#1 You haven’t transferred money to your Bank account
If you are new to the Venmo app, you should know that the funds in Venmo balance is not automatically transferred to your Bank; you have to move it.
Your money or balance in your Venmo account is stored in the Venmo wallet unless you transfer it to your bank account.

If you have moved your money to your Bank correctly, there might be several other reasons your payment is not showing as listed below.
#2 You chose standard deposit instead of Instant deposit
When you are transferring money from your Venmo account to your bank account, there are two options, one is the Standard deposit, and the other is the Instant deposit.
Standard deposit takes 2-3 business days to transfer the funds, and sometimes up to a week.
On the other hand, instant deposits are instant or may take up to 30 minutes.
Note: The Standard deposit option is free, but the Instant deposit asks a 1.5% fee (with a minimum fee of $0.25 and a maximum fee of $15) for each transfer.
#3 Servers of Venmo are having issues
Venmo, owned by PayPal, is a financial technology company with over 70 million users. So, there are thousands, if not millions, of transactions are going-on in real-time. It isn’t easy to maintain and process these transactions at the same time.
Sometimes Venmo app servers experience issues, which can result in transfer failure or delayed payment.
So, if you have moved your money from Venmo to your Bank, and it’s not showing up, then the chances are that the servers of Venmo are down.
You can check the server status of Venmo by visiting its down detector page here.
#4 Servers of your Bank are down
If the servers of Venmo are working fine, then it might also be the case that the servers of your Bank account are down.
So, if you have transferred money from your Venmo account to your bank account and the servers of your bank are down, then the payment will remain on hold for a while.
However, the payment will show up in your bank account once the server issues get resolved. Don’t worry about that at all.
Note: This issue may take a few hours or even more than that to get resolved.
#5 Venmo flagged your Payment
To protect users from fraudsters or scammers, the Venmo security system works continuously. These security bots block the payment when they detect any unusual activity.
So, even if your payment is legitimate, it can also be flagged by mistake, and your transfer can get failed or not reach your bank account.
In this case, if the money is deducted from your Venmo account and not showing your bank, then it should return to your Venmo balance within a few days.
