How to Transfer Money from Venmo to Bank?

Venmo is a convenient way to send and receive money quickly. But what if you need to transfer funds from your Venmo balance to your bank account? Here’s a detailed guide on how to do that:
Two Transfer Methods
Venmo offers two ways to transfer money to your bank account, each with different speeds and potential fees:
Standard Transfer (Free, 1-3 Business Days): This is the slower but free option. Your money will typically take 1-3 business days to appear in your bank account.
Instant Transfer (Fee Applies, Typically Within 30 Minutes): If you need the money in your bank account right away, you can use the instant transfer option. However, a fee of 1.75% (minimum $0.25, maximum $25) will be applied to the transfer amount.
Before You Transfer
Ensure you have a verified bank account linked to your Venmo account. Unverified accounts may not be eligible for transfers.
Check your Venmo balance. You can only transfer money that’s currently available in your Venmo account.
Steps to Transfer Money
Open the Venmo app and log in.
Tap the “Me” tab. This is usually located in the bottom right corner of the app.
Tap on “Transfer to Bank” or “Manage Balance” (depending on your app version).
Select your preferred transfer method: Standard Transfer (1-3 business days) or Instant Transfer (within 30 minutes). Be aware of the fee associated with instant transfers.
Enter the transfer amount.
Choose the bank account you want to transfer the money to. If you have multiple linked accounts, select the desired one.
Review the transfer details carefully. This includes the amount, transfer method, and destination bank account.
Tap “Transfer” to initiate the transfer.
Confirmation and Tracking
You’ll receive a confirmation notification from Venmo once the transfer is initiated.
For standard transfers, you won’t see the money reflected in your bank account immediately. It typically takes 1-3 business days.
Instant transfers should appear in your bank account within 30 minutes.
Important Notes
You can only transfer money to a bank account that you’ve previously linked and verified within your Venmo app.
Venmo may impose limits on how much money you can transfer at once. These limits may vary depending on your account and transfer history.
Standard transfers are generally processed within 1-3 business days, but this timeframe can be affected by your bank’s processing times.
Additional Tips
Consider the urgency of your transfer. If you don’t need the money immediately, the standard transfer option is the most cost-effective.
Be aware of the fees associated with instant transfers. If you frequently need to transfer money quickly, it might be wise to plan ahead and utilize standard transfers whenever possible.
Keep your Venmo app updated to ensure you have access to the latest features and security measures.
By following these steps and understanding the different transfer options, you can easily move your money from Venmo to your bank account whenever needed.
