Which is why I've morphed to Zelle. Direct deposit, no fees, easy and fast. If you bank offers Zelle, take advantage of this direct deposit. The only information you give to your client is your email, nothing more.

Yea I understand that Venmo and Paypal are one entity.
It's very easy to turn on privacy settings so that none of your payments are public and I have always insisted that the individuals who pay me also have their privacy settings on if they want to use it. But now that they are charging I have no interest. Zelle is better it's just that nobody uses it.
Most of my customers don't carry enough cash for that.
The one thing that I don't like about zelle is that there's no verification step for the account you are sending to. You type in the email address but if you get it wrong it's gone. With Venmo you have an account photo that comes up which you use to verify.
