Venmo temporarily halts instant money transfers


Did you need a friend to pay you back on Venmo as soon as humanly possible? You might have to twiddle your thumbs for a little while. Venmo has temporarily pulled its instant transfer feature in order to make a "few changes" to the service.

Venmo increases fees on instant money transfers


Effective November 6th, Venmo patrons who use Instant Transfer to move money from their Venmo accounts to their debit cards will notice increased service fees. Instead of a flat $.25 per transfer, Instant Transfer fees will be set at 1% of the total sum. The sliding fee scale is a change that patrons who move large sums of money will want to take notice of. For example, a $50 transfer will now cost you $.50 in fees, while a $1000 transfer will short you ten bucks. The convenient Instant Transfer option, which is available 24 hours a day 365 days a year and only takes about thirty minutes to complete is quite appealing.
