Paying by Zelle

Using Zelle the First Time

Banks vary in how they present Zelle so be prepared to be a bit flexible.

  • Login to your account on your bank’s website
  • Locate the tab “Send Money with Zelle”
  • The first time you send funds to SEMCO you will need to complete “Add new recipient” as follows:
    Name = SouthEastern Michigan Computer Organization
  • Nickname = SEMCO
  • If your bank requires a First Name and Last Name, use Treasurer and SouthEastern Michigan Computer Organization
  • Email = and Save
  • Skip Mobile Number and click Add Recipient
  • Fill in the amount and what the payment is for, probably “SEMCO dues” and click Send.
  • If this is your first time using Zelle, your bank may require you to wait 24-hours before your transaction will go through. If this is the case, just leave the information, log out, wait the 24-hours and go back in, fill in any missing information and click Send. You should not have to wait on any subsequent uses of Zelle.

SEMCO only receives your name, the amount, and whatever you enter in the “For” field.
