Venmo has been gaining popularity with the number of consumers adopting it for their daily payments. With its increasing penetration, the various popular food chains and restaurants have taken note and have started adding options for their customers to pay through Venmo.

For context, it is also important to note that there are multiple ways to pay using Venmo.

Ways to Pay with Venmo for Food

There are multiple ways to pay at a restaurant and order food online using Venmo:

  1. Using the Venmo Debit Card (Most widely accepted option)You can pay in-store by swiping the card over the POS machine or add it as a payment method in the Food Outlet App when ordering online
  2. Using the Venmo Wallet -Scan QR Code (Available only at selected food outlets)
  3. Linking Venmo wallet as a payment method in the Food Delivery App or Food Chain App (which supports direct linking)

Most food chains accept Venmo Card as a way of payment. While some food chains even offer the option to pay with a scan using Venmo QR Code or allow linking the Venmo app as a payment method on their own apps.
