Our Story

Our Mission

We’re on a mission to make paying easy. Brighte’s digital payment platform connects Australian homeowners with solar and home improvement businesses. We provide consumers with access to an affordable, transparent and simple way to pay at the point-of-sale, enabling households to buy what they need today and pay over time. We enable vendors to positively manage their business’ cash flow, maximise sales and grow long-term by providing them with the option to offer friction-less finance solutions at the point of sale.

Our purpose is to enable a brighter future today and we believe that every Australian family deserves access to a sustainable and comfortable home.
