Zeller launches Tap to Pay on iPhone for business owners to accept contactless payments with Zeller App

Zeller, the Australian fintech reimagining business banking, today enabled businesses using Zeller to seamlessly and securely accept in-person contactless payments using Apple’s Tap to Pay on iPhone contactless payment acceptance technology, and the Zeller App.

Tap to Pay on iPhone accepts all forms of contactless payments, including, contactless credit and debit cards, Apple Pay, and other digital wallets, using only an iPhone and the Zeller App — no additional hardware or payment terminal is needed.

At checkout, the merchant will simply prompt the customer to hold their contactless credit or debit card, iPhone or Apple Watch to pay with Apple Pay, or another digital wallet near the merchant’s iPhone, and the payment will be securely completed using NFC technology. Tap to Pay on iPhone also supports PIN entry, which includes accessibility options.

Apple’s Tap to Pay on iPhone technology uses the built-in features of iPhone to keep the business’ and customers’ data private and secure. When a payment is processed, Apple doesn’t store card numbers on the device or on Apple servers.
