Securing payment like never before.

Cradle Pay is the smart, simple and secure way to manage your project payments. 

Once you've set up your project we take care of the rest from quoting right through to that final payment, all automated so you don't have to worry about a thing.

Create your Project and request your first Milestone payment. We'll notify you when the payment has been collected and secured and from there you're all set to commence works.

3 - Complete the work

With payment and peace of mind secured, you're free to get started on the first Milestone for the Project.

Once you confirm you've completed the agreed works, we'll send your customer a request to release their payment.

With your customer seeing it's a job well done they approve the release of their payment. The money will appear in your bank account within 1 - 3 business days and in the meantime you're free to request the payment for Milestone #2 and continue on the with the Project until completion.
