We’re introducing

new plans and prices

You don’t have to do anything. 

We’ll take care of things.

We’ve designed new plans and prices to support our growing customer needs. Our new plans and prices will be effective as of 1 December 2018 to support households and businesses of different sizes.

We still have a Basic plan which is still free to join and pay-as-you-go. For those with more bills, we will be introducing a new Premium plan for $10 per month. Just flick & forget! Take photos of your paper bills and flick-em into Gobbill for auto payment. It’s great for busy households, sole traders and micro-businesses.

Three new Business plans are also being introduced to suit different business sizes. These plans range from Small, Medium to Large. See all our new plans and prices>>

The transition:

For personal users, you’ll be transitioned to the Basic free plan or we will contact you if you have different needs.
For business users, the plan will remain $25 per month with card and bank payment fees disappearing. This means you’ll be paying less. However, the quota of digitised documents each month will drop from 50 to 30 documents.

Financial Review features Cointree & Gobbill partnership

August 20th, 2018 Posted by Gobbill News, Payments, Startup 0 thoughts on “Financial Review features Cointree & Gobbill partnership”

Major telcos, utility providers and insurers may not have jumped on the cryptocurrency bandwagon, but thanks to two local fintech startups that no longer matters, with cryptocurrency owners now able to pay any bill in crypto.

Cryptocurrency exchange Cointree and automated billing platform Gobbill will let Australians pay bills with cryptocurrency, regardless of whether the business itself accepts the digital currency. Gobbill acts as a go-between, taking the funds from its users and paying the bills on their behalf.

Gobbill co-founder Shendon Ewans admits that he was late to the cryptocurrency party, only beginning to dabble in it early last year, but said that’s what made a partnership with Cointree attractive.

“I have traded, but not very successfully. That was the appeal of Cointree. I’m a novice and I’m surrounded by people at [fintech co-working space] Stone and Chalk, who are deep crypto specialists,” he said.

“Fast forward into the future and what we’re seeing is, like it or not, this will be part of our daily lives. Gobbill already let people pay bills from their cards or bank accounts, so now they can pay in cryptocurrency too.”

Gobbill and Cointree partnership enables automated bill payments with cryptocurrencies.

August 20th, 2018 Posted by Featured, Gobbill News, Media Releases, Startup 0 thoughts on “Gobbill and Cointree partnership enables automated bill payments with cryptocurrencies.”

Melbourne, Australia 20th August, 2018 – Bill payment AI-automation company Gobbill, has today announced it has partnered with cryptocurrency exchange and digital wallet company Cointree, enabling users to pay bills with their cryptocurrencies.

The global alliance will allow users from both platforms to pay household bills using their crypto coins stored in Cointree’s wallet. Cointree’s platform supports a wide range of digital currencies, including Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin and more.

Gobbill’s platform users can also link a crypto wallet in their account and elect to pay their bills either by credit card, bank account or a specified cryptocurrency regardless of whether the biller accepts the desired payment method.

Shendon Ewans, CEO and co-founder of Gobbill, said the partnership would add significant value to customers who were increasingly looking to adopt digital currencies. The partnership aims to enable households and small businesses to easily and safely pay any bill with any coin.

“Digital currencies are becoming mainstream, and our view at Gobbill is to support customer choice and convenience. We anticipate a surge in the number of customers who would like to pay their bills in crypto in the coming years. Our partnership with Cointree will cater to this market and ensure Gobbill continues to remain ahead of the curve when it comes to allowing our users to pay their bills automatically, while knowing they’re protected from fraud and scams,” he said.

“We are excited at Cointree to be partnering with Gobbill,” said Cointree CEO, Shane Stevenson. “This is a great opportunity for both companies to leverage our strengths and enable Australians to pay everyday bills with their choice of digital currencies.”

The announcement comes following Cointree’s launch of a new and refreshed platform and is looking to expand into international markets. The partnership between Gobbill and Cointree supports both companies’ international expansion into new markets. The announcement also builds on Gobbill’s recent partnership announcements with iSignthis (ASX:ISX) for eKYC and payment processing, and wealth management leader myprosperity, which will see Gobbill rolled out broadly to users via white-label agreements in Australia and overseas.

Gobbill has been bootstrapped funded to date and is seeking investment to support its commercial growth.
