    I've had 2 people in the past week if they could Venmo me to pay for the advertising I sell on the Facebook groups I Admin.

    I realize I am not the swiftest boat in the fleet but I had no idea what that was the first time and figured it was an anomaly but the second time made me realize I need to step up my game.

    It's a Paypal thing of course.

    Are any of you getting that request?

    I wouldn't use it.
    I heard they can do chargebacks really easily and it is always successful.
    Venmo is for friend to friend transactions which is why they make it so easy to do chargebacks since friends won't scam each other.

    Sounds like those two got banned from PayPal.

    Venmo's descdiption states that, "Venmo is a free digital wallet that lets you make and share payments with friends. You can easily split the bill, cab fare, or much more".

    One of them actually paid via PP and the other paid using a credit card.

    I am sure that they initially did not think I run things through an actual company so perhaps that is why they thought to do it as a friends thing.
