Venmo's redesign moves its tabs to a bottom bar, and it's going live for more users

Venmo is introducing new fees, and you're not going to like them

Venmo is a popular user-to-user money transfer service, which gained a lot of ground for being easy to use and essentially free. But ever since PayPal bought the company back in 2013, the writing was on the wall for the first part of that. Soon the latter will start to look more like the former, with a series of increasing fees for some money transfers beginning next month.

Venmo heard you like stories, so it added stories to its app to give you more stories

Venmo heard you like stories, so it added stories to its app to give you more stories

In case you haven't heard, everyone likes stories now. Sure, maybe you don't, but judging by how many apps now carry them as a feature, you're on your own. Everyone from Spotify to Pinterest to Twitter has shown interest in stories in the last few months, to say nothing of old standbys like Snapchat and Instagram. Venmo, the PayPal-owned payment platform that pulls double-duty as a mini social network, has decided to get in on the fun, but not really in the way you might expect.

Venmo, Zelle, PayPal, Cash app, and Google Pay compared: Which is the best money transfer service?

Venmo, Zelle, PayPal, Cash app, and Google Pay compared: Which is the best money transfer service?

Paying and getting paid is easier than ever, but the various apps you can choose to transact with have their upsides and downsides. Picking one can be difficult, and signing up for all of them even more so — especially when it often means convincing friends and family to do so as well. But old school bank ACH transfer tools are for the birds, and cold, hard cash remains a dicey proposition in the current environment. Splitting the bill with cash is also just a pain, and newer peer to peer (P2P) payment apps are so much more convenient that it's truly silly in 2020 not to be using one.
