When a successful payment is made, we charge a onetime 2.99% + $0.25 AUD. This amount is retained by YouPay with the net proceeds automatically settling to your Australian bank account at the end of each business day.

$100 payment
– $3.24 fees (2.99% + $0.25c)
You get $96.76

About YouPay

Like most great ideas, YouPay was the answer to a real world problem. Wanting to buy his partner a gift but wanting her to choose what she wanted, our Founder realised it was impossible to pay for the order without having to generate the entire order himself. What he needed was a way for his partner to share just the payment step. 

Having the resources of the team at MyWork (one of Australia’s leading digital design agencies) available to build the initial prototype of YouPay meant that getting YouPay to market was achievable in a very quick time-frame.

YouPay is a well funded standalone Australian business lead by a team of industry experts including Matt Holme, Dan Brett and Llew Jury, founders of two of Australia’s leading digital agencies.

YouPay is patent pending (Application Number 2020902167.)

Yes, we would love that. We need to get YouPay into as many shops as possible so you can start using it. This means we need more Sellers. Let your favourite shop know about YouPay by sending them a link to our website. If they sign up, we will even let you send us a YouPay link for an order up to $200 as a thank you.
