What is Zelle®?
Zelle® is a fast and easy way for M&T customers to send money to almost anyone with a bank account in the U.S. With just an email address or U.S. mobile phone number you can now quickly and easily send money.
Who can I send money to using Zelle®?
With Zelle® you can send money to almost anyone you know and trust with a bank account in the U.S. You can send money directly from the M&T Mobile Banking app or in Online Banking.
What should Zelle® be used for?
Zelle® is a great way to send money to family, friends, and people that you are familiar with such as your personal trainer, babysitter or a neighbor.
If you don't know the person, or aren't sure you will get what you paid for (for example, items bought from an on-line bidding or sales site), we recommend you do not use Zelle® for these types of transactions. Neither M&T nor Zelle® offers 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.
