For venmo it doesn't matter, but I sometimes use them to buy GC at my grocer, and they need to see the name.

Reddit contributors are saying Venmo is dead, is this correct?

I keep getting errors when I try to load or pay with an AGC.

Mine was working till the afternoon and then stopped by the evening. I actually called AmEx to see if it was something on their end. They said merchant is using wrong security code. I haven't called Venmo

Huge blow if this is dying, hopefully just temporary.

DPs on reddit showing AGC are being declined for everything, not just Venmo transactions.

I'm having issues with AGC purchased at Safeway on both Venmo and Verizon. And the AGC I bought on Amex last week aren't working with venmo, but the card purchased two weeks ago worked just fine as of the same day as trying the new cards.

Yes, some DPs coming into the reddit thread now showing AGC declines at more places than just Venmo and Amazon, so it's looking more like an AMEX issue. There is hope for this yet once they get their issues fixed, if this is on AMEX's end.

agc > venmo is dead, per reddit. mcgc > venmo still works, but limited to $500/card.

I can confirm Metabank MCGC on Venmo works without a fee (says it'll charge 3% but does not in reality)

For MCGC, there's a $500 limit for everyone? Even if you have an established account?

Well that's all the card can hold so yeah... Also remember only 6 cards/6 months so it's not really scalable.
