Ever needed a new pair of shoes or an outfit and can’t wait for payday? Well here is the answer.
Afterpay is a system whereby you pay in four installments for the item that you want but haven’t got all the funds to pay for. I first heard of them via Melbourne Central’s shopping and ever since then I wanted to try it.
Afterpay works on your phone and everywhere that accepts it. But you have to over 18 to pay for things with this system.
But it is easy to sign up online. All you have to do is have a credit card to do so. It is fast and easy and your payment is approved within minutes. The item is then shipped to your house. You then repay the money in four easy installments over a fortnight.
If you forget one it doesn’t matter, they just add the money on to your next installment.
I picked out my shoes in store and then placed the order online. The shoes were $129 ($32 in four easy installments). After you pay you then get the email from Skechers. The shoes came a few days later and boy did I like them. They were light weight shoes which is great for a runner as it means that they can run faster.
My housemate signed for the package.
It is god darn hard to do so in store as not many stores are on board unlike what the website says.
Do sign up and use Afterpay if you want stuff quicker but don’t have the money to afford it straightaway. You will pay it back eventually.
