What is the process for customer purchases with Laybuy?
- On every product page, buyers will see a label under the price about the 6 interest-free weekly payments but they add the product to their cart as per usual purchases.
- Your customer chooses to “Pay by Laybuy” at checkout, for purchases up to $1,200 initially and pays for their first instalment up front
- Laybuy will pay you the full amount of the purchase within 48 hours, less their commission of 4.75% of the total purchase price - there are no further costs for your business
- You ship the goods to your customer
- Your customer will pay for the rest of their purchase in 5 more instalments
Can customers exceed their Laybuy limit?
You can shop and spend more than your limit if you have a sufficient balance on your debit or credit card to complete the purchase.
However, if you exceed your limit this will change the way in which you will be required to make payments to Laybuy as the excess must be paid at the time of your first instalment.
For example, if you have a limit of $120 and want to purchase an item for $200, your designated debit or credit card will be charged $80 on the date of purchase. That is, the $80 “limit excess” and your payments for the next 5 weeks will be $24 per week.
What is Laybuy?
Laybuy is a new service which shakes up the traditional layby purchasing model. Unlike a traditional layby (or layaway) purchase, your customer takes delivery of the goods upfront and pays for their purchase in 6 interest free weekly payments. Laybuy guarantees to pay you for the purchase within 48 hours less their service fee and Laybuy takes on the credit and fraud risk.
Laybuy can sit as an option alongside traditional card and bank deposit payment methods in your e-commerce checkout and provides your clients with a convenient payment option. Laybuy’s clients have seen order values, conversion rates and new customer acquisitions increase by an average of 30%.
