Pros: Did you know the root of the word convenient actually stems from the Latin word "ven"? That's exactly what Venmo is. And the inspiration behind the name Venmo actually came from the word vendo/vendere; the Latin word "to sell". Venmo is one of my favorite apps, I use on a daily basis. It has served as a lifesaver to me on many occasions when I did not have my wallet or cash in hand. You can transfer money to someone else almost instantly and will receive a notification when they have accepted the transaction, so you don't have to wonder. Transfers from your Venmo to your banking account will show up as quickly as the next business day (as long as it doesn't fall on the weekend or a holiday). One of the best features of Venmo is that you are not charged a transaction fee when you transfer money between your banking account using a debit card. But, the best part is the free entertainment If you ever want a little laugh, go and take a look at some of the reasons other people have used Venmo. It's pretty funny (especially over the weekends). If you are looking for a free, entertaining alternative to PayPal, Venmo will definitely satisfy your needs.

Cons: If your Venmo account is connected to a credit card you will be charged a small fee when you make transfers between the two. I would not necessarily see this as a fault in Venmo because you still have the free option available to you by using a debit card.

Pros: Venmo make it easy to send over money in just a few clicks without having to dig into menus or settings. For frequent contacts, it's even faster. The feed, while not for everyone, allows you to quickly see what you and your friends have transferred, along with helpful descriptions that are heavy on emojis. Finally, setting up a bank account and eventually withdrawing money to that bank account are simple. For those wanting immediate withdrawals, Venmo offers that for an extra fee.

Cons: For those that are't as keen on the social feature, there's no real way to turn it off. You do have the option of making all of your transfers private, but the feed is still there. Would be great if in addition to your personal feed, there were better reporting tools in the app. Finally, the immediate transfer option was formerly 25 cents, but it's now 1% of the amount, which doesn't make it practical unless there's an urgent need.

Overall: Overall, it's no surprise why Venmo has gotten so much traction and was eventually acquired by PayPal. It makes money transfer easier and more fun than PayPal had ever been. Now with Paypal's heft, we should see a steady stream of improvements. Their recent debit card release is proof of that.

Pros: I use Venmo mainly to sort out the bill at the end of a night out with friends at a bar or after dinner at a restaurant. It is so easy to pay others, there are no fees, and the transfer of money is instantaneous. Plus, the software sends texts when someone requests money from you or sends money to you. The app will also connect directly to your bank account for easy transfer of money between your personal bank account and your Venmo account.

Cons: There are basically no cons, I think this software is the perfect way to send money to and from friends. No complaints.

Overall: Overall, I have had an incredibly positive experience with using Venmo. I will continue to use the app for years to come.

Pros: Venmo is perfect in college where you might be paying rent on behalf of multiple people, or utilities, etc. And same goes for a workplace setting, where you might get lunch out with a big group and can't split the check. It's super convenient with to be able to pay from Venmo funds or from your bank account (also easy to set that up!).

Cons: The biggest issue I faced with Venmo was when I was Treasurer of an organization, I wanted to make an account so that our customers could pay us for merchandise via Venmo (much easier than trying to have cash, or getting a Square for credit cards). This is something any one of our board members could've had downloaded. But signing in and out of a personal vs. group account is not easy, especially when it wants to be verified from a phone number.

Overall: Overall, Venmo is absolutely perfect for paying back and requesting funds from friends or people you see regularly. It just needs to support multi-account functionality so that people will use it instead of Square or PayPal.

Pros: Everything about it is amazing! Work Colleagues will pay one another for lunches, or when I had to Venmo a mom on my daughters basketball team, her money for their team jackets! You can be live and see what others have transferred or be hidden. I like you can use emojis to say what it was for, makes it fun.

Cons: That people see the amount that you got or gave. Sometimes, a salon will give a client a "deal" but if someone else wanted to go they might think that will be the same cost to them? They might need to of course address that with the owner etc.

Overall: Love it, use it all the time! And Whats best is you don't have to wait for the transfer a few days its INSTANT and the "credit card" option is great to have a small amount on and if you don't link it to your account they can't go into your over draft etc.

So easy. LOVE.

Pros: Venmo is one of the easiest things that has made such a difference in life! Even just going to get lunch with friends, Venmo is SO easy. I buy the lunch, and my friends pay me instantly. Transfering money to my mom for bills - easy. When one of my friends told me I should get it, she said "Venmo saves friendships", and she was right. I recommend this to EVERYONE who does not have it. If you don't have Venmo, you are missing out on making your life easier. Time is money people - so get this app and make your life easier! It's even easy to sign up!!

Cons: I actually don't like the "feed" they have. This isn't even a real "complaint", it's more of a personal thing. I just think it's odd that there is a public feed of who is paying who, and for what. Luckily, (great option), I can shut this off!

I also don't think it's necessary for me to have to give a reason why I am paying someone! I think it should be optional!

But both not complaints here, just more preference! SO happy I got Venmo! :)

Overall: So glad this was invented. It truly makes life easier. And I use this for much more than I thought I would!

Pros: Venmo removed the confusion and fine print of money transfers and made an easy and seamless way to conduct transactions digitally.

Cons: The "review by a human" trigger is unnecessarily sensitive. I also would appreciate the option of automatically transferring money in my Venmo account to my bank after a certain time period or after hitting a certain amount.

Overall: Venmo makes it easy to conduct business digitally as you pay other Venmo users--with no fees. The initial setup is the hardest part, although it isn't hard. After entering information for your financial institution, Venmo makes two tiny payments that you have to watch for at your bank and then enter the amounts to verify your identity and that the account really belongs to you. It's a bit of a time-consuming hassle, but I understand the need for verification and security.

After your account is set up, just ask someone for their user name to send or receive money immediately. When you receive money, it goes into your Venmo account, and you have to check your account from time to time and manually transfer funds to your main financial institution.

Venmo has been easy and a pleasure to use both personally and professionally. It's a superior and simpler interface and system to the digital payment systems of the past and is my new favorite.

The easiest way to send money, pay people back, or purchase on the web.

Pros: Venmo is great. Ever go out to dinner and forget to ask to split the check? Ever forget your wallet and have a buddy spot you a coffee? Venmo makes it so you can pay them back RIGHT AWAY. All you have to do is take out your phone, bring up the app, send the money and BOOM they have it right away. I can't tell you how many times I've used venmo. I actually receive monthly payments on a loan a gave out through venmo. There are no fees associated with it which is the best part! I really enjoy the convenience with venmo. You can also see what your friends are up to in the app. Sometimes I forget birthdays then I see a friend sent some money with a "happy birthday" tag... That reminds me to do the same! lol

Cons: The only thing that actually does kind of bug me is that you can see what transfers people are doing. Not so much the dollar amount but if a friend charges someone or if someone sends someone money, you can see it. I am kind of a private person so this is not my favorite feature.

Overall: Overall venmo is fast and easy. I will continue to use it regularly.

Pros: Venmo is an easy way to pay friends, split the bill, or make recurring payments. I liked the ease of set-up: all it takes is linking a bank account and then you're good to go. You can set reminders if you have monthly payments to someone, like for child care or transportation, or create a recurring deduction from your account. Venmo makes it easy to split a meal bill between friends, or pay someone back for an Uber, without needing to carry cash around. Venmo also allows you to pay in other apps, and tracks your spending, making it easy to know where your money is going.

Cons: For my uses, Venmo has been great. It's possible that this is already built in to the app, but I haven't found a way to email myself a receipt, in case I wanted to turn it in and expense something for business.

Overall: Venmo makes it easy to travel with colleagues and not worry about carrying cash, paying people back, or needing to keep a tab for things because a payment can be set up right away.

Pros: This software changed the game for me. It has made group bills easy to pay, rent/mortgage/utilities a breeze to split, and has even allowed for charitable giving! I really can't say enough how much I love this app and it's ease of use. I was probably leaving thousands of dollars a year on the table because it was awkward to ask to be reimbursed for things--not anymore!

Cons: The only downside is that there is a limit to what you can send each month. This has been an issue when sending mortgage payments, etc back and forth between my fiance and I.

Pros: It's very easy to link to your bank account and allows you to transfer small amount of money to your friends and colleagues. Everything is track on the app, which allows you to account for every transaction you make and what is still pending.

One of the features I like most about this app is that you have the option to either transfer your funds into you bank account, or to keep them within the app. Allowing you to pay for things with the money "banked" on your account.

Cons: I've been using this app for the past 2 years, and I have not found anything yet that I would consider bad. Some of the common complaints are with the amount of time it takes for the money to be transferred from the app to your bank account. A lot of this is out of the Apps control as the banks usually dictate that

Overall: Overall, this is an extremely convenient app, and is something that is becoming common place within groups.

Pros: It's definitely use to use and such a simple software. You can either pay someone or charge someone that needs to pay you. You can even send reminders, so you don't have that awkward conversation of asking for money. Venmo has been great! Even with a touch of a button, you can transfer the money you have sitting in your account to your bank account.

Cons: The one complaint about this product is not being able to retract a request or money sent if it's to the wrong person. I haven't done this yet, but I can see how this would be an issue. I've had people I don't know make charge requests. I'm hoping this gets fixed soon. However, before you send money to someone not in your contacts, Venmo will ask again if this is the right person.

Overall: When you don't have cash and need to pay someone instantly, Venmo is your best friend! I've been using it for awhile now and it's such a great product!

Pros: Venmo is Kind of mobile payments because everyone I know has it. I'd say that's 98% of the reason it's the best. The other 2% of things it does well are the following:

- Option for quick transfer works really well

- Can be integrated with other businesses (Uber, for example!)

- Venmo card is an easy way to spend your balance

- Free

- Secure

Cons: The rest of venmo is not as great. It isn't painful or bad, just bloated.

- The social feed is weird. Why do I need to share with the world that I am paying my friend for french fries?

- The app is surprisingly sluggish. Even on my iPhone Xs, it takes a while to move around.

- There is not "auto deposit" option

Overall: Every college student, give or take, uses Venmo. It's easy, free, and quick to use. Though there are better designs out there (Square Cash, for example), Venmo will continue to reign as long as it has the largest market share.

Pros: Obsessing over Venmo! Gone are the days of carrying around cash! I love the ability to put things on my card and have friends reimburse me almost instantly! No more tracking down for who owes me. They can pay back right on the spot when I cover their half of something.

Cons: The only thing that stinks is the small fee to transfer to your bank immediately. It's kot terrible enough to complain about it, but it is kind of a bummer. Facebook messenger has no fee to transfer instantly but I hate using that because there's always security breeches. I trust Venmo.

Overall: I use Venmo for group orders or group activities. When someone owes me or I owe someone, it makes pay back easy. I don't have to go the atm I can just wire them money instantly

Pros: Venmo has been great for me and many people I know. It is especially helpful when it comes to personal use for paying/splitting bills with roommates. Instead of messing with checks every time you want to split something or pay someone back, you can simply send it over Venmo and it makes the process faster, easier, and simpler than it has been in the past.

Cons: The only negative thing I have to say is that I dislike that you can see what other people in your phone contacts have sent and received from others. No $ amount is shown, but I still think that is a little bit too much privacy lost. Therefore, if you're worried about privacy of a transaction, this would not be the way to go.

Pros: Venmo is such a classy software. Even just the interface is very classy and clean. It makes me feel calm for some reason. Money can be such an isolating topic but with Venmo, even when you do not have a lot of it, the software, I think, is sophisticated enough to say, "Don't worry. Everything is going to be fine."

Cons: I'm not sure about the fact that we can literally see who has been sending money to whom. I'm not saying I don't like it, but I think it's an interesting choice on the developers' part to design it that way. Also, the fact that it takes a quarter of a dollar if you wish to instantly transfer money from Venmo to your bank is, I think, could hamper the company in the long run in terms of customer relations.

Overall: I love Venmo. I think it's cool and sophisticated and very well-designed. It's definitely here to stay.

Pros: What do I love about Venmo? EVERYTHING! This app is simple as it sets out to do one thing and does it really well: makes it easy to transfer money between people. I downloaded it out of irritation because a friend was sending me cash and needed a way to do it quickly. "Not another app" I thought. Since then, I've deleted several other similar apps in favor of Venmo.

It's easy to find people who are using it and just as easy to invite others to start. The verification process takes minutes (not days!) and cash is sent instantly. With a minimal feel you can even transfer your newly deposited funds into your bank account immediately, or for free, wait 24 hours until they are available. More stores are accepting Venmo at checkout and you can even request a Venmo debit card.

I also love that sending money doesn't require 49 different steps. Seriously, just select the person to whom you're sending the money, enter the amount, verify and send. So simple, super intuitive, and even my elderly parents can operate it without problem.

Cons: Honestly, I have not found anything to dislike about this software.

Overall: I highly recommend Venmo if you need to send or receive money from anyone.

Pros: This software is great for large groups when it comes to collecting money. Many times, people don't have cash on them and they don't want to take out cash from the ATM because it charges extra money to take your own cash out. Venmo is great because people can instantly send money. More people also contribute (i.e. Fundraising events, donations, contests, etc.) when this option is available. This is crucial around the holidays when there is a lot of collecting going on in the office.

Cons: Sometimes it takes a few days to receive your money in your bank account but I have been noticing the transfer times are getting shorter...sometimes I even receive the money within the same day.

Pros: It's so easy to split bills, pay people back, and transfer money with Venmo. If a friend forgot his wallet, he can just Venmo you. This solves so many issues I previously had! Insanely useful app. Also increasingly replacing PayPal with young people.

Cons: Honestly, very few issues with the app. It's a little odd that payments default to public, so that others can see who paid who (within their network), but that seems to be part of their model. Kind of a fun social network vibe.

Overall: I use Venmo to pay or get paid by anyone else that has Venmo.

Pros: All my friends use it...so its useful. The biggest value in this software is in the number of users it has, not its actual functionality.

Cons: It tries to marry payments with social media. Why would I want anything financial public in any way? Yes you can set it all to private, but it seems like putting social functions in a payment app is a poor choice. There are also better apps to send money, but they are not as powerful as Venmo because they do not have the same size user base.

Pros: Venmo was far ahead of other money apps, but it has maintained its superiority. It has made meals that much easier to split tabs and keep track of how much you individually spent. It sends a report as well which is helpful. it integration with other apps now also makes it worthwhile having.

Cons: I'm not a huge fan of the extra fees you might make if you choose to cash out to a debit card. I hope that they will continue to keep the standard checking account transfer free.

Pros: You can easily verify who you are sending/receiving when setting up transactions. Also is great to see a social media wrinkle to the app to make money transactions more entertaining.

Cons: It does not have a "touch ID" feature. Even though you exit out of the app, the screen can still be easily viewed by someone random. I would prefer for it to be set up similar to bank apps where you have to login again after a certain period of time.

Overall: Yes! It limit transactions being complicated.

Pros: I love that Venmo is super easy to use and allows me to exchange money quickly. The possibilities are limitless as you can utilize Venmo to pay for rent, babysitting, payback friends, and more. It is a staple app in my phone that I regularly use.

Cons: They only downside of Venmo is the fee % when you use the instant deposit to your debit card. This is quickly remedied by the free option to deposit to your bank, but the deposit isn't instantaneous and can take a few days to show up. As long as you know this information up-front, you can decide how to deposit your money.

Pros: It seems obvious to say, but the sheer convenience of being able to send anyone money at any time is such a game changer. For business and personal purposes, it blends seamlessly with every other convenience-increasing luxury we indulge in. And being able to label transactions with emojis is just plain fun.

Cons: Personally, I think the default privacy setting should be private, I'm not sure why an app dedicated to the transaction of money also feels the need to have a social aspect to it? While I admit that I've found myself scrolling through all the activity on my feed I still find it quite intrusive and a bit creepy that it's so easy to do. At least they were smart enough to leave the actual dollar amounts invisible.

Pros: This software lets you easily link a card or bank account to it so you can transfer relatively small amounts of money to your friends. It is quick and makes things like splitting a food bill or settling a bet easy if you don't have or ever carry cash.

Cons: Some regional financial institutions are not included in the direct deposit option. This means you would have to use a debit card number which incurs a 1% fee each time money is withdrawn from your Venmo to your bank. Additionally, you need to make sure that you have your friends correct information because you could easily send money to a stranger with the same name.

Overall: Overall this has been a good product and has made some financial interactions with friends more convenient.

Pros: What isn't there to like about venmo it's free and easy. Being able to make payments on the fly for picking something up from a marketplace purchase, paying for for a service, or just paying back family/friends Venmo makes it simple and quick. The ability to add friends and/or on going payment receivers means I just click their name and put in the amount done.

Cons: The only Con I've found is that you have to turn off the share payments if you don't want others to know what you are paying for items or services. I feel like this should be off by default unless you want to share it with your Venmo friends.

Overall: I was looking for a simple and quick way to pay for goods and services. Venmo filled that void.

Cons: I deleted an old account for this app before as I changed an email address. However, when I registered a new account and linked to my bank account, it showed my bank account was linked to other accounts. Even my old account was totally deleted, the data Venmo still kept it and I still cannot link my bank account to my new Venmo account now. Inconvenient.

Pros: Venmo is quick and easy payment method that is great for business or personal use. It makes splitting the cost of something super easy. You are given the money immediately, which can then be directly transferred to your bank account. It also helps to keep track of spending.

Cons: The security on the app is what worries me the most, putting your bank account information into any online presence can be risky and scary

Pros: It's easy, works just the same as Paypal (connects directly to your bank account or cards if necessary), one can transfer money or funds very easily, and it's all very clearly tracked on the app. I also like having another option for needing to pay someone.

Cons: The entire point of Venmo is the social networking bit, which is entirely unnecessary and makes me feel like I'm snooping. Why do I need to see transactions of complete strangers on my feed, or even of friends paying friends?

Overall: I use Venmo to pay a few bills to private small companies from my work. I appreciate its simplicity, easy ability to track transactions, email notifications of transactions for verification/security, and having one more option for paying clients or businesses I hire. I do find the "social" aspect of it entirely unnecessary, and also wonder why Paypal (who owns Venmo) didn't simply add that feature to their already existing platform instead of creating an entire new company.

Pros: Venmo is SO easy to use! It is very easy to set up your bank account, and start sending money! You have a log of all of the transactions you have made, and also you can see what your friends have paid for (the description, not the amount). You can easily send money to anyone else with the Venmo app. The touch ID feature is awesome to help protect your Venmo from unwanted people. Venmo is now also allowing people to use it at certain stores! That will be awesome!

Cons: If you use a debit card to send money, there is a charge for using it. But if you connect your bank account, there is no charge! So, just connect your bank account!

Pros: I love that there are no fees for transfers. It's also quick: next-day direct deposits to your connected bank account.

Cons: I think it's a bit superfluous that Venmo allows people to comment on transactions. I understand the purpose of a memo section, but why add a social component to it at all? Just looks like clutter on the feed.

Overall: Almost everyone has Venmo now, so it's almost an immediate reaction when splitting a bill with someone and hearing them say, "it's fine, just Venmo me". It's worth downloading for free transfers for friends.

Pros: Venmo is a great alternative to carrying cash or having a checkbook handy. I have been able to pay a dog sitter as she drives home, split a gift bill with my sister and even tithe at church with this app. It takes no time at all to set up your profile and start sending and receiving money.

Cons: I could do without the public forum where it shows which one of your friends has sent or received money.

Overall: Great product. Surpasses your expectations for a free app

Pros: Venmo makes it so easy to pay people, especially now that so many businesses are also accepting it. The transfer of funds from user to user is instantaneous so no one is ever really waiting for money to arrive.

Pros: Ease of use is fantastic. It simply connects to the account of your choice and you're able to send or accept transfers of funds in a matter of seconds. Helpful for donations or payments, and it's fun to see he other transfers that have happened between my friends and other people they know!

Cons: I didn't realize if you have less than the total amount needed to pay someone, it won't use up what you have saved in your Venmo account and then pull the rest from your linked account. It skips over what's saved in your Venmo account and pulls it all out of he linked account.

I also wish that Venmo was a valid paying option on websites online, similar to PayPal. That would be incredibly convenient! Venmonis so easier to use than PayPal.

Overall: Overall I really enjoy using it and suggest it to friends and colleagues alike.

Pros: I love being able to perform money transfers without having to worry about exact change or remembering who has paid what to whom. Venmo allows for money transactions to be made and then keeps a detailed history of these transactions. I have used Venmo for buying things, paying back friends, paying rent, and more.

Cons: I might just be too paranoid, but sharing my bank account info makes me nervous. I have never been given reason to mistrust Venmo. It's just a me thing.

Pros: Very easy to setup and use. Sending money is really quick. Sending money or getting it is as simple as it gets.

Cons: They are reducing function on their web interface which I don't like but it is understandable in an app based world. I do wish they would make it a little easier to find people on the platform, but it isn't too hard. Just get your friends handle.

Overall: I have had good experience. It has made it really easy to get money or send as needed. There is a delay on bank transfers but I believe that isn't Venmo's fault so much as bank regulations. It would be nice if transfers were instant but I have had no issues.

Overall: It's a great way as a freelancer to get quick money to and from clients without having any fees.

Pros: I like that I can send/receive money from anyone, in a secure way, regardless of knowing the person. This way I can buy and sell things online using Venmo to received the money without having to give my information to strangers. I also like that I can link my bank account and use credit cards to pay for things through Venmo. A second plus is that you can request money from friends without being awakard.

Cons: One time I absolutely needed to make a payment through Venmo and the app did not accept the payment/complete the transaction for unknown reasons. I felt really bad because I didn't want the person to think that I was not gonna pay her. She was not my friend so I felt extra bad.

Pros: Extremely easy to use and essential for almost every social (and even business) gatherings. Eliminates hassle dealing with cash reimbursements or IOUs which is how it was in the pre-Venmo era. There is a reason "can I like Venmo you later" is a common phrase among the youth nowadays.

Cons: Fees for credit card transfers. Requires linkage to a Facebook account or similar.

Pros: I like that it was easy for me to transfer the money. Also it was easy for me to find the person I was looking for who needed the money. I know that we have different remittance options.

Cons: The fee. I hoped that the fee I needed to pay was a bit on the higher side than what I expected. I also did not liked that venmo would like to save my bank account information. In todays world I am not sure that I am comfortable with another company storing my primary bank details.

Overall: Over all experience was neutral. I tried recommending Venmo to my friends for the same event for which I contributed the money to but all of them declined because of the fee they had to pay. I am discouraged and planning to just pay with check next time as the receiver nowerdays can just use their smartphone to deposit a check.

Pros: I recently began to use Venmo when friends suggested they pay me in this fashion, and I was pleasantly surprised by how simple it was. Transactions are incredibly easy to carry out, and so far interactions between the app and my bank have been incredibly smooth. No more rounding up when paying back friends!

Cons: Since my phone is not running on the most up-to date OS and I don't wish to currently update, I cannot run the app from my phone. I was relying on the desktop app for quite some time, but unfortunately that is being discontinued. Thankfully, I have an iPad that I can use to continue to access this app, but I am overall disappointed that desktop support is no longer a feature.

Pros: I really find this to be easy to use- limited fees and super straight forward via phone app. If you have your phone, it should be really easy to use.

Cons: It could be just me, but I couldn't figure out how to make it work via a computer- which I guess is okay, but sometimes computer is a bit easier if you're already in front of your computer. Not a deal breaker though.

Overall: The strange experience I had was being told it wasn't to be used for business- so I didn't use it for that purpose- but then I saw they have business admin rules, so I found that to be a bit unclear.

Pros: It is very simple to use. If you're familiar with Paypal, the set-up is very similar. You put in the payment information you want to use, your bank account and you're good to go. There are no fees for any transactions. You use if basically for friends, relatives and people you know.

Cons: There are no protections like there are with Paypal so if you change your mind about a payment there's no turning back. But it is meant for transactions between people who know one another. Everyone who's in your circle sees who you are paying and how much.

Overall: It's great for paying for your Superbowl Pool entries and paying back a friend for something. Or just sending a few bucks to someone to treat to a lunch.

Pros: I will be the first to admit that I was a holdout on the Venmo bandwagon that all my friends were on. And now I don't know how I lived without it. It is very easy to use, and track payments. The best thing about this software is how easy it is to use! Enough said.

Cons: For me, the bank account setup was a bit cumbersome. If you have a major bank (Wells Fargo, Chase, etc.), approval, I believe, is instantaneous. As I use a small, local credit union, it took a few tries (and a few days) to go through the approval process with the test transfer. It the end it was worth it, but frustrating for this non-techy.

Overall: Overall, I love Venmo. So happy I jumped on board!

Pros: It is insanely fast to send/receive money on your phone to someone. It comes directly out of your account almost instantly and you never have to worry about whether they received it or not.

Cons: You HAVE to put something in the comments to send money. Why is this necessary? Also if you have $ in your account and you want to send more than that to someone else, it doesn't use the $ already in your account and then take out the overage. That's annoying.

Overall: As a competitor to other money sending apps/services, Venmo seems to be the "cool" standard and gaining popularity. That makes me a lot more comfortable using it and relying on it to send and receive money.
