Venmo v7.0 broke the Venmo Splitwise integration (UPDATED: fixed on March 29)

Update 10:57am March 29: The Splitwise Venmo iOS integration has been re-enabled! To use it please upgrade to the latest versions of Venmo and Splitwise. If you need any assistance, please send a note to support@splitwise.com.

Update 2:55pm March 28: The iPhone integration will be re-enabled tomorrow March 29. Please make sure you’ve updated to Venmo version 7.0.1 and Splitwise version 4.4.7. If you need to Settle Up today, please log into our website (splitwise.com); the Splitwise Venmo web integration is working at this time. Or you can send your payment via Venmo directly and use our “Record a cash payment” feature to subsequently update your balance in Splitwise.

Update 9:30am March 22: Venmo is testing a release that will fix this issue.

Update 5:15pm March 21: Android Venmo payments are back to working normally.

Venmo released an iPhone update yesterday (version 7.0) that is preventing the Splitwise integration from working properly with the Venmo iPhone app. We are working with Venmo to resolve the issue and will post here with more information soon.

In the meantime, we’ve temporarily disabled the Venmo button in the Splitwise app until this is resolved (on both iPhone and Android).

Venmo payments made on the Splitwise Android app and website are not affected. Android users should have the Venmo integration re-enabled by the end of the day. If you need help with your account, please email us at support@splitwise.com. Thanks for your patience.

    1. So sorry for the trouble.

      The new target date for the fix is tomorrow March 29. 

      If you want to settle your debts today you have 2 options:
      1. Visit our website (splitwise.com) and log into your existing Splitwise account. The Splitwise Venmo web integration is unaffected by the issue you’re seeing in the app. 
      2. Pay your friends back via Venmo directly. Then open Splitwise and use our “record a cash payment” feature to manually update your balance. You can use the notes field to indicate the payment was actually sent via Venmo.

      I have updated the title of this blog post to reflect the new target date. Apologies that we let it get stale.

      If you need anything else please write support@splitwise.com.
