Afterpay is available at a wide range of stores across Australia and New Zealand. However, shopping Instore is currently only applicable in the country that you created your Afterpay Account in.
So if you have an NZ account you cannot shop Instore within Australia (sorry)
The Afterpay in-store process starts from your mobile phone and takes under 2 minutes to create an account. If you are already an Afterpay customer, simply download the App and sign in.
Once you’ve got your barcode, take the item you want up to the counter. Your item will be scanned and your payment will be processed like any other Afterpay purchase. Yay! The barcode is valid for 10 minutes and if it expires before you can use it, just refresh the barcode to create a new one!
Good to know:
It is important to remember as part of our normal process we will run a check or 'pre-authorisation' on your card for an amount up to the equivalent to the amount of your first instalment assuming you spend the full amount. These funds will be held until your barcode is used or expires - whichever comes first.
Some other important things to remember:
- If you want to shop at more than one store, you’ll need a new barcode for each purchase
- If you get an Error Message noting a problem with your card – that probably means you haven’t selected a preferred payment method on your account. Just check whether there is a blue dot next to one of the cards stored on your account. If not, then pick your preferred card for payment and you’re good to go!
- 25% of the total purchase may be required on the day
