There have been quite a few questions in Member community about Zelle and we want to make sure all your questions and concerns are addressed. I sat down with Kiyanna Garland to give a few more details about USAA and Zelle. Kiyanna Joined USAA in 2004, and works in the Bank Money Movement team as a Product Management Director. She is the Experience Owner for Person to Person (P2P) transactions.
Why Zelle and what are the advantages?
Zelle℠ is the new way to send and receive money quickly, safely, and securely between almost any U.S. bank account within minutes using a mobile number or email address. The experience of Send Money with Zelle℠ is available within the USAA mobile banking app.
How do I set it up?
Here is a step by step with photos, but members must also:
When should I use Zelle?
Zelle can be used for the everyday experiences such as paying friends or family for your share of the dinner bill or to send funds for birthday gifts.
When should I use transfer funds (and where do I find it)?
You should use Transfer Funds when moving money between bank accounts you own, USAA and non-USAA. To do this, tap “Transfer” from the tab bar in USAA mobile app, located at the bottom of the screen on iOS devices and at the top of the screen on Android devices
If you are like member Pittsburgh75 who is not receiving notifications, please do the following:
I just started using Zelle, where is my money?
It is important that your senders know which email address or mobile number you have enrolled with. Money must be sent to a registered email address or mobile number. If you get a notification from Zelle/ClearXchange that someone has sent you money, you must register the email address or mobile number that the notification was sent to. It is also important to note that when you register, it may take between 1 and 3 business days to receive your first payment.
We encourage you to share your feedback and experience here in community like member “Navy EOD” who has used Zelle successfully to send money!
