I am sure you're just hearing about the ZELF platform and its referral program. However, you need not worry because this is not a scam. In this discussion, I will put you through on how to invite friends on ZELF and earn €5 for every friend referred. I will also guide you to send and receive money on the platform.
What is ZELF?
Zelf is an instant banking platform available in popular messengers. Its customers referred to as “Zelfers” are allowed to perform transactions conveniently without the need to physically appear in a bank, install a banking app, or use their website. You send and receive messages through the messenger apps you use daily.
Zelf uses automated bots to handle financial transactions easily without any problems. Besides, it gives ATM cards for free to new customers. This card can be used to make online payments, receive money, and can be used to make withdrawals from local ATMs and POS.
There are a good number of typical banking platforms like Zelf which includes PayPal, Payoneer, and Payza. However, none of these platforms works with messengers. You can only use their services through the website or banking app. This is what gives Zelf an edge over others.
Is Zelf a Legitimate Platform? Can I trust Zelf?
Zelf is a limited liability company registered commercially in the Republic of Latvia to carry out under the registration number 40203221719.
The company has its headquarters is located at Riga and performs commercial activities with commercial name SIA “ZELF” as a distributor of electronic money under articles I.525-8 following the financial and monetary code in the name and for the account of Treezor.
Zelf, however, is not the first to reward referrers. Over the years, Payoneer rewards its users who refer another to join the platform. Many doubted it back then but a good number used the opportunity to earn online. Also, the WhatsApp banking feature was announced some years back too.
The company in a tweet announced its partnership with MasterCard to achieve its goal of changing the world's financial system.
The team is the only thing that matters ✊
We are proud to announce that @Mastercard & @TreezorBanking has joined Zelf as partners and will hugely participate in our conquest on changing the world's financial system.
Great to see you on board! https://t.co/iL5oCIQ5cb
