You can send money to any business or individual that is enrolled or will enroll in Zelle®1 at their financial institution. 

Whether you use Zelle® with a business account or a consumer account, Zelle® uses the same network to initiate payments to small businesses and consumers. Consumers who are already enrolled with Zelle® through their banking app don’t need to do anything different to send money to a small business. The experience is slightly different for small businesses, as small businesses cannot currently send payments to or receive payments from consumers who are only enrolled in the Zelle® app.1 

Comerica small business customers are not charged any fees for using Zelle®. Transaction fees may apply depending on the account type. 

All business checking, savings and money market investment accounts are currently eligible to send and receive money with Zelle®.1 Note that sending money with Zelle® from your savings account or money market account counts toward the six free transfers or withdraws per month.

No, Zelle® does not integrate directly with accounting software at this time. However, since Zelle® is connected to your bank account, you can see all Zelle® transactions in Comerica Web Banking and download a report to integrate into your existing software. To download your transactions from Web Banking, go to the Accounts tab and Export Transactions, and select the account, date range, and report format.

There are a few ways you can encourage your customers to pay you with Zelle®:

  • Tell your customers that you accept Zelle® payments and they can easily send you money right from their banking app.
  • Include it as a payment method on your invoices, such as “We accept payments with Zelle®”.
  • Use Zelle® to request money from your customers, which will send them a notification telling them you’ve requested payment with Zelle®.2
  • Download Zelle® marketing assets for free from zellepay.com(Opens a new window) and add them to your website, social media and more!
  • Please note, you'll only be able to receive payments from consumers using Zelle® through their financial institution's banking app. You will not be able to receive payments from consumers enrolled in the Zelle® app.
  • You can only cancel a payment if the small business or consumer you sent money to hasn’t yet enrolled with Zelle®. Go to your activity page, and if the payment you want to cancel is pending, choose the payment and select “Cancel This Payment.”
  • If you send money to a small business or consumer that is enrolled in Zelle® through their bank or credit union's mobile app, the money is sent directly to their bank account and it cannot be canceled. This is why it’s important to ensure you’ve used the correct email address or U.S. mobile number.
  • If you sent money to the wrong person, please immediately call our customer support team 888-444-9876 so we can help you.
  • If you try to send money to a consumer who is enrolled in the Zelle® app, the payment won’t go through, and a message will pop up to let you know the payment cannot be completed. With small business accounts, Zelle® does not currently support sending or receiving money to users enrolled in the Zelle® app.
  • 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 the money sent is above our daily limit of "In Minutes" Zelle® transactions, your payment may default to "Standard Delivery" and take 1-3 days.

Neither Comerica 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.

Keeping your money and information safe is a top priority for Comerica. When you use Zelle® within our online banking or mobile app, your information is protected with the same technology we use to keep your Comerica account safe. When you send with Zelle® in Comerica Web Banking or Comerica Mobile Banking app, a one-time passcode (OTP) request is required to help protect your security. These SMS (text) or email message messages will now contain:

  • Comerica Bank
  • Instructions not to share the OTP
  • Confirmation that the OTP is exclusive to Zelle®
  • Assurnace that we will never request the code via call or text
  • You can request payments directly through your Comerica Web Banking or Mobile Banking app by clicking “Send money with Zelle®,” selecting “Request,” entering your customer’s email address or U.S. mobile number, confirming the information is correct and tapping “Request”.2
  • If your customer is using Zelle® through their bank’s mobile app, they’ll be able to pay you with Zelle®. You’ll receive a payment notification once your customer has sent you money in response to your request.

As of October 30, 2023, toll-free numbers (those starting with 800, 833, 844, 855, 866, 877 or 888) are not allowed for registration and cannot be added as a recipient. Any existing toll-free numbers that are already registered with the Zelle Network® will be restricted the next time the user logs in.
