Pay on Your Zeller Debit Card With Apple Pay



Pay on Your Zeller Debit Card With Apple Pay

Business spending just got simpler. 

With one in four consumers now using a mobile wallet to make card payments, Australia is fast becoming one of the leading countries in the world to embrace digital banking.

Spurred on by a highly developed payment landscape as well as a push for contactless transactions during the COVID-19 pandemic, Australian consumers feel increasingly confident to leave their wallets at home in exchange for Apple Pay, Google Pay, or other NFC-enabled payment solutions.

Boasting greater convenience, enhanced security, and a digital record of every transaction, the growing appetite for mobile wallets comes as no surprise. Now, small business owners too can harness this technology to streamline their business spending thanks to our new integration between Zeller Debit Card and Apple Pay. Add your Zeller Debit Card to your Apple Wallet and discover why digital payments are a boon for business. 

What is Apple Pay?

For those yet to adopt the technology: Apple Pay is Apple’s own mobile wallet. It lets you make payments by simply tapping your device — either an iPhone or Apple Watch — onto a contactless EFTPOS terminal. What was revolutionary technology after its launch in 2014 has quickly become a ubiquitous part of everyday transacting in Australia. 

Like all mobile wallets, Apple Pay relies on Near Field Communication (NFC), a technology that allows two devices to communicate wirelessly over a short distance. It’s a technology that we’re going to see a lot more of over the coming years, so it’s worth understanding how it works. For an introduction to NFC mobile payments, read our blog article here

How Apple Pay will benefit your business 

If you’re a business owner, saving time wherever you can and keeping your finances organised is vital; and it starts with streamlining your everyday processes. One of these is how you pay for your expenses. Whether you’re purchasing produce or office equipment, tools or materials, having your Zeller Debit Card in your Apple Wallet means that your business funds are always on hand. If you’re in-store, tap your preferred Apple device on the EFTPOS terminal and go. If you’re ordering online, simply choose Apple Pay as your payment method at checkout. 

Details of the transaction will appear instantly on both your mobile wallet and in your Zeller Transaction Account (on desktop and in the Zeller App), making it even easier to track payments and keep on top of your business spending. Furthermore, thanks to the added security features inherent to mobile wallets, you avoid putting your business at risk. When using Apple Pay, you are required to have a passcode as well as optionally, Face ID or Touch ID, so you can be sure your transactions are always protected.
