Payment methods


Venmo is a P2P payment service that lets users transfer money to one another via a mobile app.

SellApp has integrated Venmo as a payment processor, which means you can accept Venmo payments for your digital products via our platform and API. Here's how.

The second step is to add your Venmo details to your SellApp storefront:

  1. Navigate to your storefront payment settings by clicking here.

  2. Click Venmo. In the modal that appears, enter your Venmo username and enter the email address of your Venmo account

  3. Save the settings. If all details were entered correctly, you'll now see Venmo as "Active" in the payment settings.

Step 2: Forward Venmo emails to SellApp

In order for us to automatically process Venmo payments, you need to forward Venmo emails to our mailbox.

Heads Up

Without the forwarding rule added, SellApp cannot detect or process Venmo payments automatically, so make sure to add it.

Here's how to do so with a email address:

  1. Open your email and click the cog in the top right hand side, then click "See all settings", or click here to open all settings.

  2. Click the "Forwarding and POP/IMAP" tab (the 6th tab at the top)

  3. Click the "Add a forwarding address" button

  4. In the modal that appears, enter <> as the forwarding address

  5. Once you click the "Next" button, Gmail will send our systems an email with a confirmation URL. We automatically forward the URL to your email. Visit this URL and you will be good to go.

  6. Once verified, we need to create a filter to only forward emails from Venmo to the email we just linked:

    1. In Gmail, go to the "Forwarding" section by clicking here

    2. Click the blue "creating a filter!" text to open the filter modal

    3. In the filter modal that pops up, enter <> in the "From" field, then click the "Create filter" button

    4. In the next page, select the "Forward it to" option, and select <> as the forwarding address

    5. Finally, click "Create filter"

All done! Venmo has been enabled for your store and you can now enable Venmo for every new product you create.

Optionally: Enabling Venmo for products which already exist

If you want to enable Venmo for products which already exist, here's how to do so:

  1. Navigate to your products dashboard by clicking here.

  2. On the products page, toggle the checkboxes of the products you want to enable Venmo for.

  3. Click the "Update Payment Methods" button found in the "bulk update" dropdown that appears.

    1. A modal will pop up; check Venmo (& optionally other payment methods that you'd like enabled)
  4. Finally, click "Update All" in the modal to update the products' payment methods.

That's all done for you: all the products you selected will now have Venmo enabled as a payment method, which customers will be able to select when making a purchase.
