The Payment App (TPA) is a fintech company that’s developed a suite of payment apps, a proprietary payment gateway, and a data engine to help Australian business sell more while at the same time reducing fraud.

The Payment App’s vision is to move beyond the “transaction” to create a better payment “experience”. By providing businesses with access to more data and consumers with a better and easier way to pay, TPA strives to create a more tailored experience for the customer, resulting in more satisfied customers and businesses.

In a world where more than 40% of online transactions are made using a mobile device, global demand is rapidly growing for payment gateway software. Pioneers such as PayPal and Square have opened up the marketplace. But there is an opportunity to take online payments to the next level.

The global spread of COVID-19 has only accelerated the use of “tap-and-go” mobile payments. In Australia, the move towards becoming a cashless society has been hastened by warnings about potentially contaminated cash. In the post-COVID-19 economic recovery, the shift to online payments, including “tap-and-go” mobile payments, will be swift and extensive.

The Problem

The current market is characterised by simple payment technology providers that facilitate online payments.These companies are extremely limited in the types of transactions they can process as well as the data-driven,“value-add” functionality that can simultaneously reduce the incidence of non-payment and fraud.

No complex Transactions

Payment software is currently two-dimensional and doesn’t allow for more complex transactions such as bill-splitting or buy-now, pay later options. As transactions become more complex, there is a need for more comprehensive software to manage the complexity of modern transactions.

Security limitations

Some payment software doesn’t take responsibility for “Know Your Customer” or “Anti Money Laundering” screening. As cyber criminals become more sophisticated, the need for instant verification of payments will be critical.

No customer data

Transactions have the potential to create a rich source of data, but most companies record very little detail about the transactions. There is significant potential to record more data about transactions that can produce business intelligence.

Transactional – no customer “experience”

Better data allows businesses to tailor the customer experience. This is an area with significant growth potential as the data can be used to build an end-to-end customer experience.



The Payment App

The Payment App will change the way in which consumers, merchants, brands and financial institutions interact with each other. Purchasing relationships with merchants have changed, becoming more complex and moving away from the cash register.

Our collaborative approach has created an API driven, machine learning platform offering an innovative and mutually rewarding way for consumers and merchants to interact.

Fast, cashless payments

Frictionless, fast, cashless payments. On demand, or prepaid with push or pull payment mechanics allows users to capture the best buy, pay later or split with friends.

POS integration

POS integration eliminates friction and enables 1:1 dynamic pricing mechanisms from merchants or brands to leverage inventory & time as marketing mechanics.

1:1 deal engine

1:1 deal engine allows merchants or brands to target users by location or demographic with relevant deals to drive sales, clear inventory or push traffic.

Payment gateway

Our payment gateway provides a platform for fast and secure payments in real time with a depth of transactional data not currently provided by existing companies.

Big data

We provide rich and smart consumer behaviour, and purchase data incorporating demographics utilising the SKU data that we capture from our POS integrations.




Market Potential

Business Model

The Payment App has developed three core business units that have the potential to scale quickly and extensively.

Payment Services

The company’s payment gateway and other payment services can be integrated by any merchant (bricks and mortar store, ecommerce website or mobile app).

TPA charges a monthly subscription for their payment services, in addition to a fee of between 3-5% for every transaction. The more companies using TPA’s payment services the more recurring revenue the TPA generates.

Payment Apps

TPA has also developed its own payment apps and formed joint venture companies with other businesses to deploy payment apps in specific markets. The payment app pathway to market allows for mass connectivity to key industry sectors spanning petrol, real estate, alcohol and labour hire. The payment apps have their own individual business strategies and growth potential.


Over time the data generated by TPA’s data engine will become valuable to merchants and others. TPA will ultimately offer data-as-a-service to companies seeking information about existing and potential customers to tailor offerings more closely to customer needs and wants. Data will be provided on a subscription basis as well as one-off reports.

TPA's Payment Apps


Clipp allows hospitality patrons to pay for food and drinks in bars, restaurants and hotels. TPA acquired the Clipp IP and brand in June 2020, and we have commenced re-development of the App ahead of a planned re-launch post COVID-19 restrictions.
Since 2014 and prior to TPA’s acquisition, Clipp has generated $27.5 million in revenue from 350,000 transactions and acquired 130,000 users.


Fill stops Australians being ripped off by the petrol industry. Fill helps users find cheaper fuel every day, from any brand of petrol retailer through intelligent mechanics, then pay on their mobile contactlessly. Users can lock in a cheap price and pay later, buy on demand or pre-buy a spot price special pushed out by a petrol retailer.


Shift helps businesses access extra staff to cover rostered shifts at short notice. Shift Staff matches available and qualified staff via in App job ads. Shift Staff then supplies the staff as a labour hire agency handling all payroll requirements on behalf of the business needing their shifts covered.


Rentive allows renters to control their rental payments, rental history and rental applications from their smartphone with payments via credit card, Paypal, eftpos or direct debit. In Australia, $40 Billion in rent is paid per annum from 59.8 million fortnightly payments.


Investio enables conscientious and ethical investment opportunities in the green, sustainable, renewable and bio-investment spaces at a micro level and beyond. In the last two years, growth globally in sustainable investments grew 30.4% to $30.7 Trillion.


  • Unikorn Investments - Unikorn Investments is a commercial property fund that facilitates fractional ownership in commercial real estate. TPA has secured a 24 month exclusive contract to provide payment gateway, KYC and AML payment services and data services
  • Clipp - TPA is poised to benefit from their recent acquisition of Clipp due to the pivot to 100% cashless payments across the hospitality sector due to COVID-19. TPA also manages Clipp’s payment gateway and provides payment and data services. Clipp has previously generated revenue of $27.5m since 2014.
  • Data Zoo - Australian data and identity verification company Data Zoo has contracted TPA to provide data services to supplement and augment their product suite.
  • Barclays MIS - Leading residential and commercial property collections and debt recovery business Barclay MIS has engaged TPA to provide key payment services to support their business back end.

Rus W (OnMarket member) on 30/06/2020

Hi Jack, happy to have a conversation with you about that. If you'd like to reach out to the team at On Market they can pass on my details to you and we can have a chat about it. Cheers, Allan.

Allan E (The Payment App Pty Ltd representative) replied to Jack I on 02/07/2020
Issue price in relation to potential future IPO pricing

Hello Allan, thank you for your responses to date on this page. My question is around the value of shares at the above stated issue price ($0.636) versus potential future IPO pricing. I've noticed a pattern of IPO issue price around $0.20 and was just wondering how confident investors at the equity crowdfunding stage can be that later stage pricing will be at, or preferably above, the $0.636 in this current offer? Cheers.

Zoran V (OnMarket member) on 09/07/2020

Hi Zoran, it's hard for me to comment about other IPO issue prices without knowing the history of the pricing relating to their issued capital and the valuations of their businesses.... In general, you would hope an IPO issue price would be greater than what existing shareholders had paid - especially if the purpose of the IPO was for a liquidity event. It's hard to say whether around $0.20 represented a valuation premium for those businesses and at that price what upside the existing shareholders would see. You would hope, if not expect that it would but it's very much a case by case scenario. I hope that helps you. Please feel free to reach out to me through OnMarket if you'd like to have a direct conversation. Cheers, Allan

The Payment App Pty Ltd
Payments & KYC fintech, revolutionising payment services to increase sales and reduce fraud


RBA’s 2019 Consumer Payments Survey highlighted that the number of Australians that use cash for transactions continues to fall. In 2018, there was $8.4 billion of mobile commerce transactions in Australia as well as $184 billion spent on global Big Data acquisition in 2019.  COVID-19 has shown that consumers will willingly accept and embrace digital payments, and with that there is a need to have a cashless society where there is a rich ecosystem of data and payments interacting.


The current market is characterised by simple payment technology providers that facilitate online payments. These companies are extremely limited in the types of transactions they can process – no complex transactions, security limitations, no customer data.


The Payment App’s vision is to move beyond the “transaction” to create a better payment “experience”. Providing businesses with access to more data and consumers with a better and easier way to pay, TPA creates a more tailored experience for the customer, resulting in more satisfied customers and businesses.
