Who is Payright?
Payright is an Australian payment plan provider developed for merchants to accelerate return-on-effort and for making things more affordable to consumers, by spreading the cost of purchases over time.
Payright provides merchants a buy-now, pay later flexible payment option to offer their customers, intended for bigger ticket items that are more considered purchases rather than smaller impulse-driven buys. Payright practices responsible lending and performs extensive identification and credit checks to ensure a customer’s repayment capability. Merchants are paid upfront and in full on the same day and include a diverse mix of broad-reaching products and services such as direct sales businesses, home improvement, education, photography, dental, and health and beauty.
Founded by brothers Piers and Myles Redward, Payright is based in Melbourne, Australia and is a privately owned company.
