What happens when you combine modern day lay-buy payments, ethics, and a strong customer focus? Deferit.
Deferit pays bills. For anyone struggling to make ends meet, this sees lights kept on, but also potentially receiving early payment discounts. It does this for a flat $5 fee up to a balance of $500, allowing the customer to then pay down the balance over time.
At first glance I wondered if there was a market for this: would customers sign up. Talking to one of the founders had the answer: they’ve already had tens of thousands of customers sign up, all in less than a year. www.deferit.com.au
