Venmo Joins Braintree

ProductBraintreeVenmoPerformanceCorporate Announcements

On 16 Aug 2012, Venmo was acquired by Braintree. Venmo will operate as a wholly owned subsidiary; our service will remain unaffected, and we will continue to work on providing you with the best way to make and share payments with friends.

We are thrilled. This partnership gives Venmo more resources and we’re going to be able to work with Braintree on creating even more amazing ways to use Venmo (like integrating Venmo as a payment method with awesome Braintree merchants like Github, HotelTonight, Uber, Airbnb, Fab, LevelUp, and many others). For all developers that have been asking for a Venmo API, we’ll have some great tools for you soon!  Stay informed here.

Thank you for being an amazing and supportive community of users, and for helping us get here.
