How does it work?

1. Select an invoice

Load invoices from your accounting software or create them directly in Relay. Choose which invoices you want paid faster.

2. Request prompt payment

3. Get paid quickly

Decide when you want to get paid and how much you are happy to spend. Enter your bid and set an expiry date. We'll activate a dynamic cash back reward offer to your customer for payment on or before this date.

Frequently asked questions

Why spend money to get paid promptly?


Would you rather have $1,000 now or $1,000 in a year's time? Whether the money comes in after 1 year or on the 20th of next month, the principle is the same. Cash in the bank today is worth more than cash at some point in the future. Relay lets you decide what good cash flow is worth to your business.




How much does it cost to use Relay?


It is free to request prompt payment. If your request is accepted you will be charged a service fee. This will never be more than the maximum bid that you set. If your customer sends you a prompt payment offer directly the service fee will be displayed clearly as part of the offer. There are no additional fees.




How do prompt payment rewards work?


Cash back rewards incentivise your customers to pay approved invoices before the due date. When you request prompt payment we combine it with other active requests in your supply chain and dynamically generate targeted cash back offers to upstream businesses with cash ready to pay today.




How does our Relay bank account work?


When you join Relay your business is given its own Relay bank account. This account is unique to your business and is where you will receive funds when customers pay promptly. Funds are transferred to this account as soon as your customer accepts a prompt payment offer and can instantly be used to pay your suppliers on Relay. You can withdraw funds from Relay to your verified bank account at any time. All customer funds are held on bare trust in separate bank accounts at BNZ. This ensures that your funds are completely segregated from the business operations of Relay Ltd.




How long does it take to setup Relay?


Most businesses can be up and running in minutes. It's easy to import approved invoices by connecting your ERP or accounting software. You can also upload invoices manually or create them directly in Relay. If you are a larger business we offer a custom integration to your ERP at no charge if required (Conditions Apply). Please contact us to discuss your needs.




Why do I need to get verified?


To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, the law requires us to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who forms a business relationship or conducts an occasional transaction via Relay. When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver’s license or other identifying documents.
