How long can I keep money in my Venmo Account?
It's easy to unfreeze your Venmo account if you have insufficient funds - simply transfer enough money to your Venmo account to cover the debt and it should unfreeze in a few days. However, if Venmo has frozen your account for violating policies, you'll have to contact Venmo to unfreeze it.
In that case, your authorization of the payment will remain valid until the merchant completes the transaction and we may place a temporary hold on the money in your Venmo account for the payment amount (but no longer than 30 days).
