Venmo payments are accepted Now, just in time for the holiday season

While Amazon’s most large sales event, Prime Day Part 2, may have just ended, the corporation is already planning for its next big sale. Amazon has added Venmo as a payment option in anticipation of Black Friday, which is exactly one month away.

“There’s no better time to give consumers payment choices that are quick, easy to use, and secure than during the hectic Christmas season,” says Max Bardon, vice president of Amazon Worldwide Payments. Our mission is to accommodate the interests of each and every one of our customers, whether that means accepting cash, allowing customers to make interest-free payments, or accepting payments via Venmo.

Amazon’s website and mobile app will have the new feature available to customers starting this week. There appears to be a new option to incorporate Venmo to the Amazon checkout process, allowing users to link their Venmo accounts with their Amazon accounts.

After Venmo is integrated, users can set it as their primary payment option. Amazon’s A to Z Guarantee will apply to all purchases, while Venmo’s Purchase Protection will repay customers in the event that something goes wrong with their item.

Since many individuals already use Venmo to send money to their friends and family, this adds a convenient payment option for Black Friday buyers Now. Venmo, which will first be made accessible just to U.S. customers, will gradually roll out to buyers in time for Black Friday if it doesn’t already appear for you immediately.
