How to Transfer Money from Venmo to PayPal
While you can't link your Venmo to PayPal and transfer funds between both accounts directly, you can still transfer money from Venmo to PayPal using your bank account as a bridge.
To do so:
1. Add Your Bank Account to Venmo
The first thing you'll want to do is to link your bank account to your Venmo account. If you have already done so, you can skip these steps otherwise, here is how to add your bank account to Venmo.
- Open your Venmo app.
- Tap your profile or initials to go to the "Me" tab.
- Go to the "Wallet" section.
- Tap "Add a bank or card..." and then select "Bank".
- Select your preferred verification method.
2. Transfer Money from Venmo to Your Bank Account
The next thing you will have to do is to withdraw funds from your Venmo account directly to your bank.
Venmo lets you transfer money to your bank account in two ways. You can transfer funds using the standard transfer option which will take up to 3 business days or using the instant transfer option which will be done instantly.
However, the instant transfer will cost you a fee of 1.5% (with a minimum fee of $0.25 and a maximum fee of $15) of the total amount to be transferred.
Instant transfers are only possible with U.S. bank accounts or Visa/Mastercard debit cards that support the service (like Visa Fast Funds or Mastercard Send).
By adding your bank account or credit card to your Venmo account, you may see if it is eligible. When you try to make an instant transfer, your bank account or debit card is offered as a payment option but greyed out. This means that your bank does not currently participate in an instant transfer service.

- Go to the "You" tab by tapping the profile icon.
- Select the "Add or Transfer" button located just below your profile picture.

- Finally, tap "Transfer".
3. Add Your Bank Account to PayPal
Next, you'll have to link the bank account to which you transferred funds from your Venmo account to your PayPal account. You can do this from the "Wallet" section of your PayPal account.
To add a bank account to PayPal:
- Log in to your PayPal account.
- Go to "Wallet."
- Click "Link a bank."
- Search for your bank or select it from the list.
- You can link your bank instantly by entering your bank login details. If the instant option isn't available, enter your bank account details manually and click "Agree and Link."
