Yes I know you can specify in special instructions. I was wondering if you could make an API-integrated seamless at check out. They may have an API now? Just got this:"Selling your couch on a digital marketplace? Offering your services online? Now, with Venmo Purchase Protection, you can do business with confidence. When payments to a personal profile are tagged as a good or service, Purchase Protection is available on eligible payments* and sellers will pay a 1.9% + $0.10 transaction fee.
Buy and sell with peace of mind, knowing you can be covered in the event something goes wrong."
As far as I know, the only Venmo API is through Braintree. We do support the Braintree gateway, but only for credit cards right now. We may add support for other non-card methods that Braintree supports at some point, but that involves converting to a completely different API, so it's a large effort.
