About Us

AdvicePay is a billing and payment workflow platform that enables financial services firms and their advisors to shift their focus toward giving advice to people still building wealth, instead of only those who already have it. Historically, financial planning advice was only available to the affluent, who could afford to pay a financial advisor’s fees directly from their portfolios. We set out to change that, as we believe personal financial planning advice should be available to all. In doing so, we’ve become the very first and only technology solution created specifically for fee-for-service financial planning.

We are headquartered in Bozeman, Montana and we are incredibly proud to be listed on the 2022 Inc. 5000 list of America's Fastest-Growing Private Companies (and #1 in Montana!) as well as being recognized as a 2022 WealthTech 100 company, which places us among the top 100 innovative FinTech providers in the world addressing opportunities faced by the wealth and asset management industries. Additionally, our sister company, XY Planning Network, was nationally recognized as one of The 346 Best Places to Work in 2019 by Inc. magazine and by the 2019 InvestmentNews Excellence in Diversity & Inclusion Awards. And since we work in the same office and have the same awesome core values, we like to say “we basically won too!”


You’ll love working here if you value - and want to contribute to - a positive, inclusive, innovative, and “Get Sh*t Done” culture where teammates help one another succeed and are committed to doing the right thing. If you're up for the challenge of disrupting an industry, join us.


About the Platform

AdvicePay is the industry-leading billing and payment workflow solution created specifically for fee-for-service financial planning. Financial services firms and their advisors benefit from efficient workflows designed exclusively to support their fee-for-service financial planning revenue, including up-to-date compliance and data security management, all in one unified platform.

All of the core functions available within the AdvicePay platform — invoicing, document eSignatures, approvals, and deliverables — can be bundled together in fully customizable and automated sequences that make providing and overseeing fee-for-service financial planning both fast and compliant.

The innovation that AdvicePay has created - facilitating the feasibility, at scale, of a new fee-for-service financial advisor business model is accelerating the entire industry’s ongoing transition from commissions to fees, and from Baby Boomers to serving Gen X and Gen Y clients, from individual RIAs to the country’s largest broker-dealers and their hybrid RIA platforms.”
