Green lights make engineers (and users!) happy. Unfortunately failure is always lurking, especially when your user base grows at the exciting (and sometimes frightening!) rate Venmo’s does. During our outages in the past, we lacked a public facing way to inform our users about potential issues on the platform. In short, we lacked a status page. We're sorry for holding off on shipping one for so long, but the good news is, we finally have one in place.

If you hop over to the page you’ll see the current state of all relevant parts of Venmo, together with the latest incidents and their resolutions.

The status page also supports updates notifications via email, so you can sign up to be notified via email when an issue comes up.

We're using a hosted service for this service thanks to the awesome team at http://statuspage.io.
