WHAT IS AFTERPAY?
We all work to budgets, and Afterpay takes the stress out of shopping. It lets you buy what you want today, receive it straight away while you pay for it over four equal fortnightly installments, interest-free. It is the modern day lay by, except you don't have to wait for your beautiful goods.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Just shop online at Gladiator Fitness like you usually would and select Afterpay as your payment method at checkout. You will be redirected to the Afterpay site where complete your purchase. If you haven’t used Afterpay before, a few extra details are needed, like your name and card details to set up an account. We will ship your order out as soon as you complete the purchase as per our normal shipping terms.
WHAT DO I NEED?
You must live in Australia, be over 18 years of age and complete your purchase with a debit or credit card.
DO I GET CHARGED INTEREST?
No you don't! Just like a traditional layby, you won’t be charged interest on what you owe.
WHICH CARDS ARE ACCEPTED?
Afterpay accepts Mastercard and Visa credit and debit cards issued in Australia. If you’re an AMEX cardholder, unfortunately you’ll miss out. Travel prepaid cards, foreign debit and credit cards are also excluded.
HOW SAFE IS IT?
Very. The official Afterpay website states it has the “highest level of security in the payment industry”, so you can probably count on being protected. You might like to know too that Afterpay is an Australian born and bred company that launched in 2015. Of course, if you notice any unusual activity on your account notify your card provider and Afterpay as soon as possible. Note that if your card gets lost or stolen, you must login and change your payment details to an alternative card.
IS THERE A CATCH?
No there isn't! You can simply shop now up to the value of $1,000 AUD, receive your purchase right away and pay it off over four equal fortnightly repayments. For first time Afterpay customers the first payment will be charged at the time of purchase. Existing Afterpay customers will be charged for their first instalment 14 days after their purchase. A detailed payment schedule will be provided by Afterpay at the time of purchase. If you miss a payment to Afterpay you will be charged a $10 late fee, plus a further $7 if the payment still hasn't been made 7 days later. It really is the easy way to shop online!
