Venmo not working? Service hit by a massive outage
PayPal owned service Venmo – which lets you make, split, and share payments – is currently down. Reports are pouring in that the service is throwing “unexpected error” or “internal server error” while using the application or logging into it.
Take a look at some of the complaints:

So apparently, users are facing more than one problems with the app. We checked the service’s official Twitter account, but there has been no official word on the matter so far.
There’s also no update regarding this issue on the official Venmo site – none of the help articles there currently say anything about this problem.
If this massive Venmo outage – which has affected a very large number of users – is affecting you as well, rest assured, as we’re keeping an active tab on the matter, and will update this story as and when any newsworthy developments happens.
