To enroll with the Zelle app, your recipient will enter their basic contact information, an email address and U.S. 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.

When you enroll with Zelle through your banking app, your name, your financial institution's name, and the email address or U.S. mobile number you enrolled is shared with Zelle (no sensitive account details are shared – those stay with Bank of Albuquerque). When someone sends money to your enrolled email address or U.S. mobile phone number, Zelle looks up the email address or mobile number in its "directory" and notifies us of the incoming payment. Bank of Albuquerque then directs the payment into your enrolled bank 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, 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 U.S. mobile number when sending money.
