What if my outgoing Zelle® digital payment is Pending?

If you're correctly registered and have available funds to send the payment, typically that means the recipient (who you're sending money to) is not currently enrolled in Zelle®. First, confirm their contact information, then touch base with them to ensure they're aware that you're trying to send money!

Are Zelle® digital payments ever Cancelled?

A pending transaction will be cancelled after 14 days of remaining in the Pending status.


Can I connect Zelle® to my Landline phone number?

No, Zelle® is only supported via U.S. mobile phone number or email address through your financial institution's mobile app. 


What if someone sends me money or requests money from me and I'm not yet enrolled with Zelle®?

Unenrolled recipients will receive an alert when money or a request for money is sent to
them. The unregistered recipient is instructed within the alert to enroll with Zelle® and confirm
their email address or mobile number to receive the money or respond to the request. Upon
a successful email address or mobile number confirmation, the previously sent transaction is
automatically deposited to the consumer’s bank account and the recipient can respond to
requests for money as well.
