Zeller unveils Tap to Pay on Android for businesses and consumers
By Gloria Mathias
Zeller has launched Tap to Pay on Android, enabling the FinTech to deploy this new way to accept contactless payments with an offering that’s vastly simpler and more affordable than similar products from US entrants.
Tap to Pay on Android enables businesses to accept contactless payments directly from their smartphones using the Zeller App, with no additional hardware required.
Since deploying Tap to Pay on the iPhone in October 2023, Australian business owners have quickly demonstrated their fondness for the new way to accept contactless payments.
Australian shoppers have also demonstrated unequivocal support for Tap to Pay, with the average transaction value for payments accepted using Tap to Pay with Zeller App being 108% higher in comparison to in-person payments accepted using Zeller EFTPOS Terminal.
Sebastian Fernández Mackenzie, owner of Seb’s Mobile Car Wash in Melbourne, was one of the first Australian businesses to try Tap to Pay with the Zeller App. “Back then, I didn’t have my regular clients; I was sending invoices to people I’d just met. I’d have to send reminders, and one person took three days to pay me,” commented Seb. “Now, my clients simply tap their card or mobile wallet to my phone, and the payment is processed instantly. It’s so simple, takes minutes to set up, and I can see every transaction and settlement immediately in my Zeller App.”
“The early adoption we’ve seen for Tap to Pay with Zeller App has been overwhelming. Australian businesses continue to demonstrate their willingness to adopt and try the newest forms of payment innovation, particularly when they can help make getting paid and running their business simpler,” said Ben Pfisterer, Zeller CEO and Co-founder. “Zeller is proud to become the leading Australian-born fintech deploying Tap to Pay across both iOS and Android. It’s helping get brand new businesses off the ground; supporting those that are mobile, remote, or impacted by unreliable connectivity; and giving established businesses another solution to boost their financial success.”
Android smartphone users can join thousands of Zeller merchants using Tap to Pay by downloading the Zeller App and enabling the feature instantly.
