Zelle® is a new way to send money.
We’re different because we partner with leading banks and credit unions making it fast, safe and easy. Raising the bar on security and fraud protection. And making money flow quickly from one person to the next. Moving between bank accounts in minutes not days.
Here’s how Zelle works.
Say you want to pay Jen back $5 for the ice cream she just bought you. First head to https://www.zellepay.com/get-started and see if your bank or credit union offers Zelle. If you’re like over 85 million other Americans, you can access Zelle directly through your bank or credit union. Just go to their website or mobile app and register with your email or mobile number to send money.
If Jen is already registered with Zelle, the money will arrive before your ice cream melts. If she’s not, she’ll get a message explaining how to collect her money.
If Jen’s bank doesn’t offer Zelle, she can download the Zelle app, register with her email or mobile number, and enter the debit card she wants to use. Because she’s new to Zelle, the first payment may take a few days. It’s a security feature that helps keep your money safe safe.
After this first transaction, money will arrive in Jen’s bank accounts in minutes*. Jen gets her $5. You both get ice cream.
Zelle. This is how money moves.®
* Must have a bank account in the U.S. to use Zelle. Transactions between enrolled Zelle users typically occur in minutes. If your recipient is not yet enrolled with Zelle, it may take between 1 and 3 business days after they enroll.
