What is the Supplier Early Payments platform?

At Earlypay, we’re all about helping businesses to thrive with innovative approaches to finance that work to enhance business performance. Our platform enables Australian businesses to leverage the technology to offer an automated and customised early payment program to their suppliers and subcontractors.

Early payments can help improve your bottom line by giving your suppliers the option of receiving early payment on their invoices in exchange for a discount. You benefit from the savings while your suppliers can enjoy improved cash flow to keep their business moving. Earlypay users report that their money is earning superior returns through early supplier payment discounts than simply sitting at bank.

The Earlypay platform is flexible and scalable and can deliver a customised program to suit the needs of your business and your supply chain. You maintain full control over payments, your supplier relationships and your contracts. You decide which suppliers will be offered early payments and you set the agreements, while Earlypay manage the program on your behalf.

Our proprietary platform integrates with your existing software and business processes across multiple sites and even gives you the flexibility to offer different discounts to individual suppliers. Because you’re in control, there are no hoops to jump through around security registrations or due diligence of you or your suppliers.

    An automated daily feed from your business provides information on which invoices and suppliers are approved for payment under standard payment terms.

  2. 02

    Earlypay communicates with your subcontractor to confirm which of the approved invoices they would like early payment on.

  3. 03

    Earlypay communicates these early payment preferences and payment instructions to you for review.
