It was announced back in July that Uber will soon be able to accept Venmo as a payment method for rides and Uber Eats. It has taken a couple of months for the payment service to be accepted by Uber. The ride-hailing service has now started sending out emails to users informing them that they will be able to pay for Uber with Venmo.
Venmo support is now live for both Uber and Uber Eats. The emails that the company has been sending out to users confirm that they can now use this payment method to pay for their rides and their Uber Eats orders.
Setting it up is simple enough. Just link your Venmo account to Uber from within the latter’s app. Doing this will add the account to the Uber Eats app as well, if you have it configured with the same account.
In the event that your Venmo balance isn’t enough to pay for the entire ride or the full order, a different payment method linked to the account can be used to cover the difference without any additional fees.
For those who are unaware, Venmo is limited to the United States which means that this new payment method can only be utilized by those based in the United States.
