    Last week I transferred $60 suing Zelle

    Could you please check the following? I want it to sound more natural.

    Last week I transferred $60 using Zelle from my Bank of America account to Wintrust account but I haven't revived that $60 and my balance is still the same amount before I made transfer.

    Try that. By the way keep an eye on your spelling:
    - "revive" is not the same as "receive"
    - "suing" is not the same as "using"

    How about: the transfer did not go through?
    I am not a teacher or a native speaker.

    Re: Last week I transferred $60 suing Zelle

    If the transfer didn't go through, I'd start with "Last week I tried/attempted to ...". If you say "I transferred" or "I used Zell to transfer", it sounds as if the transfer was successful.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Yes the transfer seemed to be successful as the transaction was posted the day after that but I haven't yet gotten that $60.

    I don't know what you mean by "the transaction was posted". I wouldn't say that the transfer was successful until the money appears in the receiving account.

    I don't know what you mean by "the transaction was posted".
    I mean it was no longer "pending". I heard the sentence "the transaction is posted" here from one of the US bank tellers.

    Think of "posted" as meaning "submitted". By the way, has the problem been solved?

    It sounds like a phrase used within the industry or, at least, only in the US. It doesn't mean anything in BrE.

    I have heard it before. It may be limited specific contexts (e.g. banking or accounting), but it is in use.

    Take a look at entry #2 (verb) for post2 in the link below:
