Refereed contract payments


Do you need a faster, cheaper and fairer way to resolve disputes on contracts?

It's a fact of life that buyers and sellers may disagree over the expected quality, costs, scope and delivery times. Unfortunately, when such problems arise, remedying issues can be expensive, time consuming and stressful. Frequently there are even disagreements over the basic facts and the timeline of events. The cost of legal fees and the time to process claims can be crippling for buyer and seller alike. But there is a better way: Contract2Pay.

Contract2Pay is a refereed contract payment platform that minimises legal costs for buyers and sellers, reduces payment times, simplifies contract administration and delivers faster, cheaper and fairer results for both parties - all without the need to hire a lawyer or file complicated paperwork.
