Our Solutions

We offer a range of solutions to help schools manage fee payments.

Flexible payment plans

Our tailored payment plans allow schools to provide flexible payment options while maintaining cash flow.

Financial assessments

Our assessment service helps schools evaluate a family’s financial situation to determine their eligibility for bursaries, scholarships and financial assistance.

Receive upfront payments

Edstart Pay Chart

Unlike a traditional payment plan or direct debit arrangement, schools do not have to wait for fees to trickle in during the year.

Edstart pays school fee invoices in full when they are due (e.g. every term or semester) to help schools maximise cash flow and reduce the risk of bad debt.

Working with Edstart

Easy to set-up

There are no process or system changes required. Continue issuing invoices or statements and Edstart will pay the school using your preferred payment method.

Dedicated support

Our team can provide a range of support to your school. This includes creating co-branded websites, tailored brochures and flyers, and regular reporting.

Low transparent costs

Edstart has lower costs than equivalent alternatives and our products have simple fee structures that are easy to manage.

Case study: Bishop Druitt College

Bishop Druitt College is a leading independent school in Coffs Harbour on the North Coast of NSW.

Our Edstart Pay+ solution has enabled the College to provide support to their family community with flexible payment arrangements, while ensuring the College continues to receive timely collection of fees.

Another appealing aspect about Edstart was the ease of implementation. No change had to be made in the way we issued invoices. It has been a straightforward process."
