First off, we want to thank you for being a part of the ZIPZERO Community. The day we started ZIPZERO, we knew we wanted to create a solution that would simplify all our lives. Day by day, we see that we’re not only building an app that has become a daily companion for thousands of users, but together we are starting to create a movement. It’s a movement that is helping build a world where ABSOLUTE WEALTH MEANS PAYING ZERO!
That’s why we’re continuously sharing elements of ZIPZERO’s evolution with you and letting you know what latest steps we are taking to continue our journey and thrive.
We recently experienced some issues with our bank partner over exorbitant wire transfer charges. We quickly managed to find a temporary solution by creating a new business account with another bank offering lower transfer rates. We took this swift course of action so that we could get back to making payments towards your bills as soon as possible.
In order to achieve this, we will have to increase the minimum transfer amount from £1 to £5. This change will come along with the app update this week. That means fewer transfers but a higher amount for each transfer. By raising the amount for each minimum transfer, we will be able to better manage the cost of transfers ordered each week. Rather than handing over 30 p for every £1 transfer to the bank, we’d rather have more cash to put towards your bills.
Currently, we are covering all our users’ bill payments from our own pockets. At the same time, we are building a foundation that will let us turn to big corporations to give us access to their massive marketing budgets so that we can continue to help cover your monthly bills. The first step of this process has begun and we are moving towards a greener future with our new online shopping offers.
Our goal is to redirect marketing budgets from big businesses by cutting out the marketing middleman and passing on the benefits from retailers to pay your bills directly. This is why ZIPZERO is a human-driven business at its core. We look at our community first and will always fight for the best solution for our users.
As always, if you have any additional questions regarding ZIPZERO, don’t hesitate to contact us on social media or by using our contact form within the app.
Your ZIPZERO Founders
