How do I use PayPal or Venmo QR codes to make a purchase?

  • Make sure you have the latest version of the PayPal or Venmo apps (download if needed)
  • When ready to pay, open the PayPal or Venmo app, select “Scan/Pay” (PayPal) or “Scan” (Venmo) then “Show to pay” to generate QR code on your phone
  • When prompted by the cashier, scan the QR code on your phone using the scanner designated by the cashier
  • CHECK YOUR PHONE – if a prompt appears, confirm the transaction amount (not all transaction require confirmation)
  • Wait for receipt to print, then you are done

Do I need a PayPal or Venmo account to use this solution?

Yes, you must have a PayPal or Venmo account and the most recent version of the PayPal or Venmo mobile app downloaded onto your smartphone.

Do I need to set anything on my phone before I make a QR code payment?

For PayPal – you only need to confirm you have selected preferred payment method for In Store Payments before you make a QR code payment. If you have not made that selection, you will be prompted to make it when you make your first QR code payment.

For Venmo – no advance setup needed.

What is PayPal Credit?

PayPal Credit is a no-cost, interest-free way for customers to finance purchases of $99 or more at checkout. As long as your customer pays in full within 6 months, their order will be financed by PayPal with no additional fees, interest, or costs of any kind.

Is my customer’s bank account, personal data, and card information secure when using a PayPal QR code?

Just like with online purchases, your full payment information is not shared with the seller. Merchants will not see their full card or bank information.

Is there a fee to use QR codes for a transaction?

There is no fee for making QR code payment.

What funding options can I use to pay with PayPal or Venmo?

All funding options in your digital wallet are available for QR code payment:

PayPal: Stored debit card, stored credit card, bank account, available balance with PayPal or PayPal Credit

Venmo: Stored debit card, stored credit cards, bank account, available Venmo balance or Venmo Rewards
