Insights on Zelle from the Levvel Financial Services Team


July 11, 2017



Zelle, a new peer-to-peer (P2P) payments service backed by over 30 major U.S. banks, is generating a lot of buzz as of late. But what exactly is Zelle, and how is it any different from Venmo and other P2P payment services?


As a veteran of the financial services and payments industries, I recently wrote an article for the Let’s Talk Payments website to answer these and other common questions on Zelle, such as:

  • Is this the end of Venmo and Square Cash?
  • What technology is powering Zelle’s engine?
  • What is Zelle’s impact on P2P and real-time payments?
  • How does Zelle affect my business? Why should I consider (or reconsider) it?
  • How might Zelle be used in the future?

Read the full article on the Let’s Talk Payments website to learn more about how Zelle is disrupting the payments industry and the effects it will have on your business and your relationship with your customers.
