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.
YouPay is patent pending (Application Number 2020902167.)

We have added gift card icons to the stores that require the use of gift cards. You can create YouPay carts at these stores exclusively via the YouPay app. YouPay carts created at these stores can be shared anywhere, and paid from outside the YouPay app like any other YouPay cart.
Stores without the pink gift card icon have YouPay directly integrated. You can create YouPay carts at these stores from both inside the YouPay app and directly on the store’s website.
So that you can YouPay it at more stores than ever! We have partnered with Prezzee, a digital gift card platform so that you can share YouPay carts at a wider range of stores from within the YouPay app – even if they don’t offer YouPay directly.
Stores with the pink gift card carts work almost exactly the same as all other stores that offer YouPay.
When your cart is paid for you will be sent a digital gift card to use at the store so you can buy the items in your cart.
YouPay stores with the pink gift card icon require the Shopper creating the cart to add an amount to cover shipping. This is the ensure that the gift card you receive will cover your entire order, including shipping.
Stores that offer YouPay directly will automatically add accurate shipping to your order.
When gift cards are used to pay for your YouPay cart, sometimes the total of the YouPay cart may not be an exact match to the required gift card value. Gift cards can only be issued in $5 increments, therefore a YouPay cart must be a round number, divisible by $5.
For example, if you create a YouPay cart for $29 worth of items from a store, your YouPay cart will be rounded to $30. The Payer will be charged $30 and you will sent a $30 gift card to spend at your chosen store.
Stores that offer YouPay directly (stores without the pink gift card icon) do not require rounding up.
Prezzee is a digital gift card platform that we have partnered with to ensure that you can create a share YouPay carts at more stores than ever. You can visit their website at prezzee.com.au to find out more.
The expiry date of each gift card depends on the retailer or brand. You can check the expiry date of your gift card by logging into your YouPay account and viewing the cart details, you can also view these details from your Prezzee account.
In most cases, you can keep the gift card and use it for future purchases until the balance is fully depleted or until the card’s expiry date. Each retailer has their own gift card use policy. Please refer to the retailer’s policy.
Gift cards purchased via YouPay cannot be refunded. If you have used a gift card to purchase items from a retailer and wish to return or exchange an item, you need to refer to the retailer’s gift card policy.
