Expand your fundraising audience by offering Venmo as a payment option.

Do I have to link my Venmo account to receive Venmo donations?

Nope! All fundraisers on Givebutter have Venmo automatically built-in as a payment option for donors, with no setup necessary. 🎉

Venmo donations are treated like any other donation on Givebutter and can be withdrawn directly from your Givebutter dashboard along with all other funds raised.

Can I donate directly via the Venmo app?

No. The only way to donate using Venmo is through a Givebutter campaign link, which is compatible with all mobile web browsers. You must be using the native browser on your device.

Why isn't Venmo showing up as a payment option?

  • On mobile devices, you'll need to access the Campaign page from your device's default browser in order for Venmo to appear as a payment option.

    • For iOS devices, use Safari. For Android devices, use Chrome.

  • You must have the Venmo application downloaded on your device.

  • You must be logged in to Venmo on your device.

  • You must have a valid source of funds connected to your Venmo account.
