. When entering the PIN, be sure it cannot be observed by others and do not enter the PIN into any terminal that appears to be modified or suspicious. You can change the PIN at any time through the settings on the Venmo app. A temporary hold can be placed on the Card if the PIN has been compromised or if the Card is lost or stolen. Maintaining the security of the PIN and Card is your responsibility. If you believe anyone has gained unauthorized access to the PIN, change your PIN using the Venmo app and contact Customer Service immediately using the contact information found below in Section 18 (Customer Service).
  7. Authorized Users. You are responsible for all authorized transactions initiated and fees incurred by use of the Card.

If you believe the Card has been lost or stolen, immediately disable it through the Venmo app and contact Venmo (you may also reenable the Card using the Venmo app. Venmo may cancel any Card that has been disabled for sixty (60) calendar days or longer.). Telephoning is the best way to minimize your possible losses.

You may also email Venmo at We may suspend or cancel your Card and/or corresponding Venmo Account in the event of excessive reports of Card loss or theft. Under Mastercard Rules, you will not be held responsible for unauthorized transactions if you have used reasonable care in protecting your Card from loss or theft and you have promptly reported to Venmo when you knew that your Card was lost or stolen. Zero Liability does not apply to Mastercard payment cards that are used for commercial purposes, or anonymous prepaid cards (until such time as the identity of the cardholder has been registered with us). In the event that Mastercard Zero Liability does not apply, if you notify Venmo within two (2) business days after you learn of any unauthorized transactions, you can lose no more than $50.00 if someone used your Card without your permission. If you do not notify Venmo within two (2) business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your Card and Venmo can prove that we could have stopped someone from using your Card without your permission if you had promptly notified Venmo, you could lose as much as $500.00.
    2. Also, if you become aware of and/or your statement shows transactions you did not make, notify Venmo at once following the procedures stated in Section 16 (Information About Your Right to Dispute Errors). If you do not notify Venmo within sixty (60) days after you become aware of the transaction and/or after the statement was made available to you, you may not get back any value you lost after the sixty (60) days if Venmo can prove that we could have stopped someone from taking the value if you had notified Venmo in time. If a good reason (such as a long trip or hospital stay) kept you from telling us, Venmo will extend the time periods. If the Card has been lost or stolen, the Card will be blocked to keep losses down and a replacement card will be sent to you.

  16. Information About Your Right to Dispute Errors.
    1. Protection for Unauthorized Transactions and Other Errors. When an unauthorized transaction or other error occurs in the Venmo Account, including unauthorized transactions that occur because the Card has been lost or stolen, Venmo will cover you for the full amount of every eligible unauthorized transaction or other error as long as you follow the procedures discussed in Section 16.2 (Notification Requirements) or the Venmo User Agreement, as appropriate (the “Protection Policy”).An “Unauthorized Transaction” is an error that occurs when funds are sent from your Venmo Account without your authorization and/or you did not benefit from the transaction. For example, if someone steals the Card and PIN, and makes a withdrawal with the Card, an Unauthorized Transaction has occurred. If you give the Card to a person with permission to use it, you are responsible for all transactions conducted by on the person even if they make more transactions than you authorized, unless you notified Venmo that transactions by that person are no longer authorized.“Other Errors” occur when funds are either incorrectly debited from the Venmo Account or incorrectly credited to the Venmo Account, or when transactions are incorrectly posted to the Venmo Account. Other Errors covered by Venmo are limited to the following: if you make a payment and it is incorrectly debited from the Venmo Account; if an incorrect amount is credited to the Venmo Account; if a transaction is missing from or not properly identified in the Venmo Account statement; if you receive an incorrect amount of money at an ATM; or if there is a computational or mathematical error by Venmo.You may request documentation or information regarding the Venmo Account or a transaction(s) to determine whether an Unauthorized Transaction or Other Error exists by contacting Venmo at or calling 855-204-4090.

    3. Processing Errors. Venmo will rectify any processing error Venmo discovers. If the error results in your receipt of less than the correct amount to which you are entitled, your Venmo Account will be credited for the difference.
