If you have been shopping with Afterpay for some time, and have a really good repayment history. You may find that we defer taking the first payment until 2 weeks after you make your purchase.
In all cases you will be notified on screen if the first payment is due there and then or if it will be deferred by 2 weeks.
First payment higher than the other three?
For some purchases, if your total order amount exceeds your Afterpay-approved spending limit The first payment may be higher than subsequent payments. Afterpay will show you how the instalments are split before you pay.
