Upfront Pay is an intermediary payment solution for service providers and customers. We hold the funds secure until the job is done.

No more unpaid invoices.

Non-payment for completed work is a common problem that service providers face. Upfront Pay helps solve this by being a safe, secure, and trustworthy escrow service between you and your customers.

Customers pay upfront

Your customers make the payment before the work begins. This means you can confidently schedule work and coordinate materials and labour.

The funds are safe

We hold the funds in our secure escrow account and notify you so you can start work. No more anxiety; your payment is ready and waiting upon completion.

Job done = Paid

Once the job is completed and the customer confirms, the funds are immediately released to you. It’s so simple and stress-free.

“We found the app really easy to use”

— Ryan M (ADMR & Fleet Rescue)

No monthly fees.

Upfront Pay is a pay-as-you-earn service. Our fee is only 0.9%. For example, an upfront payment of $1,000 costs $9 and is automatically deducted upon the final transfer to your account.

This is how it works.

Let’s walk you through it.

Create a job

Simply sign in to your account, click “Add New Job”, enter in the details, and click “Send to Customer”. Takes you about 2 min!


Customer pays

Your customer will receive an email with a unique URL (web page) for their job. They check over the job details and pay the job amount into the provided Upfront Pay account.

Complete the job

With the job funds confirmed and safely held in the Upfront Pay escrow account, you can confidently pick up your tools and get to work.

Funds are released

When you’ve completed the job, simply change the job status to “Complete”. This sends another email to your customer asking for confirmation that the job is complete. Once confirmed, the funds are immediately released to your bank account.
