    Keating is someone's name.

    It means to pay cash for something in advance.

    Re: difficult sentence

    Pay "up front" means you will pay for goods or services before you receive them rather than after. It doesn't necessarily need to be "in advance" of days or weeks.

    To get an idea of what I mean, most restaurants do not require you to pay "up front". Instead, you pay after you eat.

    "Up front" can also mean "before" in other usages. For example: Let's discuss the details up front.
