Venmo Transfer Limit

Venmo transfer limit is set by identity verification status and monitored on a weekly basis. Individuals with an “unverified” account, can send up to USD 999.99 to their bank account each week. Individuals with a “verified” account, can send up to USD 19,999.99 to their bank account each week. However, there is a maximum transfer limit of USD 5,000 per transaction. 

On the other hand, if you are interested in the Venmo payment limits, these are considerably higher. In certain instances, it is possible to obtain a limit of up to USD 60,000 per week via the Venmo app.

However, if you have not completed the identity verification process, you can only spend USD 299.99 per week on the application.

How Do I Find My Venmo Account Transfer Limit?

You can confirm your Venmo account transfer limit by accessing the Venmo payment app and confirming your account status. Account status will determine the specific limits that apply to your account. If your account identity is not yet verified, you can access your account details and select “Identity Verification”.

Importantly, the verification process on Venmo is relatively quick. Within several hours, you will generally receive an additional email that confirms verification or outlines additional documents that you will need to submit to complete the verification process.

As mentioned above, once your identity is verified you will be able to send considerably more money on a weekly basis to your account.

Venmo Weekly Limits

The weekly limits for Venmo range from USD 999.99 to USD 19.999.99, depending on whether your identity is verified with Venmo or not.
