Why Does Your Payment Fail on Venmo:

These are the following reasons:

1. Insufficient Funds in Venmo or Linked Bank Account

The first reason your payment may fail in Venmo is that you don’t have enough balance on your Venmo account. Go to the Payment methods option and check your Venmo balance; after that, go for any transaction.

If you have enough balance, but the transaction is canceled every time, another reason may be linking issues with your bank account. If your bank did not link your account with the Venmo account correctly, you might face this problem. You need to go to your bank and handle it yourself to fix it.

If your bank account does not connect your debit or credit card properly, you can also face this problem. In that case, call the credit card company to fix this. 

2. Maybe Venmo Server is Down

If everything is ok from your side, but it is still showing that your transaction is canceled, then there may be the server of Venmo is down. It may often happen with the apps that their server remains down when they update their apps.

Venmo Server is Down

So, if Venmo’s server is down, you can not make payment, but after a few times, you can make your payment again.

3. Exceeding ACH limit
