If the small business or consumer you send money to has already enrolled with Zelle® through their banking app, the money is sent directly to their bank account and cannot be canceled. 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.

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
To determine whether your small business account is eligible to enroll with Zelle®, please log into the Primis app and select "Send Money With Zelle®". If you are able to enroll with Zelle® using your small business account, then your small business is eligible to use Zelle® with Primis.
Please call Primis at 1-833-477-4647 so we can help you.
In order to use Zelle®, the sender and recipient’s bank or credit union accounts must be based in the U.S.
You can only cancel a payment if the small business or consumer 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 you do not see this option available, please contact our customer support team at 1-833-477-4647 for assistance with canceling the pending payment.
If you send money to a small business or consumer that has already enrolled with Zelle® through their bank or credit union's mobile app, 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 know and trust, and always ensure you've used the correct email address or U.S. mobile number when sending money.
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.
If you sent money to the wrong person, please immediately call our customer support team at 1-833-477-4647 so we can help you.
