Zelle for Small Business Study


After much anticipation, Zelle® is now servicing small businesses.

Barlow Research will evaluate these institutions*

  • Getting started with Zelle® (i.e. linking bank account to phone number / email address)
  • Capabilities to send, receive, request, etc.
  • Adding payees
  • Dollar limits and fees
  • Communications and notifications (i.e. when sending or receiving funds)
  • Error resolution approach and communications
  • Advertisements for Zelle®
  • Competitors to Zelle®
  • Highlights and opportunities


Study deliverables include:

  • Summary report
  • Narrated customer experience videos

Deliverables are scheduled for completion Fall 2019
