In today’s technologically-driven world, transferring money by cash, check, bank draft, or money order will make anyone feel like they have traveled back into the dark ages. While these traditional methods may appear less popular, especially in the presence of instant money transfer apps like Venmo, Zelle, or CashApp, that doesn't mean the old ways are not still viable options. Additionally, if cost is a pain point for you, there are inexpensive ways of transferring money, and the cheapest method may vary depending upon your circumstances.
In this blog, we will try to give you a good idea of what to expect and how Zolve plays a role in making the process easier for you. Read on to learn more about using Zolve to transfer money within the US and how you can make the most of your money!
How do money transfers work in the US?
If you are moving to the US soon or have just moved there and want to know how domestic transfers work, here is everything you need to know. There are three ways to transfer money:
An ACH (automated clearing house) is an electronic payment method made between banks for payment purposes. It enables day-to-day transactions and usually takes 2-3 business days to process your money to the receiving bank. With ACH transfer, you incur zero fees, and it comes with an inward limit of $65000 monthly and an outer limit of $10000/monthly and daily.
ACH bank transfers are used for many purposes, such as direct deposits of paychecks, debts for regular payments, and money transfers. To do an ACH transfer, you will need to provide the account holder's name, the routing number, the ABA number, the account number, and the amount to be transferred.
How does Zolve fit in?
Since Zolve supports outgoing ACH transfers, all you need to do is:
- Go to Bank - > My cards -> Select Credit card -> Pay Now
- Click on Link New Account
- Select Zolve Direct / Zolve Micro
For Zolve Micro:

P2P, or peer-to-peer transfer, is a process through which the user can instantly transfer funds from his bank account to another individual's account. In layman’s terms, P2P payments are used in apps where users can send and receive money from their mobile devices through a linked bank account or card.
For this kind of transfer, you don’t need to incur any extra cost, and the daily limit is set at $10,000/ day and $45/000 a month.
Wire transfers usually help transfer large sums of money from one account to another. It usually takes 2-3 days, and you have to pay a charge of $15 - $25 as charges with the source bank. It has an inward limit of $65,000 monthly and daily.
