The Venmo Developer API is, and will be, available to all existing users and we will continue to support those partners, including Braintree merchants who use the Payouts API. We have, however, discontinued accepting new beta users of the API as we are focusing efforts to open up the beta to pay with Venmo. Focusing our efforts on allowing users to pay with Venmo within select merchant apps allows us to provide many of the capabilities previously powered by the API, now with optimal user and developer experiences alike.

Multiple options for integrating Venmo into your applications.
