4 charts on Zelle outperforming Venmo in the U.S. immigrant community

Immigrants struggle with access to the financial system. Often, they cobble together piecemeal solutions to help with their specific needs. They turn to payment firms like Zelle and Venmo to help them move money around to friends and family.

Zelle is more popular than Venmo with immigrants in the U.S.. 2.3x more immigrants use Zelle over Venmo, according to research from immigrant lender, Stilt.

Stilt analyzed more than 2.5 million transactions between 5/12/14 and 5/19/20 from 15,368 loan applicants to learn more about how immigrants are using Venmo and Zelle.

Bigger share of the pie

 

Zelle has around double the number of immigrants using its P2P payment service. That makes sense, given its distribution model of partnering with incumbent banks. That also means that Zelle functionality is built in to existing banking apps, so customers don’t need to download another standalone app, like they do with Venmo.
