After allowing a limited number of customers to try out a special beta offering Venmo support with third-party apps in January, Venmo is now allowing all its users to pay for things in the same manner. In fact, starting tomorrow, July 27th, you'll be able to use Venmo for a whole lot more.

The rollout includes ten new merchants, such as Poshmark, Boxed, Priv, Gametime, Munchery, Hop Market, Wish, Parking Panda, Dolly, Urgentil and Delivery.com. Not only will you be able to pay for your purchases in their entirety, but you'll be able to split the bill with other buyers as well.

Venmo has been a favorite of Papa John's customers to split the cost with others when buying pizza, but now that it can be used for additional purchases, it'll likely be a service you'll be hearing a lot more about in the future. According to Venmo, this is "just the beginning." Check out the video below for a quick look at how making payments will actually work going forward.
