How to Add a Second Email to Venmo

Are you looking to add a second email to your Venmo account? Maybe you want to use a separate email address for different transactions or simply have a backup option. Whatever the reason, adding a second email to Venmo is a simple process that can be done in just a few steps.

1. Open the Venmo App

To add a second email to Venmo, start by opening the Venmo app on your mobile device. Make sure you have the latest version of the app installed.

2. Go to Settings

Once you're in the Venmo app, navigate to the "Settings" section. You can usually find it by tapping on your profile picture or the three horizontal lines in the top-left corner of the screen.

3. Select "Emails"

In the Settings menu, look for the "Emails" option and tap on it. This will take you to the email settings page where you can manage your email addresses.

4. Add a New Email

On the email settings page, you'll see your current email address associated with your Venmo account. To add a second email, tap on the "Add New Email" button and enter the new email address you want to add.

5. Verify the New Email

After entering the new email address, Venmo will send a verification email to that address. Check your inbox and follow the instructions in the email to verify the new email address. Once verified, the new email will be added to your Venmo account.

6. Set a Default Email

Back on the email settings page, you can choose which email address should be the default for your Venmo account. This is the email address that will be used for notifications and other communication from Venmo.

7. Done!

That's it! You've successfully added a second email to your Venmo account. You can now use either email address to receive payments, send payments, and manage your Venmo transactions.

Get the Most Out of Venmo with Multiple Emails

Adding a second email to your Venmo account gives you more flexibility and control over your transactions. Whether you want to separate personal and business expenses or have a backup email in case you lose access to your primary one, having multiple email addresses linked to your Venmo account can be incredibly useful. Follow the steps above to add a second email to your Venmo account and start enjoying the benefits.
