Add money transfers from a bank typically take 3-5 business days to reach your Venmo balance, and the funds from that transfer won’t be available until it completes.

Keep in mind that you might have the option to add money from your debit card.

If the money doesn’t arrive in your Venmo account after 5 full business days, please contact Venmo Support.

I tried to add money with my bank account and got declined

Before you can use a bank account to add money to Venmo, it needs to be verified. If you’ve already verified your bank account on Venmo, there are a few other reasons why your attempt to add money may be declined:

  • Your bank returned a notice of insufficient funds for your requested transfer. This information may not be up to date, so please try later or use a debit card instead.
  • You’ve hit your transfer limit for the rolling week. Learn more about Venmo transfer limits.
  • The transfer attempt triggered an automated security flag, resulting in a decline. There isn’t a way to override these declines, so you may need to try again later or explore other options.
