Example of Foreign Exchange Fee:
You make a purchase from a merchant located outside Australia (e.g. USA);
At the time, Mastercard’s prevailing exchange rate is US$1.00 = $1.30 Australian; You spend US$200.00;
The Australian dollar amount is US$200.00 x $1.30 = $260.00;
The foreign exchange fee is therefore (1.69% x $260.00) + $0.79 = $5.18
For a full listing of fees and charges please refer to section 45.3 Fees and Charges.
The following limitations apply to the Card:
The following table illustrates the transaction and load limits applicable to the Card. Merchants or other providers of facilities may impose additional limits.

You will elect a PIN of your choice at the time of activation. You must not disclose your PIN to any other person.

To change your PIN, go to:
If you have any technical difficulty changing your PIN, please contact Zeller on 1800 935 537.
You must make sure that you keep the Card, Identifiers and any PINs or Pass Codes safe and secure. The precautions we require you to take (Security Requirements) are set out below.

If you know or have reason to suspect that your Card is lost or stolen or damaged, likely to be misused or you have reason to suspect that someone else may know the PIN, you must immediately notify Zeller. We will then suspend your Card to restrict further use.
You may be required to confirm details of the loss, theft or misuse in writing (and to provide particular information in the confirmation) and you must comply with that requirement.
If any lost Card is subsequently found, it must not be used. You must not attempt to use the Card.
Should your Card be retained by any ATM, the Card is deemed to be lost or stolen and hence cannot be recovered. In that event, you will need to contact Zeller on 1800 953 357 or via email at email@example.com and arrange to be issued with a new Card. There is no fee involved to have a replacement Card issued.
Where you are not liable
You will not be liable for losses resulting from Unauthorised Transactions where it is clear that you have not contributed to the loss.
You will not be liable for losses resulting from Unauthorised Transactions are caused by:
You are not liable for loss arising from Unauthorised Transactions that can be made using an Identifier without the Card or a PIN. Where a transaction can be made using the Card without a PIN, you are liable only if you unreasonably delay reporting the loss or theft of a Device or the Physical Card.
Where you are liable
You are liable for loss resulting from an Unauthorised Transaction if we can prove on the balance of probability that you contributed to the loss through fraud or breaching sections 45.6 and 45.7 of these Terms and Conditions. In those circumstances you are liable in full for the actual losses that occur between when you become aware of the security compromise, theft or misuse of a Card, or should reasonably have become aware in the case of a lost or stolen Physical Card or breach of PIN security is reported to us, however:
You will be liable for losses arising from an Unauthorised Transaction if we can prove on the balance of probability that you contributed to those losses by unreasonably delaying reporting the misuse, loss or theft of a Card, or that the security of all PIN has been breached. In those circumstances, you are liable in full for the actual losses that occur between when you become aware of the security compromise, or should reasonably have become aware in the case of a lost or stolen Card, but:
If a PIN was required to perform an Unauthorised Transaction not already covered above, you will be liable for the actual loss at the time that the misuse, loss or theft of a Card or breach of PIN security is reported to us, excluding that portion of the losses incurred on any one day which exceeds any relevant daily of other periodic transaction limit.
If you report an Unauthorised Transaction, we will not hold you liable for losses arising from the Unauthorised Transaction for an amount greater than your liability if we exercised any rights under Mastercard Scheme Rules, at the time of the report, against other parties to the Mastercard scheme (for example, chargeback rights).
Important Information about Chargebacks
A chargeback is a right under the Mastercard Scheme Rules by which a transaction can effectively be reversed by us debiting an amount to the merchant’s financial institution and crediting back to your Available Balance. We can only process chargebacks if the Mastercard Scheme Rules allow us to.
In some circumstances, you may be able to request a chargeback of a transaction when you have a dispute with a merchant; for example:
If you believe that you are entitled to a chargeback, you must notify us as soon as possible by contacting Zeller as the Mastercard Scheme Rules impose time limits for initiating chargebacks. The time limit is generally 90 days from the date of the disputed transaction.
If you request a chargeback, we may need you to provide additional information. If we do ask you for additional information and you do not provide it within 10 days, then you may lose any rights to the chargeback and if it has already been processed, we may reverse it.
Please note that if we process a chargeback, the merchant may have rights under the Mastercard Scheme Rules to have the transaction investigated further, and this can in some circumstances result in the chargeback being reversed (which means the original transaction might be reinstated by being debited to your Available Balance).
You acknowledge that you will not receive paper statements from us regarding the operation of your Card. Periodic statements showing the transactions on your Card and the Available Balance are available on the Website.
Provided you have registered your Card, its balance and transaction history will be made available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week through the Website at no charge (see section 45.2 “Using the Card”).
If you notice any error (or possible error) in any transaction or statement relating to Card, then you must notify Zeller immediately. We may request you to provide additional written information concerning any error (or possible error) and you must comply with that request.
It is your responsibility to regularly review your transaction history to identify Unauthorised Transactions.
The Card is valid until the expiry date shown on it unless it is cancelled before then.
Your Card cannot be used after expiry. You cannot access any value loaded on the expired Card unless a replacement Card is issued to you.
We may issue you with a replacement Card if requested by you at any time after expiry and provided you have registered your details with us, including your name and Australian address. We reserve the right not to issue a replacement Card to you, in which case we will return any Available Balance on your Card to you.
If your Card is misused, lost or stolen, you should notify Zeller so that your Card can be cancelled.
You can request Zeller to provide you with a replacement Card.
A replacement Card will be arranged after you notify us that your Card or Card details are misused, lost or stolen and the misused, lost or stolen Card has been blocked. You will need to register and activate the new Card in accordance with section 45.12.
You may ask for the Card to be cancelled at any time. If you ask for the Card to be cancelled and we ask you to, you must surrender or destroy the cancelled Physical Card, and you must not use the cancelled Card.
We may cancel your Card at any time. Where possible, we will give you 20 days advance notice of the cancellation. However, we may act without prior notice if:
If we cancel your Card, we will give you notice as soon as reasonably practical afterwards.
We may revoke the Card at any time without cause or notice. If we ask you to, you must surrender or destroy the revoked Card and you must not use the revoked Card. When you surrender the Card, you must give us your correct name and contact address.
On the revocation or cancellation of the Card, we will pay the Available Balance to you when:
We are not liable:
Our liability in any event shall not exceed the amount of the Available Balance except in relation to:
We are not otherwise liable for the use, functionality or availability of compatible contactless terminals, or a reduced level of service caused by the failure of third party communications and network providers.
Any failure or delay enforcing a term of these Terms and Conditions does not mean a waiver of them.
We are subject to the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing Act 2006 and the rules and other subordinate instruments under the Act (AML/CTF Laws). Before the Card can be activated, we are obliged to collect certain identification information from you (and verify that information) in compliance with the AML/CTF Laws. Customer identification information includes detailed 'know your customer' (KYC) information about the Cardholder such as:
We may be prohibited from offering services or entering into or conducting transactions with you if you do not provide this information.
You should be aware that:
You provide us with the following undertakings and indemnify us against any potential losses arising from any breach by you of such undertakings:
You agree that we may give written notices or other communications to you under or in connection with these Terms by either:
You may vary your nominated email address for Electronic Communication by notifying us through the Website and satisfying us of your identity.
