NOTICE: We understand that you may have recently tried transferring money from your Venmo account to your Movo account and were unable to complete the transfer. As you may know, Venmo is a wholly owned subsidiary of PayPal and it has been brought to our attention that they may be restricting Cash Out to Bank Functionality (which allows you to transfer money from your Venmo account to your Movo account). We have researched the situation and found that both PayPal and Venmo have made recent changes to their platforms blocking the bank routing number used by MOVO’s customers for direct deposit purposes. You may want to be proactive in calling customer service at Venmo and PayPal to voice your displeasure with regard to their decision to restrict you from direct depositing your money to your Movo account.
