      PayPal vs Zelle opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      PayPal is convenient, safe, and free (no fee for most transactions). It's not only the best alternative to Zelle, it's superior to Zelle because it doesn't impose transfer limits like Zelle does (of $500 per week per person).
