In addition, the difference between Instant transfers and Standard transfers is that with Instant transfers, the money is directly withdrawn from Venmo, whereas with Standard transfers, the money is transferred to your bank account via ACH. 

Also, instant transfer collects a fee of 0.25%, while the standard transfer does not charge any fees.

What Is the Venmo Withdrawal Limit?

Venmo allows users to withdraw up to $400 per calendar day. It means that if you withdraw $1000 every week, you will only be allowed to withdraw $40,000 per year. You can also withdraw up to $10,000 per month, but you need to pay a service fee of $5.

However, there are some exceptions. For example, if you are under 18 years old, you cannot withdraw more than $100 per month. In addition, if you are withdrawing money from your account, you can withdraw up to $50,000 per year.

If you are withdrawing money from another person’s account, you can withdraw as much as you like, but you will be charged a flat rate of $5 for each transaction.

If you are withdrawing money from a business or organization account, you can withdraw no more than $1,000 per month. However, you can still use Venmo to make payments to other businesses or organizations.

It would help if you did not use that when you exceeded your withdrawal limit. Venmo will automatically deduct $5 from your account for each transaction after reaching your maximum withdrawal limit. So if you reach your maximum limit, you will need to contact customer support to remove the extra fees.

However, you can avoid these charges by choosing one of the following options:

  • Transfer money to yourself instead of someone else. This way, you won’t incur any additional charges.
  • Make small withdrawals rather than large ones.
  • Use Venmo’s free service called Venmo Express, which allows you to transfer up to $10,000 per month.

How Do I Increase My Withdrawal Limit on Venmo?

You can increase your withdrawal limit by contacting customer support. You can call them at 1-855-VENMO (852-6437) or send an email to venmo@venmo.com. They will ask you to provide proof of identity, such as a driver’s license or passport. After this, they will review your request and approve it.

Note that once you reach your maximum withdrawal limit, you will no longer be able to withdraw unless you get permission from Venmo.

How Much Does Venmo Charge for Instant Withdrawal?

The cost of transferring money through Venmo varies depending on the payment method used. If you transfer funds using PayPal, the charges are $0.25 per transaction. On the other hand, if you transfer funds using Apple Pay, the charges are $2.00 per transaction.

The charges vary based on the card issuer for transactions made using credit cards. Some issuers charge a flat rate of $3.95 per transaction, while others charge a percentage rate of 2%. The amount you will be charged depends on how many times you make the same transaction.

For example, if you make 10 withdrawals in a single day, you will be charged $39.50. However, if you make 20 withdrawals in a single day, you will be charged $78.00.

If you are making multiple withdrawals within a short period, you may want to consider paying for a monthly subscription so that you don’t have to worry about the costs.

Instant transfers are fast and take only 30 minutes to complete. But before you start sending money to your friends, you should know that the process is irreversible. Once the money has been sent, it is not retrieved. Also, there is the deduction of a minimum fee of 0.25% and a maximum of15% of the total amount transferred.

Is Venmo Considered a Cash Withdrawal?

Venmo is a peer-to-peer payment platform. You can use it to pay people directly without involving banks or financial institutions. However, you can withdraw your Venmo cash using MasterCard, Visa, Amex, but with an extra fee.

When you transfer money via Venmo, you transfer money to another person’s bank account. When you receive money from your bank account, you technically withdraw it.

It means that you are withdrawing cash from your bank account. In most cases, when you withdraw cash from your bank account, there is no fee involved. However, some banks impose fees on cash withdrawals. For instance, Bank of America charges $5.00 per withdrawal.

How Long Does It Take for My Funds to Be Available?

Once you set up your account, the funds should be available immediately after confirming the transaction. It usually takes around one hour for the funds to be available in your bank account.

However, it could take longer than expected due to network delays. Contact customer service to find out more information about how long it takes for your funds to arrive.

As discussed above, if you use the instant transfer to your bank, the process is immediate, but it could take up to 30 minutes for the funds to appear in your bank account. It is because of the verification process which requires the recipient to verify their identity. On the other hand, the standard transfer via ACH (Automated Clearing House) takes 3 business days to reach your bank account.
