It is currently available to a few (select) users and will be rolled out completely to US consumers by this Black Friday.

Venmo is an American payments gateway famous for its payment-sharing options which friends and families use to split bills and it is owned by PayPal since 2012.

PayPal announced their partnership last year and now PayPal announced that Amazon is accepting Venmo as a payment option.

Users can also set Venmo as a default payment option as there’s no additional fee for checkout with Venmo and you can also pay directly from your Venmo balance or a linked bank account.

Here’s how to use Venmo as a Payment method on Amazon:

  1. Go to App Store and download Venmo app
  2. Signup and create your free Venmo account
  3. Go to Amazon, add a product to your cart
  4. Click on Buy and Select a payment method
  5. Click on Add a Venmo account
  6. Accept Authorization of your Venmo account with Amazon and pay from it

That’s an easy way to start paying from an app rather than using your credit card or a debit card on Amazon.

Not just this, but some eligible purchases will be covered by Amazon’s A-to-Z Guarantee and as well as Venmo’s Purchase Protection Program which helps you to stay safe while purchasing online.

This could be the best update for payment options on Amazon which one could enjoy and buy more since it is going to provide double guarantees for one purchase.
