See this from team Venmo:


Once you make a payment to a registered user the funds are sent to the recipient’s Venmo balance for them to use. At this time, it’s not possible to cancel a payment that’s been sent to a registered user in Venmo. If your payment indicates you paid a “New User”, check out this article for info on how to cancel - otherwise:


The easiest way to get the funds back is to simply have your friend send you a payment for the same amount. Once the funds are in your Venmo balance, you can transfer those funds back to your bank account.


Only in instances when the funds are still in Venmo’s system, can we reverse the funds with the recipient’s permission. If the recipient still sees the funds available in their Venmo balance, please have them reach out to us directly authorizing a reversal and we would be happy to take care of the rest.

Please let me know if you have ANY questions at all, before rating me.

If this has helped, and you DON’T have other questions … I'd appreciate a positive rating (using the stars or faces on your screen, and then clicking “submit")

I hope that you’ll rate me based on my accuracy and thoroughness, rather than any good news/bad news content.

That’s the only way will compensate me for the work here.
