How to create a Venmo account using a US virtual number
It is no secret that most people are starting to dive into the digital payment movement. In 2021, a poll made in the US showed that 82% of Americans used digital payments, compared to the 78% obtained in 2020 and 72% in 2016.
An important part of the digital payment revolution is the rise of mobile payment apps, such as Venmo. Owned by PayPal, it enables users to quickly send/receive money and also make purchases through the app.
Venmo is a free-of-charge peer-to-peer (P2P) payment app that allows users to link their accounts to their credit/debit card or even a checking account. Once this is done, users can begin to exchange funds with other Venmo users, which is why it acts as a middleman between users’ accounts while transactions are being made.
As said before, users can make purchases with Venmo’s Mastercard wherever they want as long as Mastercard is accepted, purchase through apps and mobile websites from authorized Venmo partners, use QR codes to make purchases, cash certain checks after verifying their identity by applying for a Venmo debit card or setting up a direct deposit, sign up for direct deposit for their paychecks to go straight to their Venmo accounts – which can take up to two days earlier than the usual payday – and receive price alerts about differeny types of cryptocurrency (BTC, ETH, LTC and BTC Cash) that they can buy, sell or hold through Venmo.
Even though Venmo seems to be quite the app to safely handle money, signing up could be a bit frustrating for users that find pretty risky to share personal information to companies, no matter how recognized they are. The thing is that, nowadays, signing up on any trustworthy platform requires introducing a phone number, so there is a perfect tool for those who just don’t feel like entering their real number: virtual numbers provided by us, Major Phones.
They are the perfect tool to make the Venmo sign up process much easier and safer. In this guide, you’ll learn how to bypass Venmo phone number verification with a US virtual number to sign up successfully on this incredible platform.
This guide is made for users residing in the US, but if you’re not in the US and still want to set up your account as if you were, you can use a residential proxy. This way you can connect to web pages of the United States from a residential IP address, just as if you were there.
Step 1: open the Venmo app
Venmo can be accessed through a mobile application. Just click on the Venmo icon
Step 2: sign up
Once you’re in, you need to sign up. Click on “Create account”.
Then, choose weather you want to use Venmo for personal or business purposes. Then, click on “Get started”.
To confirm it is really you, Venmo will ask you to enter a phone number and then click on “Send code” to get the verification text message. Don’t worry, this is where our virtual numbers come to scene.
Step 3: get a Venmo short-term number
Our short-term numbers can be used for one-time verifications – some of them might even be re used, but not all. If you need to verify your account again, it could be possible for you to re use your virtual number to do so. However, we strongly recommend you to purchase a long-term number instead so that you can use it as many times as you want within the rental period.
To get your Venmo temporary number, you’ll need to head over to our website, where you’ll see the “Sign Up” and the “Sign In” buttons at the top right of the homepage.
If you don’t have an account yet, click on “Sign Up”, enter the information required and click on “Sign Up” again. For more information about our website, go watch our main tutorial.
If you already have an account, click on “Sign In” and enter your email and password.
Once you sign in, make sure you select “United States” on the top tab that says “Select Country”. Then, go to the “Services” tab and click on “Short-term numbers”.
Then, type “Venmo” on the search tab and click on the blue “Purchase” button.
After that, you’ll need to confirm your purchase by clicking on the checkbox and then on the “Next” button.
After you get your virtual number, click on the “Copy” button.
Step 4: enter your number
After you enter the number you got on the Venmo’s app, you will have to enter the code sent to it.
Go back to your Major Phones account, where you’ll be able to see the code.
After your account is successfully verified, Venmo will ask you few more detalis about yourself, like first and last name, a username, your email and a secure password.
Once you have provided all of this information, confirm you are at least 18 years old and then click on “Next”.
You can choose to add your debit card or skip this step for now.
