Quiz: Which payment method would you use?

There are many ways to move money now, but the method you choose may depend on what you’re buying.

Years ago, there were three main ways to pay for things: cash, check, or credit card.

But as more financial technology is invented, there are a growing number of convenient and safer ways to pay. You no longer have to worry about having cash to pay your share of a fancy group dinner — just send money directly to your friend by using Zelle®1. And being short on change doesn’t have to keep you from buying that morning coffee — many corner bodegas now accept digital wallet payments! And while it’s handy to have cash on hand, you often don’t have it — and that’s OK.

But what payment method should you use for your daily transactions? Take the quiz below to find out a few instances of when you should pay with Bill Pay, digital wallet, Zelle, cash, or Wells Fargo Credit or Debit Cards — either your physical card or in your preferred digital wallet (whew!).
