Do you know you can cancel a Zelle payment if it’s still on pend? Continue reading to find out how.


Canceling a payment is the ideal option to resort to if you notice you’ve fallen for a scam or changed your decision about making a payment.

However, just like it applies to cancel a payment on PayPal, payment can only be canceled if the recipient hasn’t been enrolled in Zelle.

So, if the payment status has already been completed; there’s no way to cancel your payment.

You can only resort to filing a dispute from your bank, requesting a refund, or sending the recipient a mail.

Without wasting much time, let’s see how to Cancel a Zelle payment on chase, bank of America, and other supported banks.
