The Cardholder must ensure that the payment service provider is approved for these services and that he / she enters his / her personalised security data in a secure environment.

He or she must use the personalised security features each time he or she receives the instruction by the Point of acceptation, under penalty of involving its own liability.

The Cardholder acknowledges having been informed by the Issuer that, for any secured Payment Order by Card done remotely from a foreign country, the delivery by the Issuer of the securing information may result in additional fees to any transporter of said information, such as its mobile phone operator. These fees, the amount of which will be brought to the attention of the Cardholder before the initiation of the Card payment transaction, will remain the responsibility of the latter, who accepts them from now on.
10. Form of consent and irrevocability
The Parties agree that the Cardholder gives its consent to issue a Payment order before or after determining its amount:
  • By entering the confidential code on the keyboard of an Electronic Equipment, by verifying the presence of one of the Scheme payment card brand displayed on the Card,
  • By the introduction of the Card in an Electronic Equipment deprived of a keyboard to enter the confidential code, by verifying the presence of one of the Scheme payment card brand displayed on the Card,
  • By the communication and/or confirmation of the information related to the remote use of the Card,
  • By the confirmation of the information related to the Payment Order communicated via a certified interbank digital wallet.
The Cardholder and the Issuer agree that the Cardholder can use the Card for a chain of Payment Transactions by Card, hereinafter named “recurring and/or staggered payments”, to the Acceptors for the purchase of goods and/or services. The Cardholder gives its consent to the chain of Payment Transactions by Card by the communication and/or confirmation of the information related to the remote use of the Card during the first transaction, if so via a certified interbank digital wallet. The Cardholder may withdraw in the future its consent to the execution of a Payment Transaction or chain of Transactions at the latest at the end of the working day preceding the day agreed for its execution (a working day is a day during which the Issuer exercises an activity allowing the execution of payment transactions).
The Payment Transaction by Card is authorised if the Cardholder has given its consent in one of the forms stated above. From this moment the Payment Order is irrevocable. However, the Cardholder or the Accountholder can contest the payment in case of liquidation proceedings for the Acceptor.
The Minor Cardholder gives his consent to carry out a Card Payment Transaction under the same conditions. Nevertheless, according to the sovereign appreciation of the judges, an act passed by a minor may be null and void for simple injury. The Accountholder undertakes to inform the Minor Cardholder about the limits applicable to him. Only the acts of the everyday life can be passed by the Minor Cardholder provided they are concluded under normal conditions. Excluding acts of everyday life, purchases are dangerous in light of the financial capacity of the Minor Cardholder.
11. Terms of use of the card for a reimbursement of electronic money by cash withdrawals from an ATM displaying one of the brands appearing on the card
Cash withdrawals from ATMs are possible within the limits of the amount available at each ATM. The recorded amounts of such withdrawals as well as the possible commissions are immediately debited from the Holder's Card Account without any obligation to indicate the number or the name of the Cardholder used and carries the debit of the Payment Account.
The Cardholder and the Accountholder must, before each withdrawal and under their own responsibility, ensure the existence of the Card Account on which the Card is associated with a sufficient and available balance. The Accountholder agrees to maintain the balance until the corresponding debit.
The currency exchange rate terms in case of using of the Card for cash withdrawal in a Foreign Currency are governed by Article 13 hereof.
12. Terms of use of the card for the purchase of goods and services
The Card is a payment instrument which must be used only to settle the purchase of goods actually delivered and services actually provided. The payments by Card are done according to the provisions and conditions in effect with the Acceptors. They include in principle the control of the confidential code and, under certain conditions defined by the Schemes, a request of authorisation. When the Acceptor is located in a State of the European Economic Area ((Member States of the European Union, Iceland, Norway and Liechtenstein), it has the possibility to install a mechanism of priority selection on the Electronic Equipment. If the Cardholder does not agree with this choice, he or she can ask the Acceptor for the use of another Scheme or another payment application displayed as “accepted” by the Acceptor.
For the Payment Orders by Card done remotely, the Cardholder can be required to comply with a secure procedure of said Payment Orders, as described in article 8 above.
The settlements presented for payment by the Acceptor involve a debit registered on the Card Account, on which functions the Card according to the Specific Conditions of this Agreement. Even if there is a deferred payment, Treezor has the right to immediately debit the Card Account on which the Card of the amount of Payment Transactions made using the Card in the event of death or legal incapacity of the Bearer, of operating incidents in the Account (execution procedure), of the closure of the Payment Account or of the withdrawal of the Card by Treezor, which decision would be notified to the Cardholder and to the Accountholder by simple letter. Disputes concerning these Transactions are handled under the conditions set out in Article.
The Cardholder must ensure, on the day of the debit of the settlements, that the Card Account on which functions the Card has a sufficient and available balance which will be transferred to the Acceptor and immediately reimbursed.
The detailed amount transferred from the Card Account above-mentioned appears, unless stated otherwise, on a statement of the Transactions sent after each Transaction through the Partner.
The Issuer is not concerned by any trade dispute, meaning other than related to the Payment Order, which can appear between the Cardholder and an Acceptor, between the Cardholder and the Accountholder. Such a dispute cannot justify the refusal by the Cardholder or the Accountholder to execute the settlements by Card.
A Payment Transaction by Card can only be reimbursed by an Acceptor if there was a transaction debited from an amount higher or equal. This reimbursement must be done with the same Card than the one used for the initial transaction.
A Payment transaction can be used to obtain “quasi-cash” (chips from a casino, foreign currency…) in the dedicated locations to do so.
In some cases, the merchant can ask the Cardholder to have an available balance higher than the amount of the transaction the Cardholder wishes to do. Only the real and final value of the transaction will be effectively debited from the Card Account, and when appropriate, from the Payment Account. The Acceptors take securities and must block the funds which may not be debited from the Card. It can concern for instance:
  • hotels, car rentals, and
  • internet websites – some merchant sites proceed to request an authorisation on the Card to ensure the funds’ availability. This authorisation has a temporary impact on the available balance on the Card Account. Many merchants only debit a Card at the moment of the delivery of the goods, the Accountholder must hence ensure to have at all time the sufficient funds to cover these purchases.
The Card must not be used in situations where it is not possible to obtain an authorisation request online which would allow to know the available balance on the Card Account.
The Card can be used at fuel pumps in self-service in France, as long as the available balance is higher than the necessary amount to authorise the purchase. The Card can be used to pay at the cashier.
If, for any reasons, a transaction which had not been subject to a systematic authorisation, has been paid by the Issuer despite an insufficient available balance on the Card Account, the debit amount would be written on the statement of the Accountholder on a specific line “outstanding debt”. The Accountholder agrees to credit the Card Account as soon as possible, in order to allow Treezor to debit the account proportionally to its outstanding debt. The Accountholder will be notified and will receive an invoice to be paid immediately. If the Accountholder does not immediately pay this amount after having received the invoice, the Issuer will be able to take any necessary measure, including legal, to obtain the due amounts.
The exchange currency rate terms for the use of the Card to pay for the purchase of goods and services in Foreign Currency are governed by Article 13 hereof.
13. Foreign currency and foreign exchange transactions
The Accountholder has the option to make withdrawals or Card Payment Transactions in Currency. In fact, the Card is recognized by the Network as a domestic card in Local Currency, provided that sufficient funds are available on the corresponding Card Account denominated in said Currency.
In case of insufficient provision in the Card Account, if the amount of the Card Payment Transaction is available on the Payment Account, the Transaction will be treated as an International Card Payment Transaction, under the conditions described below.
When the Cardholder uses his Card to withdraw cash or settle goods or services in a currency not proposed by the Institution or the corresponding Card Account does not have a sufficient provision at the time of transmission of the 'Payment order', the Payment Transaction is executed according to the following conditions from the provision available in Euro on the Payment Account. The exchange rate that may be applicable is that applicable on the date of processing of the Payment Transaction by the relevant Payment Card Network. The currency conversion shall be effected by the relevant Payment Card Network Center on the day of processing the Payment Transaction at that exchange and the exchange conditions of the said Payment Card Network.
The Card Payment Transaction statement contains the following information: amount of the payment transaction in original currency, amount of the payment transaction converted into euro, amount of fees, exchange rate applied. The Payment Account Statement shows the balance of the Payment Account.
14. Reception and execution of the payment order
By convention, the Issuer informs the Cardholder that the Payment Order by Card has been received at the moment where it is communicated by the Acceptor’s bank or by the manager of the automatic cash dispenser, through the clearing system or settlement of the payment order. When the Payment Order by Card has been executed within the European Economic Area, the Issuer has a period of one (1) working day after this receipt, to credit the account of the Acceptor’s bank. Concerning the withdrawals, the Issuer informs the Cardholder that the withdrawal order is executed immediately by the provision of cash in the Cardholder’s hands.
15. Treezor’s responsibility
When the Cardholder denies having consented to the Payment Transaction by Card, the Issuer must bring the proof of authentication of the Transaction, duly registered and accounted in accordance with the state of the current technology and scientific knowledge, and that the Transaction has not been affected by a technical deficiency. This proof of use of the Card and of the personalised security features can be provided by all means, such as recordings of Points of acceptations or their reproduction on a computer support. The Issuer can use these recordings to justify their imputation to the Card Account on which the Card functions.
The Issuer is responsible for the direct losses incurred by the Cardholder or the Accountholder and caused by a technical deficiency of the Card on which the Issuer has a direct control. However, the Issuer is not held liable for a loss caused by a technical deficiency of the Scheme if it was reported to the Cardholder by a message on the Point of acceptation or other visible way.
16. Parties responsibilities
The Cardholder must take any measure to keep its Card and maintain the personalised security features attached to it, such as his confidential code. He or she must use it in accordance with the purposes specified in article 1. The Accountholder bears the consequences of the use of the Card as long as he did not make any request of contestation as described in the Payment Service Framework Agreement. The Accountholder must ensure that the Cardholder has become aware of and comply with these measures.
The unauthorised Payment Transactions by Card following the counterfeit of the Card or the unauthorised use of the information related to its use are the responsibility of the Issuer.

The termination by the Issuer shall take effect two (2) months after the date of receipt of its notification to the Accountholder. It is expected that in case of closing of the Payment Account of the Accountholder, the General conditions of use are automatically terminated without notice. The Accountholder must restore the Card at the effective date of termination. He or she agrees to respect and make sure the Cardholder respects all the contractual provisions of the General conditions of use until the aforesaid date. As of the effective date of termination, the Cardholder cannot use the Card anymore and the Issuer can take any measures necessary to do so.
18. Period of validity of the card – renewal – withdrawal and restitution of the card
The Card includes a period of validity which term is indicated on the Card itself. The limited period of validity of the Card corresponds to technical and security necessities and does not have any consequence on the unlimited period of the General conditions of use. At the expiry date, the Card can be renewed automatically unless the General conditions of use were terminated under the conditions stated here above. Except in case of blockage resulting from the management of the Card Account on which functions the Card, the Issuer can block the Card for security reasons or in case of presumption of unauthorised or fraudulent Transaction, or in case of high risk that the Accountholder is unable to satisfy to its payment obligation. This decision to block is motivated and notified in any cases to the Cardholder and/or the Accountholder. If so, the Issuer can remove the Card or make an Acceptor, or any duly certified payment services institution remove it. The closing of the Card Account on which functions the Card or the Payment Account of the Accountholder results in the obligation for the Cardholder to return the Card.

These Terms and Conditions (the “Terms and Conditions”) set out the rules that govern ZELF Refer a Friend Programme. By using the Refer a Friend Programme, you confirm that you accept these Terms and Conditions and will comply with them. If you do not agree to these Terms and Conditions in their entirety, you are not authorised to participate in the Refer a Friend Programme.
To participate in the Refer a Friend Programme, join ZELF on with one of your messengers (Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Telegram or Viber), pre-order ZELF card and select “Invite” in the chatbot menu. Users who invite friends to participate in the Refer a Friend Programme are called “Referrers”. Individuals who receive an invitation to participate in the Refer a Friend Programme are called “Referees.” Individuals who receive an invitation to participate in the Refer a Friend Programme from referees are called “2nd level Referees”.
  1. Referrers can invite multiple friends – there’s no limit. Referred friends must be completely new to ZELF. Refer a Friend Programme will provide referrer and his Referee with a bonus “€5 cash back”. 2nd level Referees will bring additional bonus “€1 cash back” to the initial referrer. Referees must accept the Refer a Friend Terms and Conditions and complete an online ZELF registration and pre-order the card.
  2. Post the unique referral link on personal social media accounts, excluding any site that is contributed to or owned by someone else (eg Wikipedia). Note: search engine marketing (eg Adwords, Yahoo or Bing) or the words “coupon”, “code”, “promo code”, “discount code”, “voucher code” or “voucher” must not be used to promote posts.
  3. ZELF can change the bonus at any time. The amount of the bonus you will be entitled to will be the amount that applies at the time you meet all requirements of the Refer a Friend Programme.
  4. The bonuses have no official monetary value and can be used to refund purchases made with the card.
  5. Both the Referrer and the Referee will generally be entitled to redeem the bonuses when (a) the Referrer has shared the Referral Link with the Referee; (b) the Referee uses the Referral Link to accept these Terms and Conditions and registers in official ZELF chatbots found on; and (c) the Referee has topped up and completed a transaction that (i) meets the requirements of the Refer a Friend Programme within his or her jurisdiction, (ii) has been approved by ZELF, and (iii) has been received by the recipient (a “Qualifying Transaction”).
  6. A “Qualifying Transaction” can be made with the virtual card both online and offline of minimum €5 with independent business, and does not include wallet-to-wallet transactions, card-2-card transfer, SEPA transfers and any other types of transfers.
  7. About the Refer a Friend bonuses. 7.1. All bonuses that collected during Refer a Friend Program can be used to cover purchases (see it as a "reverse cash back"). 7.2. The bonus has two statuses: Spendable and Pending. Pending bonuses show the maximum spendable potential (e.g. all friends invited by you become verified users and made their first transaction, more on that below). Spendable bonuses are available to refund the purchases. 7.3. How to collect and redeem bonuses: Welcome bonus: Once new user creates Zelf account and pre-orders the card he will see two lines in the menu: €4 – Pending bonuses; €1 – Spendable bonuses. After Zelf card is issued, users can spend spendable bonuses. When users top up the card and make a Qualified Transaction of €5 the ratio between two bonus types change again, adding €1 bonus to a spendable bonus balance: €3 – Pending bonuses; €2 – Spendable bonuses. To transfer all resting bonuses from pending to spendable account users need to verify themselves. Refer-a-friend bonuses work similar. Bonuses from 2nd level referee works in the following ratio: Once 2nd level referee pre-orders the card, the initial referrer receives €0,2 bonus on his spendable bonus account and €0,8 on the pending bonus account. 7.4. Invite links are infinite and do not have expiry period. However you get bonuses only for referees who have completed registration via your link. 7.5. The period of card activation after the card is received is 30 days. To activate the card the card holder is required to Top Up the card and make a Qualified Transaction. 7.6.
