Accelerating expectations, technology advances and regulatory change have delivered a once-in-a-generation opportunity to reimagine payments. Anchored by our origins as merchants, driven by our search for the ultimate enablers of payments innovation, and committed to our purpose to lead and our culture of creative responsibility, Zepto is built for this moment.
Zepto’s founders began their entrepreneurial journey together in 2011 as merchants. After successfully exiting their remarkable skydiving business, they set about solving the biggest frustration they had in business: payments.
That quest saw them launch Split Payments in Byron Bay in 2018, and continues to inspire them. In 2020, Split Payments was named 'Australia's Most Innovative Technology Company’ at the annual AFR / BOSS 'Most Innovative Companies' awards. In 2021, Split Payments became Zepto.
We are driven by an unwavering pursuit, imagined by our Founders, to enable merchants to freely devise and realise their own innovative, embedded payment experiences. We do this with integrity, true to our values, to democratise payments and banking for everyone, and level the paying field.
A zeptosecond is a trillionth of a billionth of a second, or a decimal point followed by 20 zeros and a 1. It’s ten-to-the-minus-21. The smallest unit of time ever measured. The ultimate moment in time. Like right now.
