Options to help you better manage your cash flow

Edstart provides two options to help you spread large up-front school fees into more manageable payments. We offer simple repayment plans that fit around your budget and when you get paid.

Edstart Pay

Edstart Pay is a 12-month payment plan for children of all ages. You can pay your annual school fees in weekly, fortnightly or monthly instalments.



Large lump-sum payment due each term.

Smaller payments spread evenly in regular instalments.

Fees and charges

Transaction fee3%
Interest rateNil

The transaction fee is added to your account each time Edstart pays a school on your behalf.

Some of our partner schools absorb the transaction fee so that Edstart Pay becomes entirely free for families.

Edstart Extend

Better suited for high-school, you can extend your school fee payments for up to 5 years after your child completes.

Fees and charges

Transaction fee3%
Interest rate7.90% to 12.90% p.a.

Interest is only charged on the balance of your Edstart account which has been utilised (i.e. the funds that have actually been paid to a school).

Interest rates are personalised based on each applicant’s credit profile, and are typically set between 7.90% to 12.90% p.a.

There are no early payment or exit fees, so you can change your payment level, make additional payments or close your account at any time with no extra fees or penalties.

A smarter approach to school fees

We help give you peace of mind that your school fees are paid on time, every time. You can better manage your cash flow while your children get a great education.

"The fact that we can pay Edstart off weekly, rather than lump sums to the school, has made a huge difference.

We've got a $30,000 year coming up when they're in Year 11 and 12, so spreading out the impact of that will be a godsend."
