With just a few taps on your phone or mobile device, many people are finding it easier to send money to friends and family through person-to-person payment services. Now through Bank of Hawaii’s mobile banking app, you can send and receive money to anyone with a bank account in the country through Zelle — a fast, safe and easy payment option.

Zelle is embedded directly into the Bank of Hawaii mobile app and allows people to send and receive payments typically available within minutes when both parties are already enrolled with Zelle. For more than 100-million consumers, Zelle is already available from the convenience of their mobile banking app, allowing them to send payments to people who bank at different financial institutions in the U.S.

Person‐to‐person payments (P2P) like Zelle are a convenient way to send money electronically to people you trust without ever having to write a check or give cash. P2P allows you to split a check, pool money together, or send money to your niece or nephew for a special occasion.

Customers who already have the Bank of Hawaii mobile app only need to update to the latest version to use Zelle. Payments can be sent using only an email address or U.S. mobile phone number.

The benefit to using Zelle within the Bank of Hawaii mobile app is that its customers already have an existing, trusted relationship with the bank. It’s convenient because there’s also no need for users to download a separate P2P app to send and receive money. It’s all there for you in one spot, allowing you to access funds typically within minutes when both parties are already registered.

To use Zelle, follow these easy steps:

1) Download the Bank of Hawaii mobile app on your smartphone.

2) Enroll. Add your U.S. mobile number or email address with your bank account to start sending and receiving money.

3) Send and receive money. Select a contact, or add your trusted recipient’s U.S. mobile number or email address, and enter an amount to send. In addition to sending and receiving payments, you can also “split” a payment.

Bank of Hawaii encrypts your financial data when you use Zelle, providing an added layer of security. Consumers should also remember to use good judgement, which means not sending money to strangers or people they don’t know well. You should only send and receive money from people you know and trust. It’s also important to always double check your recipient’s information before you send a payment.
