Register and Accept a Digital Payment

These instructions are for Stanford visitors who qualify for a Digital Payment to reimburse their Stanford-related travel expenses. They describe how to register for and accept a Digital Payment.

Digital Payments are used to reimburse domestic travel expenses for visitors' travel expenses quickly and efficiently. These reimbursements are routed through J. P. Morgan Chase Bank on behalf of Stanford using Zelle, a secure nationwide digital payment network governed by U.S. banking regulations, or paid via an Automated Clearing House (ACH) bank transfer (direct deposit).

How to Register and Accept a Digital Payment

Stanford will notify a visitor/payee via email when a Digital Payment is approved and sent to J.P. Morgan Chase Bank for payment.  When the payment is available, J.P. Morgan will send the visitor/payee an email on behalf of Stanford with instructions on how to register with J.P. Morgan, accept the payment amount, select a payment method (direct deposit or Zelle), and accept the payment. 

This page provides step-by-step guidance and screenshots to walk visitor/payees through the J.P. Morgan registration and payment process after they receive the email notification from J.P. Morgan.

To be reimbursed via Zelle, visitor/payees should ensure that their Zelle account is enrolled with both their mobile phone number and the email address that they provided to Stanford.

Visitor/payees must accept the payment within 14 calendar days of receiving the email.  The payment will expire after 14 days.

The visitor/payee will receive email notification from J.P. Morgan (on behalf of Stanford) when a payment is approved and available
