Transfers require enrollment in the service and must be made from an eligible Bank of America consumer or business deposit account to a domestic bank account or consumer debit card. Recipients have 14 days to enroll to receive money or the transfer will be canceled. Transactions typically occur in minutes when the recipient’s email address or U.S. mobile number is already enrolled with Zelle. We will send you an email alert with transaction details after you send money using Zelle. Dollar and frequency limits apply. See the Online Banking Service Agreement at bankofamerica.com/serviceagreement for further details. Data connection required. Message and data rates may apply.
