Like most great ideas, YouPay was the answer to a real world problem. Wanting to buy his partner a gift but wanting her to choose what she wanted, our Founder realised it was impossible to pay for the order without having to generate the entire order himself. What he needed was a way for his partner to share just the payment step.
Having the resources of the team at MyWork (one of Australia’s leading digital design agencies) available to build the initial prototype of YouPay meant that getting YouPay to market was achievable in a very quick time-frame.
YouPay is a venture funded Australian business lead by a team of technical and financial industry experts.
