Project description

Venmo API

Disclaimer: This is an individual effort and is not PayPal/Venmo sponsored or maintained.


This is a wrapper for the Venmo API. This library provides a Python interface for the Venmo API. It's compatible with Python versions 3.6+.


You can install or upgrade venmo-api with:

$ pip3 install venmo-api --upgrade

Or you can install it from the source:

$ git clone --recursive
$ cd Venmo
$ python3 install

Getting Started


In short, you can send money, request for money, get a user's public transactions, get a user's public profile info, etc. The following is an example of initializing and working with it.

from venmo_api import Client

# Get your access token. You will need to complete the 2FA process
access_token = Client.get_access_token(username='',
                                       password='your password')
venmo = Client(access_token=access_token)

# Search for users. You get 50 results per page.
users = venmo.user.search_for_users(query="Peter",
for user in users:

# Or, you can pass a callback to make it multi-threaded
def callback(users):
   for user in users:

Keep this in mind that your access token never expires! You will need to revoke it by yoursef.

venmo.log_out("Bearer a40fsdfhsfhdsfjhdkgljsdglkdsfj3j3i4349t34j7d")
# Request money
venmo.payment.request_money(32.5, "house expenses", "1122334455667")
# Send money
venmo.payment.send_money(13.68, "thanks for the 🍔", "1122334455667")

Getting a user's transactions (public, friends and privates that happen between your account and user_id account)

def callback(transactions_list):
    for transaction in transactions_list:

# callback is optional. Max number of transactions per request is 50.
