Zelle® is a fast, safe and easy way to send and receive money with friends and family who have a U.S.-based checking or savings account – typically in minutes when both users are already enrolled. With just an email address or U.S. mobile number, you can send money to people you know and trust, regardless of where they bank.
Three Options to Use Zelle
Select someone from your mobile device’s contacts (or add a trusted recipient’s email address or U.S. mobile phone number), add the amount you’d like to send and an optional memo, review, then hit “Send.”
Send your friend a request and a way to pay you back directly with Zelle. Just enter their U.S. mobile number or email address, the amount they owe you, and hit send (if your friend isn’t enrolled yet, you can only send a request using their email address). When your friend responds, the money will appear in your WSFS Bank account.
Zelle makes it easy to quickly split the cost of the bill with a built-in calculator. Just tap the ‘split’ button, select the people in your group and enter the total amount you want to split. Zelle sends a request to everyone for their share (if your friend isn’t enrolled yet, you can only send a request using their email address).

How do I use Zelle?
To send money using Zelle, simply select someone from your mobile device’s contacts (or add a trusted recipient’s email address or U.S. mobile phone number), add 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.
To request money using Zelle, choose “Request,” select the individual(s) from whom you’d like to request money, enter the amount you’d like to request, include an optional note, review and hit “Request”.
To receive money, just share your enrolled email address or U.S. mobile phone number with a friend and ask them to send you money with Zelle.
Someone sent me money with Zelle, how do I receive it?
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 WSFS Bank.
- Follow the instructions provided on the page to enroll and receive your payment. Pay attention to the email address or U.S. mobile number where you received the payment notification – you should enroll with Zelle using that email address or U.S. mobile number to ensure you receive your money.
What types of payments can I make with Zelle?
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 friends, family and others you trust.
Neither Zelle nor WSFS Bank offer 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.
