Transition Tip Tuesday for December 1, 2020
Send or receive funds from friends and acquaintances for…FREE!
That’s right. There’s an ACCESSIBLE way to transfer money between bank accounts without the need for a paper check or cash: Venmo.
Venmo is an application that allows people to transfer money between themselves with no fees (there is a charge if you use a credit card, though). You simply send or receive funds via the Venmo app on your phone or computer. Venmo is owned by PayPal and has good security features. However, as always, be careful with your personal banking information and make sure you are sending funds to a trusted source.
Blind/low vision individuals can use accessible software to use this app. Venmo is available at no cost from the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. You may also access your Venmo account on the web.
