Zeller has become the first Australian-born fintech to deploy Tap to Pay on Android with a more simple and affordable offering compared to similar products from US entrants.

Tap to Pay on Android enables businesses to accept contactless payments directly from their smartphone using the Zeller app, with no additional hardware required. It follows the introduction of Tap to Pay on iPhone in October 2023.

The average transaction value for payments accepted using Tap to Pay with Zeller app is 108% higher in comparison to in-person payments accepted using a Zeller EFTPOS Terminal.

“The early adoption we’ve seen for Tap to Pay with Zeller app has been overwhelming. Australian businesses continue to demonstrate their willingness to adopt and try the newest forms of payment innovation, particularly when they can help make getting paid and running their business simpler,” Zeller CEO and co-founder, Ben Pfisterer said.

“Zeller is proud to become the leading Australian-born fintech deploying Tap to Pay across both iOS and Android. It’s helping get new businesses off the ground; supporting those that are mobile, remote or impacted by unreliable connectivity; and giving established businesses another solution to boost their financial success.”
