Can I send Money to Myself with Zelle (Yes, Here is How)

Are you wondering, if you can send money to yourself using Zelle from your one bank account to another bank account?

Well, if yes, you have reached to the right web page.

Here in this post, we have discussed whether you can Zelle yourself or not, which you can, but there is a catch.

So, let’s get started and get into the details.

Zelle is a P2P free payment’s app that lets you send money to anyone using it. The best part of using Zelle is that money is transferred directly from your account to the recipient’s bank account. Zelle doesn’t store the money in the middle like other payment apps such as Cash App, Venmo, etc.

Sending money via Zelle is really simple, you just need to know the recipient’s phone number or email address associated with their Zelle account. In short, you don’t need to know and enter the person’s bank account details to send money.

Zelle was made by some of the largest banks such as banks Bank of America, BB&T, Capital One, JPMorgan Chase, PNC Bank, U.S. Bank, and Wells Fargo, etc.

However, now it has partnered with over a thousand banks across the U.S.

Setting up Zelle is simple, you just need to enter your personal and bank details, and you are good to go. And the best part is that you don’t even need to download a separate Zelle app, as most bank apps already have Zelle integrated within their mobile banking apps.

Well, sending money to someone is pretty simple and quick, but as you are here to know how to use Zelle to send money to yourself, let’s discuss that.

Can I send money to myself with Zelle/ Can I use Zelle to send money to my other bank account?

Technically, you can send or transfer money with Zelle to yourself from your one bank account to another bank account. However, but you must have a different email address or U.S. mobile number linked to each account you enroll with Zelle.

In simple words, your both bank accounts must be connected with a different phone number or email address if you want to send money from your one bank to another using Zelle.

When you send money to someone using Zelle, you just need their phone number or email linked with their Zelle. You don’t need to know their bank account details.

SECURITY

So, similar is the case when you want to send money to your other bank using Zelle. You just need to have a different email or phone number linked with Zelle on your other bank account, then only it will be possible for you to send money via Zelle from one bank account to another.

If you already have different phone numbers or emails linked to your different accounts, you can easily transfer money between them using Zelle as you would normally do to send money to someone else.

In case you try to use the same email address or mobile phone number to enroll with Zelle at multiple banks, you will receive an error message.

Final words

Zelle can be really handy in sending or receiving the money to and from someone, respectively. However, it can be really an issue for many to Zelle themselves, as most people have only one primary mobile number or email.

But, as discussed above in the post, you can only link your one bank account with Zelle using phone or email at a time.

If you have multiple bank accounts, you will need a different phone or email to link all accounts with Zelle simultaneously.

In case you already have different numbers linked with Zelle for different bank accounts, you can easily send or transfer money between them using Zelle as a medium.
