Below are five fintechs to know about this fortnight!


Payble

Payble is the flexible billing add-on that improves customer satisfaction. The mission is to end billxiety, the avoidable feeling of distress and anxiety caused by a bad billing or payment experience. They help increase revenue for businesses and local governments by offering their customers friendly, flexible payment options when they want or need them. The platform leverages Open Banking to identify customers who’d benefit from flexible payment options (including those in arrears or at risk of missing a payment), and engages them with a flexible solution like instalment plans, payment extensions or covid relief. Payble easily adds-on to existing billing systems, and our proactive approach improves customer satisfaction while significantly reducing the admin and operational cost of collections.

Payble was the first payments company to be accredited and active in Australia’s open banking regime, the Consumer Data Right, and is backed by the Commonwealth Bank as a major shareholder.
