Product Description

A set of payment functionalities including:

  1. A reloadable debit Mastercard with the following key attributes:
    1. ability to purchase eligible goods and services electronically where Mastercard is accepted;
    2. ability to load the Card to a digital wallet, allowing Cardholders to make purchases with eligible mobile devices; and
    3. ability to transfer funds from the Card to an external bank account. 

 

  1. Direct Entry Payment functionality, enabling payments to third party bank accounts by way of electronic transfer; 
  2. New Payments Platform (NPP) payment functionality, enabling payments to third party bank accounts through the NPP

In general, it is only available to Consumers that who have purchased a Zeller terminal as a means to acquire payments from customers of their business and who have activated and operate both the Zeller terminal and the EZPS.

Separately to the EZPS, Zeller also provides access to the Zeller Account which enables Consumers to receive payments through Direct Entry Payment functionality and NPP payment functionality. Appropriateness

Zeller considers that the product (including its key attributes) is likely to be consistent with the likely objectives, financial situation and needs of Consumers as it provides the means for Consumers to access funds acquired from the sale of their goods and services without the need to transfer funds to a Consumer’s bank account.

 

Distribution Conditions

Marketing and Promotion

A distributor must only market and promote the product through:

  1. advertising through media (including social media), physical marketing materials (such as banners, brochures or flyers) and any other marketing material available to the general public; and
  2. any other Zeller approved communication channels (including telephone, email and social media).

This condition is appropriate as the target market for the Zeller terminal to which the product relates and is distributed in conjunction with is wide.
