How does Laybuy work?
Laybuy offers online shoppers a simple interest free payment plan that lets you secure your purchase today and pay for it in 6 equal payments, once a week for 6 weeks.
Laybuy performs a credit check to obtain a credit score on all new users upon registration. Once your credit score has been confirmed and your account has been verified, Laybuy assigns your Laybuy limit and you can begin shopping immediately.
The first payment equal to one sixth of the purchase price occurs once your order is completed. The remaining 5 payments are processed each week on the day of the original purchase from your nominated card. No further action is required and all account information including a payment schedule can be viewed, at any time, through your Laybuy account.
Once you select Pay by Laybuy at checkout and complete your purchase, the merchant/retailer ships any products directly to you at the delivery address you have requested.

How much does Laybuy cost and is there a late fee?
Laybuy doesn't charge you any interest or upfront fees.
If you miss a payment you will be notified immediately. A late payment fee (£6 GBP / $8 USD / $10 NZD or AUD) may be charged in respect of each payment you fail to make on time. Any payment default may also result in our debt collection service contacting you and/or your credit score being affected.
Will my payments come out automatically?
They sure will! Laybuy sends you a reminder email the day before your instalment is due. Keep an eye out for this email.
you have not made a payment through your account before the scheduled payment date, Laybuy automatically takes payment from your designated debit or credit card on the due date.
If your payment fails, or an instalment is missed, Laybuy sends you a notification email to let you know so you can make the payment before a late payment fee is activated.
You can check your scheduled payment dates at any time by logging into your account at https://www.laybuy.com/consumer#/account
No one wants to incur late payment fees and you can avoid these by simply making sure you have sufficient funds available on your designated credit or debit card. However, Laybuy will email you to let you know 24 hours before you incur the late payment fee 🙂
What if I can't make my payment?
When a payment for an instalment fails, we send you an email to let you know straight away that this has failed. The payment will then be attempted again 24 hours later and if this fails a late fee is applied. If this instalment remains unpaid for a further 7 days, another fee will be applied.
To avoid late fees, be sure to log into your account and click Pay Now next to this declined instalment to bring this back up to date 🙂
To ensure you don't get into too much trouble, Laybuy will not allow you to make a new purchase until your declined payments (instalments and late fees), are all paid.
We understand that things can happen and circumstances changes so we have a Laybuy Financial Assistance and Hardship page that provides further information on how we can help.

Can I Still Use Laybuy While My Address Verification is Pending?
Absolutely! As long as it is within the 30 day window from your first purchase you can still continue to make purchases while your submission is under review from our team.
What is 'Your Limit'? And how can I get an increase?
The amount that you see on your dashboard or app is your available limit at the point in time you are going to shop.
As you make orders with Laybuy and pay these off, your limit will automatically increase - keep an eye out for the email 🙌🛍
