WHAT IS
UPFRONT PAY?

Upfront Pay is an intermediary payment solution for tradies (or any kind of service providers) and their customers. We hold the funds secure until the job is done. Upfront Pay is a similar system to the QBCC’s ‘Project Trust Accounts’, but unlike the QBCC, our service is accessible by anyone, for any size job.

WHY SHOULD I USE IT?

Win-Win Solution

Upfront Pay is a win-win solution because it protects both the service provider and the customer. It guarantees job completion and payment for work done.

For Service Providers

Get paid safer and sooner. No more chasing late payments for jobs you finished weeks (or months) ago. As soon as your job is complete, we transfer funds to your account.

For Customers

Get the service you paid for without the risk of losing a deposit, or more, to an unscrupulous tradie. When you sign off on the job, payment is released. Not before.

What’s the Upfront Pay story?

Watch the full story here.

Our story started because a Sunshine Coast tradie was tired of not being paid and chasing late payments, and hearing the same issues from his friends, so he decided to do something about it. Cam Hodges is the founder and CEO of Upfront Pay. He is a concreting contractor and company owner, with a degree in Criminal Justice.

Seeing the criminal and unjust issue of non-payment and late payment in the construction industry, along with the lack of avenues to recoup lost money, Cam was spurred on to find a fair solution for tradies and homeowners.
