How to Activate Venmo Card?

Owned by PayPal, Venmo is a popular mobile payment service that allows account holders to easily transfer funds to others through a mobile phone application. However, the condition with Venmo is that both the sender and receiver are living in the US. Venmo primarily targets friends splitting bills, for example for movies, tickets, rent, dinner, etc. If you have got your Venmo credit card recently, you will first need to activate it, and then you can use it for making payments. To know how to activate your Venmo credit card, follow the instructions provided below.

Guide to Activate Venmo Credit Card

As soon as you apply and get a Venmo credit card, you are provided a virtual card number is available to you in your Venmo application. You can use this number to make online purchases, as well as you can request a new virtual number in the application (doing so will deactivate your previous virtual card number). However, it is to be noted that you will need to confirm the last 4 digits of your SSN (Social Security Number) to view the virtual card number, valid through date, and CVV. Once confirmed, you can copy this card number and make purchases online. Until you receive and activate your physical card, your Venmo credit card account might have a lower credit limit. You can check the credit limit in the Venmo app’s  Venmo Credit Card section.

You don’t need to add your Venmo Credit Card account manually to your Venmo payment methods as it gets added automatically. Once added, you can pay for things such as person-to-person payments and purchases with authorized merchants. Just like regular credit cards, the Venmo Credit Card is subject to a 3% standard fee when using it to make person-to-person payments. When you receive your physical Venmo Credit Card, you can find your account number located on the back of the card.

Now to activate your Venmo Credit Card, you will simply need to scan the QR code provided on the front of the card using the camera of your phone. Also, you can use the QR code scanner provided in the Venmo application. Another method that you can use to activate your Venmo credit card is by calling Synchrony Bank at 855 890 6779.
