Afterpay is a new payment option that allows you to buy without paying anything upfront. Payment is made over four instalments, but your order is sent straight away.
I’ve used it and I think it’s great, but it’s so tempting to keep buying!
They are good with sending reminders about upcoming payments (which are automatically deducted from your account) but it’s still something for shopaholics or bad money managers to watch out for.
If you get too excited with using Afterpay without monitoring, you could forget how much you need to repay and find yourself in trouble!

  • My hubby is stuck on the home shopping show TVSN at the moment. He’s convinced himself we need another surround sound system (we don’t!) Some bench top ovens and rings! And he’s decided he wouldn’t mind getting a guitar and teach himself to play, with the help of Keith Urban. I really need to watch his pending at the minute


  • It sounds like a good option for smart shoppers.. But easily bad ones could get caught out.. Lucky im smart and hate debt..


  • Haven’t heard about this but thanks for the heads up – it does sound very tempting!


  • I heard about this and it is tempting but l will give it a miss!


  • I only ever pay cash.

    • Thanks for sharing your experience and story too.
