Australian fintech, Zeller is helping give back to small retailers and café owners who were impacted by lockdowns with the launch of a national competition to coincide with the re-opening of retail in NSW and Victoria.

Zeller is awarding five business owners $15,000 cash, a free Zeller EFTPOS terminal and fee-free EFTPOS payments for six months, valued at $5,000.

Nominations are now open and entrants have until 3pm AEDT on 26 November to nominate their winner.

“As business trading restrictions ease across New South Wales and Victoria following months of lockdown, we’re glad to see an optimistic outlook for businesses as they get back to what they do best,” Zeller co-founder and CEO, Ben Pfisterer said.

 “At Zeller we know that cash flow is critically important to any business — and a positive cash injection can lift the pressure that the past year may have caused. That’s why we’re excited to have launched this major, national competition.

“By delivering businesses access to smarter, more affordable payment technology through Zeller Terminal, combined with giving five businesses the chance to each win a $15,000 cash prize for their business — we’re hoping we can make a meaningful impact in their recovery as they head into the busy holiday season.”
