Digital Disbursements - Zelle

  • 1.  Digital Disbursements - Zelle

    Has anyone implemented digital disbursements, such as a Zelle, resulting in the creation of a new EFT file format? It looks like I will need to create the file format from scratch and thought I would check to see if anyone has already done this?

    Hi @Melissa Hyman

    GP has out-of-the-box functionality for paying with EFT so you may not need to purchase something like Zelle.

    EFT functionality is super awesome in GP and it does start out with the EFT file format.

    Microsoft went a long way for users by setting up already established "normal" EFT formats for you guys - you just have to ask your bank/banks which formats they use and make a few tweaks.

    There are some webinars out there on how to set this up and I'm doing a session at the User Conference in Orlando on this subject as well.

    Feel free to reach out if you have any questions... pro bono as you are with Wounded Warrior and that is an entity near and dear to me.​

    Thank you for the feedback. We do use EFT functionality within GP for processing ACH payments. However, we need to utilize Zelle for a separate business need, which requires a different file format than the standard NACHA file format.

    Hello @Melissa Hyman,
    EFT for Payables supports a User-Defined ​format. Once you receive the file specification from Zelle this format enables you to define the exact format Zelle (or anyone else for that matter) requires.
