How can I send money to someone without VenMo or Google Pay?

I have a Moto G6. I need to send money to someone every month. My phone doesn’t have NFC and Republic doesn’t support VenMo… what other ways can I send them the funds, hopefully without having to pay a sizable fee?


Issue Description

I use PayPal. It does require the other party to have PayPal. Accounts are free and I’ve never run into fees.

I’ve also used gift cards. For example, I use Amazon a lot so sometimes I’ve had people buy an Amazon gift card for me as payment. This is probably not realistic in most situations.

Hi Gina… Just to be clear, Venmo won’t allow Republic numbers, that’s simply a policy on their part. Republic doesn’t do anything that would prevent Venmo from working.

Google Pay works fine for person-to-person payments, without any need for NFC.

All that said, I’ve also used the Cash App and PayPal for person-to-person payments with my Republic phone…
