At Australian Solar Brokers™, we offer our members the safety and protection of escrow for the purchase of their solar system. 

How it Works

Four Easy Steps

We’ve teamed up with CheckVault™ to provide our members with the security of escrow payments.

The CheckVault payment process works in 4 simple steps:

Step 1: Once you’ve chosen your solar system and are ready to proceed, one of our Brokers will send you a final quote via email using CheckVault. Payment options will be provided to you in the same email.

Step 2: Using your preferred method of payment, you’ll then securely transfer the funds into CheckVault. Your money will be held by Perpetual Corporate Trust – one of Australia’s oldest and most reputable trust companies.

Step 3: Your local installer will then complete your installation with confidence while the money is kept in CheckVault for safe keeping. When the work is done, your installer will request release of payment with the click of a button.

Step 4: Once you’re happy that the work has been completed as agreed, you simply instruct CheckVault to release the payment to the installer. This can be done easily via SMS.

About CheckVault

CheckVault is Australia’s premier secure payment system. Unlike conventional escrow, CheckVault does not act as custodian – instead appointing an independent agent they call the escrow agent. CheckVault’s escrow agent is Perpetual Corporate Trust Limited – one of Australia’s leading Trust companies with over a century of experience.

CheckVault provides a secure escrow service, where client funds (the money being paid for goods or services) are held by a trusted specialist custodian until both the buyer and seller agree to the release of funds. In the event of a dispute, the funds are held by the custodian until the matter is resolved or as directed by a court of competent jurisdiction.

CheckVault Pty Ltd (ABN 46 159 355 781) holds an Australian Financial Services License (AFSL 429768) and is a independent remittance dealer under the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing Act (Cwth) 2006.  CheckVault Pty Ltd is a wholly owned subsidiary of CheckGroup Pty Ltd (ABN 47 159 821 093).
