Payment Options

Send funds to our email address

Send funds to hugh@zenithherbal.com from your online banking account. Most banks have this feature called “Zelle” or “Pay to someone’s email address” or some such. The funds will arrive in our bank account nearly immediately. If your bank asks for a phone number (they shouldn’t) then use this one: 323-250-0513. It’s an old phone number that is no longer in use, but I don’t have a phone or a mobile phone in the USA. Use “Uwe” as the first name and “Wichmann” as the last name if your bank requires it.

Bank of America – Receive and Pay by Zelle

Please specify your Order Number with the Payment.

Please Note: You don’t need to download an app for this. It’s a service that your bank probably provides.

Pay by PayItNow PayItNow Logo

Many Credit Unions use “PayItNow” as an alternative to Zelle, the service that full-fledged banks prefer. We are signed up PayItNow and payments will happen easily. Use the same details as for Zelle.

Pay by Chime

We can accept payment with Chime. Use the email:  hugh@zenithherbal.com

How to pay with Chime Mobile App:

  1. Open the Chime mobile app and tap ‘Pay Friends’.
  2. Input your friend’s email or phone number or select them from your contact list.
  3. Enter the amount of money you want to transfer and click ‘Send

We will receive a message with directions on how to claim the money if they don’t have Chime. Remember, Chime mobile payments are always free!

For the complete instructions, go to the Chime Website.

Don’t: Pay by PopMoney or CashApp – Paypal and Venmo

We cannot accept Popmoney payments. Their service is rubbish and unreliable and they make you wait on the phone forever for “customer service”.

We cannot accept Paypal and Venmo because bloodroot products are banned in their platforms for reasons I do not know.


Pay by Bank (ACH) Transfer

What is ACH?

(Also see “How do ACH Payments Work?“)

Automated Clearing House is the system by which banks transfer money from an account at one bank to an account at another. This is where it takes 3 days to make a transfer and you wonder why. More generally, an automated clearing house (ACH) is a computer-based electronic network for processing transactions. If your bank asks for a phone number, then use this one: 323-250-0513.

Anyway, banks will call these different names, like “transfer money”, or “Bill Pay”, or “Pay someone”.

It doesn’t really matter: when you choose to send money to someone else from your bank account, then the ACH is probably the system that handles the transaction. Some more modern banks use blockchain transfers, but they are still few and far between. If you’re interested in blockchain technology you will probably know that Ripple (Symbol XRP) solves this problem. The hyperlinks in this paragraph go to Wikipedia pages.

Please Note:

Please make sure that we can identify that you are the sender of your payment. The best way is to send us an email with “I just sent you a payment of {amount}”.

“Wire” payments:

If you choose to “wire” us funds, then please be aware that our bank will charge us $16 in “Wire Transaction Fee”, so please add that to your payment. The Routing Number for “Wires” is 026009593, which is different from the normal ACH routing number.

Don’t: Pay by PopMoney or CashApp

We cannot accept Popmoney payments. Their service is rubbish and unreliable and they make you wait on the phone forever for “customer service”.

Canada

Some countries have regulations that make it difficult to sell natural health products (e.g. EU, Australia), while others achieve the same goal by making it impossible for us to get paid (e.g. Canada) by restricting access to banking services for non-residents.

 

INTERAC: if your bank uses the INTERAC system for money transfers then DON’T. We would need a Canadian bank account to do a transfer and we cannot get one.

All too Complicated? Do this!

Phone your bank and ask them this:

I need to pay someone who has a BoA account and can take payments either directly to their email address, which I have, or to their bank account where I have the routing number and account number. What do you think that I should do?
