FAQ: Can I Buy a Metal Detector or Gold Prospecting Equipment from High Plains Prospectors Using Venmo?
Yes, you can! After receiving a call from a customer asking if we can take payments via Venmo, I dug in and did some research.
Basically Venmo can be used for checkout since we have Paypal checkout enabled. However, the customer must have the setting approved within their Venmo app. In the Venmo app/settings there is slider/setting to "allow online purchases"
Since we are based in the US, and already support PayPal Checkout, Venmo will automatically appear as a payment option for buyers who have chosen to use Venmo as a payment option.
To opt in and purchase things online with Venmo, tap on the ☰ icon at the top of the app, then tap on Settings. In Settings, there's the Buying section. To use Venmo to pay during checkout, tap Enable Mobile Web Purchase or Connect Browsers.
It should be noted though that Venmo isn't on the surface. The buyer has to click Paypal & then Venmo is an option.
