Venmo is a popular digital wallet app that lets you transfer money between friends and pay for purchases online. The company also offers its own debit card, the Venmo Card, which allows you to spend your balance anywhere Mastercard is accepted. But what if you need to add more funds to your Venmo account? One convenient option is to add cash at Walmart.
Here’s everything you need to know about adding cash to your Venmo Card at Walmart.
Step 1: Check Your Venmo Account Balance
Before heading out to Walmart, make sure you know how much money you have in your Venmo account. Open the app and check your balance by tapping on "☰" in the top-left corner, then selecting "Balance." If you need to transfer money from a linked bank account or credit/debit card first, now is the time to do so. Keep in mind that there may be fees associated with these transfers.
Step 2: Go To A Participating Walmart Location
Not all Walmart stores participate in this service, so it’s important that you go to a store that does. You can use Venmo’s location search feature within the app or website (https://venmo.com/at-walmart/) to find a participating store near you. Once there, head over to one of the checkouts and let the cashier know that you want to add cash to your Venmo Card.
Step 3: Provide Your Information
To add cash at Walmart, you’ll need a few pieces of information:
- Your mobile phone number
- Your Venmo Card PIN
- The amount of money you want to add (you can load up to $500 per day)
The cashier will enter this information into their system and give you instructions on how to complete the transaction.
Step 4: Pay for Your Transaction
There are two ways to pay for adding cash to your Venmo Card at Walmart:
- By using the barcode in the Venmo app: After the cashier has entered your information, open the Venmo app and tap "☰" in the top-left corner, then select "Scan Code." Point your phone’s camera at the barcode on the checkout screen and confirm the amount you want to add. Your account balance will be updated within a few minutes.
- By using cash or a debit card: If you don’t want to use the barcode method, you can also pay with cash or a debit card directly at the checkout. Be sure to get a receipt for your transaction.
Step 5: Wait for Confirmation
After completing your transaction, it may take a few minutes for your account balance to reflect the new addition. You should see a notification in your Venmo app once it’s been updated.
