Zelle® is a fast, safe and easy way to send money directly between almost any bank or credit union account in the U.S., typically within minutes1. With just an email address or U.S. mobile phone number, you can send money to people you trust, regardless of where they bank1.
You can send, request, or receive money with Zelle®. To get started, log into your Century Bank online banking and/or mobile app and select “Send Money with Zelle® . Enter your email address or U.S. mobile phone number, receive a one-time verification code, enter it, accept terms and conditions, and you’re ready to start sending and receiving with Zelle®.
To send money using Zelle®, simply select someone from your mobile device’s contacts (or add a trusted recipient’s email address or U.S. mobile phone number), add the amount you’d like to send and an optional note, review, then hit “Send.” In most cases, the money is available to your recipient in minutes1.
To request money using Zelle®, choose “Request,” select the individual from whom you’d like to request money, enter the amount you’d like, include an optional note, review and hit “Request”. If the person you are requesting money from is not yet enrolled with Zelle®, you must use their email address to request money. If the person has enrolled their U.S. mobile number, then you can send the request using their mobile phone number.
To receive money, just share your enrolled email address or U.S. mobile phone number with a friend and ask them to send you money with Zelle®. If you have already enrolled with Zelle®, you do not need to take any further action. The money will be sent directly into your Century Bank account, typically within minutes1.
It’s easy — Zelle® is already available within the Century Bank mobile app and online banking! Check our app or sign-in online and follow a few simple steps to enroll with Zelle® today.
Your email address or U.S. mobile phone number may already be enrolled with Zelle® at another bank or credit union. Call our customer support team and ask them to move your email address or U.S. mobile phone number to Century Bank so you can use it for Zelle®.
Once customer support moves your email address or U.S. mobile phone number, it will be connected to your Century Bank account so you can start sending and receiving money with Zelle® through the Century Bank mobile app and online banking. Please call Century Bank's customer support toll-free at 877.424.2828 for help.
When you enroll with Zelle® through the Century Bank app, your name, the name of your bank/credit union, and the email address or U.S. mobile number you enrolled is shared with Zelle® (no sensitive account details are shared – those stay with Century Bank. When someone sends money to your enrolled email address or U.S. mobile number, Zelle® looks up the email address or mobile number in its “directory” and notifies Century Bank of the incoming payment. Century Bank then directs the payment into your Century Bank account, all while keeping your sensitive account details private.
Keeping your money and information safe is a top priority for Century Bank. When you use Zelle® within our mobile app or online banking, your information is protected with the same technology we use to keep your Century Bank account safe.
You can send money to friends, family and others you trust1 even if they have a different bank or credit union.
