  3. Follow the instructions provided on the page to enroll and receive your money. Pay attention to the email address or U.S. mobile phone number where you received the payment notification.

Since money is sent directly from your bank account to another person's bank account within minutes,* Zelle® should only be used to send money to people you trust. 

Neither WyHy Federal Credit Union, nor Zelle®, offers a protection program for any authorized payments made with Zelle®--for example, if you do not receive the item you paid for or the item is not as described or as you expected. 

You can find the full list of participating banks and credit unions live with Zelle® here.

If your recipient's bank or credit union isn't on the list, don't worry! The list of participating financial institutions is always growing, and your recipient can still use Zelle® by downloading the Zelle® app for Android and iOS. 

To enroll with the Zelle® app, your recipient will enter their basic contact information, an email address, and U.S. mobile number, and a debit card with a U.S.-based account (does not include U.S. territories). Zelle® does not accept debit cards associated with international deposit accounts or any credit cards. 

When you enroll with Zelle® through your banking app, your name, your financial institution's name, and the email address or U.S. mobile phone number you enrolled with is shared with Zelle® (no sensitive details are shared--those stay with your bank or credit union).

When someone sends money to your enrolled email address or U.S. mobile phone number, Zelle® looks up that information in its "directory" and notifies your financial institution of the incoming payment. Your bank or credit union then directs the payment into your account, all while keeping your sensitive account details private. 

In order to use Zelle®, the sender and recipient's bank accounts must be based in the U.S.

You can only cancel a payment if the person you sent money to hasn't yet enrolled with Zelle®.

To check whether the payment is still pending because the recipient hasn't yet enrolled:

  1. Go to your activity page.
  2. Choose the payment you want to cancel
  3. Select, "Cancel This Payment." '

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 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, call the Zelle® customer support team at 800.593.2274.

 

Money sent with Zelle® is typically available to an enrolled recipient within minutes.*

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 to your recipient's account, typically within minutes.*

If your payment is 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.

Keeping your money and information safe is a top priority. When you use Zelle® within your WyHy Digital: Online and Mobile Banking app, your information is protected with the same technology we use to keep your bank account safe.

If you don't know the person, or aren't sure you will get what you paid for (for example, items bought from an online bidding or sales site), you should not use Zelle® for these types of transactions. 

These transactions are potentially high risk (just like sending cash to a person you don't know is high risk). Neither WyHy Federal Credit Union nor Zelle® offers a protection program for any authorized payments made with Zelle®--for example, if you do not receive the item you paid for or the item is not as described or as you expected. 

Your email address or U.S. mobile phone number may already be enrolled with Zelle® at another bank or credit union. Call the Zelle® customer support team at 800.593.2274 and ask to move your email address or U.S. mobile phone number from the financial institution where you initially enrolled to your WyHy Federal Credit Union account so you can use it for Zelle®.

Once customer support moves your email address or U.S. mobile phone number, it will be connected to your WyHy Federal Credit Union account so you can start sending and receiving money with Zelle®.

Some small businesses are able to receive payments with Zelle®. Ask your favorite small business if they accept payments this way. If they do, you can pay them directly from your mobile banking app using just their email address or U.S. mobile phone number.

Neither WyHy Federal Credit Union nor Zelle® offers a protection program for any authorized payments made with Zelle®. You should only send money to people (and small businesses) you trust. Also, always ensure you've used the correct email and U.S. mobile phone number when sending money.

* Transactions typically occur in minutes when the recipient’s email address or U.S. mobile number is already enrolled with Zelle®.
