Uncovering Zelle® for Small Business: Functionality and Customer Experience


Zelle for Small Business Study

Background

Digital payments are a mass market product, and many small businesses ($100K- <$10MM in annual sales) are familiar with the benefits of online bill pay, ACH and wires. Today, while several financial institutions (FIs) have made Zelle® available via small business online and mobile banking, adoption growth continues to be slow. Additionally, many FIs are struggling with how Zelle® fits into their payment ecosystem. With a multitude of payment vehicles to choose from, Zelle® adoption may become stagnant among small businesses unless FIs can clearly educate their customers about the value proposition of Zelle®.
