Once available, paying with Venmo on Amazon is easy to set up and use for your purchases:

  • You will select “Select a payment method” and then tap “Add a Venmo account.”
  • This will open the Venmo app, where you can allow Amazon to charge Venmo for future purchases.
  • Next, an Amazon confirmation screen will be displayed, where you can also choose to set Venmo as your default payment method for future Amazon purchases.
  • You can always change your preference by going to “Settings” and then clicking “Connected Businesses” in the Venmo App.

If you don’t have a Venmo account, download the Venmo app from the Google Play or iOS app stores.
