Accounts, Banking, Budgeting

Zelle logoZelle® will enable Texas First Bank customers to make fast, safe, and easy digital payments to those they know and trust with a bank account in the United States.

“Texas First Bank prides itself on being a local community bank that is invested in personal experiences and providing quality technology to our customers. We are excited to start offering Zelle®, as we have heard how our customers love the ease of use and ability to send money quickly and safely to friends, family, and people they trust,” said Christopher Doyle, President and CEO of Texas First Bank. “We know our customer experience will be greatly enhanced with Zelle® now being embedded in our mobile app, putting the benefits of the tool mere clicks away.”

As of May 17th, 2022, Zelle® will replace the current Pay-Up service in the bank’s mobile app and online banking platform.

Money sent with Zelle® goes directly from one bank account in the U.S. to another, using only a recipient’s email address or U.S. mobile number. Funds are typically available within minutes when both parties are already enrolled with Zelle®. Consumers who are not enrolled can enroll, even if their financial institution does not participate. Consumers should only use Zelle® to send and receive money with friends, family, and people they know and trust.
