Australia’s fastest-growing technology company, Zeller has signed up over 25,000 merchants in its first 16 months of operation. Larger merchants now contribute 60% of Zeller’s total monthly processing value, and the volume of larger businesses signing up for Zeller has more than doubled year-on-year.

Zeller’s customers are also not showing signs of slowing down, with 76% of merchants recently surveyed saying they are confident in growing their business over the next 12 months. Zeller has grown to 225 employees and is recruiting for over 27 new global roles as business expansion accelerates. The business has also recently relocated to permanent headquarters in Melbourne’s CBD and has opened an office for its growing team in Sydney.

Zeller co-founder and CEO, Ben Pfisterer (pictured) said, “It’s clear that Zeller’s product offering has resonated with business owners, fulfilling a pronounced market need. We experienced fantastic growth in our first year which was plagued by intermittent lockdowns.

“Now, in more normalised economic times, our growth has accelerated. As business owners emerge from a period of survival, we are seeing many apportion a greater focus to growing their business, with better tech solutions in place.”

Zeller has also announced the launch of an integration with global small business platform, Xero to enable Zeller customers to seamlessly feed inbound and outbound payments, transfers, and spending data from their Zeller Transaction Account or Mastercard into Xero.

Xero executive general manager of global partnerships, Ian Boyd said, “Automatic transaction syncing between Zeller and Xero will give small businesses an up-to-date view of their cash flow, supporting customers to make smarter business decisions.

“We look forward to deepening our relationship with Zeller to better serve small businesses with technology solutions to help them run and grow their business more efficiently. It’s great to see more innovation coming out of this part of the world with a shared vision of supporting small businesses to thrive.”

Zeller has also launched integrations with over 600 point-of-sale (POS) platforms including Impos, Redcat and OrderMate, opening the company up to more than 250,000 Australian businesses that currently use these POS platforms.

“We are seeing growing dissatisfaction among Australian business owners in the outdated service and product being delivered by the incumbents. Zeller is listening to the longstanding grievances of merchants and expanding our offering to address the digital financial services requirements of these larger Australian businesses — both now and into the future,” Pfisterer added.

Businesses can discover hundreds of integrations now available in the new Zeller Partner Hub — a go-to directory for all current and future Zeller integrations across point-of-sale, accounting, ecommerce, BNPL and more.
