Flexibility to book what you need, and earn what you want.
tappON's flexible pricing model is designed so that members can receive value for supports they need, and Support Professionals can earn more for their hard work.
We believe you should have freedom over your finances, and the tools to effectively manage how you work.
tappON works with multiple funding avenues, including the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), Aged and Home Care Packages, as well as privately paying individuals.
tappON’s pricing model is simple, Support Professionals choose their hourly rates, these are then displayed on their profile. Individuals can then book them directly at this rate, or negotiate privately for a more suitable price. The Support Worker will then get paid the agreed rate, less 20%. No hidden or extra costs.

A successful relationship relies on communication.
tappON’s system exists to empower members to find their right fit to achieve their goals, while support professionals earn an income providing services they love. By giving users the tools to communicate and being upfront & clear on rates, tappON means less time spent worrying about costs and more time to focus on support.
We always recommend having a conversation with the member you’re working with to ensure you both agree on rates for services provided. By keeping your rates or your service offering competitive it helps you stand out in the tappON community and increases your chances of winning work.
