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.
Splitwise uses Venmo's simple integration on iOS & Android to let friends split expenses with a couple taps. When you want to settle up with a friend on Splitwise, you go straight to the Venmo app so you're even.
Dasher Messenger uses Venmo's deep integration to enable seamless payments between friends, in the middle of a conversation.
Papa Johns uses Venmo's deep integration to help their customers split pizzas like pros. Once you buy pizza and snacks for your crew, you can connect to Venmo, select your friends and request money from them as you checkout.
