By participating as a User, you represent that you are the owner of the email address, mobile phone number, and/or other alias you enrolled, or that you have the delegated legal authority to act on behalf of the owner of such email address, mobile phone number and/or other alias to send or receive money as described in this Agreement. You consent to the receipt of emails or text messages from us, from Zelle, from other Users that are sending you money or requesting money from you, and from other Network Banks or their agents regarding the Services or related transfers between Network Banks and you. You agree that we may, Zelle may or either of our agents may use automatic telephone dialing systems in connection with text messages sent to any mobile phone number you enroll. You further acknowledge and agree:

  1. You are responsible for any fees or other charges that your wireless carrier may charge for any related data, text or other message services, including, without limitation, for short message service. Please check your mobile service agreement for details or applicable fees.
  2. You will immediately notify us if any email address or mobile phone number you have enrolled is (i) surrendered by you or (ii) changed by you.
  3. In the case of any messages that you may send through either us or Zelle or that we may send or Zelle may send on your behalf to an email address or mobile phone number, you represent that you have obtained the consent of the recipient of such emails or automated text messages to send such emails or text messages to the recipient.

8. Receiving Money; Money Transfers by Network Banks

Once a User initiates a transfer of money to your email address or mobile phone number enrolled with the Service, you have no ability to stop the transfer. By using the Service, you agree and authorize us to initiate credit entries to the bank account you have enrolled.

Most transfers of money to you from other Users will occur within minutes. There may be other circumstances when the payment may take longer. For example, in order to protect you, us, Zelle and the other Network Banks, we may need or Zelle may need additional time to verify your identity or the identity of the person sending the money. We may also delay or block the transfer to prevent fraud or to meet our regulatory obligations. If we delay or block a payment that you have initiated through a request for money, we will notify you in accordance with your User preferences (i.e. email, push notification).

If you are receiving a payment from a business or government agency, your payment will be delivered in accordance with both this Agreement and the procedures of the business or government agency that is sending you the payment.

9. Sending Money; Debits by Network Banks

You may send money to another User at your initiation or in response to that User’s request for money. You understand that use of this Service by you shall at all times be subject to (i) this Agreement and (ii) your express authorization at the time of the transaction for us to initiate a debit entry to your bank account. You understand that when you send the payment, you will have no ability to stop it. You may only cancel a payment if the person to whom you sent the money has not yet enrolled in the Service. If the person you sent money to has already enrolled with Zelle, either in the Zelle mobile app or with a Network Bank, the money is sent directly to their bank account (except as otherwise provided below) and may not be canceled or revoked.

In most cases, when you are sending money to another User, the transfer will occur in minutes; however, there are circumstances when the payment may take longer. For example, in order to protect you, us, Zelle and the other Network Banks, we may need additional time to verify your identity or the identity of the person receiving the money. If you are sending money to someone who has not enrolled as a User with Zelle, either in the Zelle mobile app or with a Network Bank, they will receive a text or email notification instructing them on how to enroll to receive the money. You understand and acknowledge that a person to whom you are sending money and who is not enrolling as a User may fail to enroll with Zelle, or otherwise ignore the payment notification, and the transfer may not occur.

The money may also be delayed, or the transfer may be blocked to prevent fraud or comply with regulatory requirements. If we delay or block a payment that you have initiated, we will notify you in accordance with your User preferences (i.e. email, push notification).

We have no control over the actions of other Users, other Network Banks or other financial institutions that could delay or prevent your money from being delivered to the intended User.

10. Liability

Neither we nor Zelle shall have liability to you for any transfers of money, including, without limitation, (i) any failure, through no fault of us or Zelle, to complete a transaction in the correct amount, or (ii) any related losses or damages. Neither we nor Zelle shall be liable for any typos or keystroke errors that you may make when using the Service.

THE SERVICE IS INTENDED FOR SENDING MONEY TO FAMILY, FRIENDS AND OTHERS WHOM YOU TRUST. YOU SHOULD NOT USE ZELLE TO SEND MONEY TO PERSONS WITH WHOM YOU ARE NOT FAMILIAR OR YOU DO NOT TRUST. ZELLE DOES NOT OFFER A PROTECTION PROGRAM FOR AUTHORIZED PAYMENTS MADE THROUGH THE SERVICE (FOR EXAMPLE, IF YOU DO NOT RECEIVE THE GOODS OR SERVICES THAT YOU PAID FOR, OR THE GOODS OR SERVICES THAT YOU RECEIVED ARE DAMAGED OR ARE OTHERWISE NOT WHAT YOU EXPECTED). 

11. Send Limits

There are daily limits on the amount of money you can send through Zelle. Your limits may be adjusted from time to-time at the bank’s sole discretion.

12. Requesting Money

You may request money from another User. You understand and acknowledge that Users to whom you send payment requests may reject or ignore your request. Neither we nor Zelle guarantee that you will receive money from other Users by sending a payment request, or that you will receive the amount that you request. Neither we nor Zelle accept responsibility if the other User rejects or ignores your request or sends you an amount that is less than you request. If a User ignores your request, we may decide or Zelle may decide, in our sole discretion, that we will not send a reminder or repeat request to that User.

By accepting this Agreement, you agree that you are not engaging in the business of debt collection by attempting to use the Service to request money for the payment or collection of an overdue or delinquent debt; to request money that is owed to another person; or to collect any amounts that are owed pursuant to a court order. You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Zelle, its owners, directors, officers agents and Network Banks, including us, from and against all claims, losses, expenses, damages and costs (including, but not limited to, direct, incidental, consequential, exemplary and indirect damages), and reasonable attorneys' fees, resulting from or arising out of any request for money that you send that is related to overdue or delinquent amounts.

You agree to receive money requests from other Users, and to only send requests for legitimate and lawful purposes. Requests for money are solely between the sender and recipient and are not reviewed or verified by us or by Zelle. Neither we nor Zelle assume responsibility for the accuracy or legality of such requests and do not act as a debt collector on your behalf or on behalf of the sender of a request for money.

We reserve the right, but assume no obligation, to terminate your ability to send requests for money in general, or to specific recipients, if we deem such requests to be potentially unlawful, abusive, offensive or unwelcome by the recipient.

13. Transaction Errors

In case of errors or questions about your electronic fund transfers, call us at (866)616-6020 or write to:    

Ameris Bank

Attn: Electronic Banking Dept

PO Box 105075

Atlanta, GA 30348

or use the current information on your most recent account statement.

Notification should be made as soon as possible if you think your statement or receipt is wrong or if you need more information about a transaction listed on the statement or receipt. You must contact Ameris Bank no later than 60 days after we sent you the first statement on which the problem or error appears. You must be prepared to provide the following information:

  • Your name and account number.
  • A description of the error or transaction you are unsure about along with an explanation as to why you believe it is an error or why you need more information.
  • The dollar amount of the suspected error.

If you provide oral notice, you may be required to send in your complaint or question in writing within ten (10) business days.

We will determine whether an error occurred within ten (10) business days (twenty (20) business days for new accounts) after we hear from you and will correct any error promptly. If we need more time, however, we may take up to forty-five (45) days (ninety (90) days for new accounts and foreign initiated or Point of Sale transfers) to investigate your complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will credit your account within ten (10) business days (twenty (20) business days for new accounts) for the amount which you think is in error, so that you will have the use of the money during the time it takes to complete our investigation. If we ask you to put your complaint or question in writing and we do not receive it within ten (10) business days, we may not credit your account. The extended time periods for new accounts apply to all electronic fund transfers that occur within the first thirty (30) days after the first deposit to the account is made, including those for foreign initiated or Point of Sale transactions.

We will tell you the results within three (3) business days after completing our investigation. If we decide that there was no error, we will send you a written explanation.

You may ask for copies of the documents that we used in our investigation.

14. Your Liability for Unauthorized Transfers

If your statement shows transfers you did not make, including those made by card, code, or other means, tell us at once. If you do not tell us within sixty (60) days after the statement was transmitted to you, you may not receive back any money you lost after the sixty (60) days, and therefore, you could lose all the money in your account (plus your maximum overdraft line of credit, if applicable), if we can prove that we could have stopped someone from taking the money had you given us notice in time. If a good reason (such as a long trip or hospital stay) keeps you from giving the notice, we will extend the time periods.

15. Liability for Failure to Complete Transfers

If we do not complete a transfer to or from your account on time or in the correct amount according to our agreement with you, we will be liable for your losses or damages as provided by law. However, there are some exceptions. We will NOT be liable, for instance:

  • If through no fault of ours, you do not have enough money in your account to make the transfer.
  • If the transfer would result in your exceeding the credit limit on your line of credit, if you have one.
  • If the electronic terminal was not working properly and you knew about the breakdown before you started the transfer.
  • If circumstances beyond our control (such as fire or flood, computer or machine breakdown, or failure or interruption of communications facilities) prevent the transfer, despite reasonable precautions we have taken.
  • If we have terminated our Agreement with you.
  • If we receive inaccurate or incomplete information needed to complete a transaction.
  • In the case of preauthorized transfers, we will not be liable where there is a breakdown of the system which would normally handle the transfer.
  • If the funds in the account are subject to legal action preventing a transfer to or from your account.

16. Fees

Zelle for consumer accounts is a free service. In addition, any other fees and charges shown in the Deposit Account Agreement, Truth in Savings Disclosure, or our Miscellaneous Services Pricing Guide may apply, including overdraft charges and withdrawal fees for accounts subject to transaction limitations. Fees are reviewed periodically and are subject to change. You will be notified of any increase in fees at least thirty (30) days prior to the change taking effect.

17. Use of Our On-line Banking Site and/or Mobile App

You agree to access this website and/or mobile app in compliance with our Personal Online Banking Disclosure, which is available at  https://www.amerisbank.com/About/Information/Notices-Disclosures/Personal-Online-Banking-Disclosure, and our Mobile Banking Agreement, which is available at https://www.amerisbank.com/About/Information/Notices-Disclosures/Mobile-Banking-Agreement, each of which is incorporated into and made part of this Agreement by this reference.

18. Cancellation of the Service

You may terminate your use of Zelle at any time by writing to us at Ameris Bank, Zelle Support, PO Box 105075, Atlanta GA 30348 or by sending us a secure message using our Online Banking Message Center. You must notify us at least ten (10) business days prior to the date on which you wish to have your Service terminated. If you have scheduled payments with a transaction date within this ten (10) business day period, you also must separately cancel those payments. If we have not completed processing of your termination request and you have not otherwise canceled a payment, you will be responsible for payments with transaction dates during the ten (10) business days following our receipt of your written notice of termination. We may terminate your use of the Service, in whole or in part, at any time without prior notice. Termination will not affect your liability or obligations under this Agreement for transactions we have processed on your behalf.

19. Right to Terminate Access
