QUONTIC BANK JOINS ZELLE NETWORK® TO GIVE CUSTOMERS A NEW WAY TO PAY
The New York-based financial institution will be an early adopter of Zelle®, to enable consumers to send fast person-to-person payments to nearly anyone with a U.S. bank account.
NEW YORK-Quontic Bank announced today that it will join Early Warning’s Zelle Network to offer customers a fast, safe and easy way to make person-to-person (P2P) payments. Quontic Bank will be among the first community banks to launch Zelle, thanks to its partnership with global financial services provider, FIS.
Zelle will be embedded in the Quontic Bank mobile app in Q1 2018, providing Quontic Bank customers access to fast and easy payments. Zelle allows for funds to be sent from one bank account to another typically within minutes, when both parties are enrolled, using only a recipient’s email address or mobile number.

“Working with Quontic Bank is in line with our strategy to provide a fast and ubiquitous P2P payments solution for financial institutions of all sizes,” said Lou Anne Alexander, group president, payments Early Warning. “Zelle and Quontic Bank will continue to help make customers’ financial lives easier by providing fast, safe and convenient payment options with their friends and family.”
The “Send Money with Zelle®” feature will be conveniently available in the Quontic Bank Mobile app early next year. Zelle makes digital payments an easy, fast and safe alternative to checks and cash for the 86 million mobile banking customers with access to the Zelle Network.
