Lookup Contact Details for Anyone via SMS: Introducing the About Command

· by Venmo

We added a useful little SMS feature over the weekend that helps you find more info about someone before sending a payment: the About Command.

To view details about any Venmo user, text

“about cafegrumpy”

to 646.863.9557 (VENMO)

We’ll respond with contact info for that user like this:

Venmo info: cafegrumpy
N: Cafe Grumpy
T: @cafegrumpy
P: [if user has added you as financial contact, you can view their phone #]
B: Coffee shop 20th btw 7th+8th

Enjoy the new feature and the lovely springtime weather!

* Pro tip: try using “About 646” to get information about any area code!
