If you send money to someone who isn’t enrolled with Zelle, they will receive a notification prompting them to enroll. After enrollment, the money will move directly into your recipient's account, and your recipient will be able to receive future payments faster, typically within minutes.1

If the payment is still pending, we recommend confirming that the person you sent money to has enrolled with Zelle and that you entered the correct email address or U.S. mobile phone number. If you’re waiting to receive money, you should check to see if you’ve received a payment notification via email or text message. If you haven’t received a payment notification, we recommend following up with the sender to confirm they entered the correct email address or U.S. mobile phone number.

  • In order to use Zelle, the sender and recipient's bank accounts must be based in the U.S.
  • There is no way to cancel a payment once a user hits "send."
  • If the person you sent money to has already enrolled with Zelle, the money is sent directly to their bank account and cannot be canceled. This is why it’s important to only send money to people you know and trust, and always ensure you’ve used the correct email address or U.S. mobile number when sending money.
  • If you sent money to the wrong person, we recommend contacting the recipient and requesting the money back. If you aren’t able to get your money back, please call us at 800-719-8080 (TTY 855-584-0256), Monday through Friday from 7am-7pm and Saturday 9am-4pm.
  • If your recipient did not receive your payment, make sure they’ve enrolled an email address or U.S. mobile number with Zelle.
