Frequently Asked Questions

Got a question about how the Cleanaway and Earlytrade Marketplace partnership works?

Why is this being made available now?

At Cleanaway, we believe the launch of this early payment program is an important step in strengthening sustainable partnerships with our suppliers, giving you more transparency and control to manage your cash flow and working capital.

What is the Supplier Portal?

The portal provides two key features for our entire supplier network:
  1. Simple, user-friendly visibility of all your approved Cleanaway invoices
  2. Utility to request early payment on approved invoices based on a small rate reduction determined by you with complete confidentiality

How do these features work in practical terms?

The easiest and fastest way is to show you. The dedicated Earlytrade Supplier Engagement Team can run you through a demo in 10 minutes. Schedule a demo.

Is it free of charge?

The facility and its features are completely free of charge and registration takes less than five minutes. Access to early payment is administered through an ethical market-based offer system where suppliers can nominate a small amount they are comfortable to forgo in exchange for earlier payment.

Does this change the way I am paid for Cleanaway invoices?

Nothing changes to the remittance process. You will be paid exactly the same way, directly by Cleanaway, only sooner.

What is the benefit for me?

Early payments will be of benefit to your business if:
  • Your cost of borrowing from other facilities is higher than a rate you nominate through the portal. In most scenarios this will be the case.
  • You need or want to improve your financial metrics ahead of reporting periods. Such as month, quarter, half or full-year ends.
  • You need additional control over fair and flexible working capital during any other periods in the business cycle.

Who is Earlytrade?

We selected Earlytrade to administer our supplier facility for invoice monitoring and early payments as the ethical leader in supply chain initiatives and technology across APAC.
