Frequently Asked Questions
How do I enroll and use Zelle®?
You can send, request, or receive money with Zelle®
- To get started, log in to online banking or our mobile banking app and navigate to the Send Money with Zelle®. To enroll, accept terms and conditions, tell us your email address or mobile number and deposit account, and then you will receive a one-time verification code. Enter it and you’re ready to start sending and receiving with Zelle®.
- To send money using Zelle®, simply add a trusted recipient’s email address or mobile number, enter the amount you’d like to send and an optional note, review, then hit “Send.” In most cases, the money is available to your recipient in minutes if they are already enrolled in Zelle®
- To request money using Zelle®, choose “Request,” select the individual from whom you’d like to request money, enter the amount you’d like to request, include an optional note, review, and hit “Request.” If the person you are requesting money from is not yet enrolled with Zelle®, you must use their email address to request money. If the person has enrolled their mobile number, then you can send the request using their mobile number.
- To receive money, just share your enrolled email address or mobile number with a friend and ask them to send you money with Zelle®. If you have already enrolled with Zelle®, you do not need to take any further action. The money will be sent directly into your account, typically within minutes.
How do I receive money that someone sent me with Zelle®?
If you have already enrolled with Zelle®, you do not need to take any further action. The money will be sent directly into your bank account and will be available typically within minutes.
If you have not yet enrolled with Zelle®, follow these steps:
- Click on the link provided in the payment notification you received via email or text message.
- Select NexTier Bank.
- Follow the instructions provided on the page to enroll and receive your payment. Pay attention to the email address or mobile number when you receive the payment notification — you should enroll with Zelle® using that email address or mobile number where you received the notification to ensure you receive your money.
What if I get an error message when I try to enroll an email address or U.S. mobile number?
Your email address or mobile number may already be enrolled with Zelle® at another bank or credit union. Call our Customer Care Center at 1.800.262.1088 and ask them to move your email address or mobile number to NexTier Bank so you can use it for Zelle®.
Once our Customer Care Center moves your email address or mobile number, it will be connected to your NexTier Bank account so you can start sending and receiving money with Zelle® through the NexTier Bank Mobile Banking app and Online Banking.
Is my information secure?
Keeping your money and information safe is a top priority for NexTier Bank. When you use Zelle® within our mobile app or online banking, your information is protected with the same technology we use to keep your bank account safe.
Who can I send money to with Zelle®?
Zelle is a great way to send money to family, friends, and people you are familiar with such as your personal trainer, babysitter or neighbor1.
Since money is sent directly from your bank account to another person’s bank account within minutes1, Zelle® should only be used to send money to friends, family and others you trust.
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®. These transactions are potentially high risk (just like sending cash to a person you don’t know is high risk).
Neither NexTier Bank nor Zelle® offers purchase protection for 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.
What if I want to send money to someone whose financial institution doesn't offer Zelle®?
You can find a full list of participating banks and credit unions live with Zelle® at here.
If your recipient’s financial institution 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 mobile number and a Visa® or Mastercard® 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.
Can I use Zelle® internationally?
In order to use Zelle®, the sender and recipient’s bank accounts must be based in the U.S.
Can I cancel a payment?
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, you can go to your activity page, choose the payment you want to cancel, and then 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 mobile number when sending money.
If you sent money to the wrong person, please immediately call our Customer Care Center at 1.800.262.1088 so we can help you.
What are scheduled and recurring payments?
We offer you the flexibility to schedule payments to be sent at a later date if you like, or even set up recurring payments for things like regularly sending money to your college student.
Scheduled or recurring payments sent directly to your recipient’s account number (instead of an email address or mobile number) are made available by NexTier Bank but are a separate service from Zelle® and can take 1 – 3 business days to process. You can cancel a payment that is scheduled in advance if the money has not already been deducted from your account.
Are there any fees to send money using Zelle®?
No, NexTier Bank does not charge any fees to use Zelle®. Your mobile carrier’s messaging and data rates may apply.
NexTier Bank does not charge fees to send or receive money with Zelle®, but there is a fee to cancel a Zelle® transaction that is still pending because the recipient hasn’t yet enrolled. If the recipient doesn’t enroll in Zelle® within 14 days, the payment will naturally expire, the funds will be returned to your account, and no fees will be assessed.
Your mobile carrier’s messaging and data rages may apply.
Are there any limits for sending and receiving money with Zelle®?
The amount of money you can send, as well as the frequency, is set by each participating financial institution. To determine NexTier Bank’s send limits, call our Customer Care Center at 1.800.262.1088.
There are no limits to the amount of money you can receive with Zelle®. However, remember that the person sending you money will most likely have limits set by their own financial institution on the amount of money they can send you.
How do I use a Zelle® QR code?
Zelle® QR codes provide peace of mind knowing you can send money to the right person without typing an email address or mobile number. Find Zelle® in the NexTier Bank app, click “Send,” then click on the QR code icon displayed at the top of the “Recipients” screen. Your phone’s camera will open. To send money using a Zelle® QR code, simply point your camera at the recipient’s Zelle® QR code, enter the amount, and hit “Send,” and the money is on the way! When sending money to someone new, it’s always important to confirm the recipient is correct by reviewing the displayed name before sending money.
You can also locate your Zelle® QR code by opening the NexTier Bank app, navigating to “Send Money With Zelle®“, and clicking your Zelle® settings. From here, you can see your Zelle® QR code.
1U.S. checking or savings account required to use Zelle®. Transactions between enrolled users typically occur in minutes. To send or receive money with a small business, both parties must be enrolled with Zelle® directly through their financial institution’s online or mobile banking experience.
