Once the order is approved, your Afterpay account has been created. You’ll be able to make more purchases after that by heading to or downloading the app and setting up a password.

Does Afterpay take the first payment straight away?

For pay-in-4 payments, generally customers are required to make their down payment at the time of purchase, with the remaining three payments deducted every two weeks from your chosen payment method.

For monthly payments, customers may be required to make a down payment at the time of purchase. The remaining payments will be deducted every month from your payment method until all scheduled payments are complete.

For all Afterpay payments, you can log in to your Afterpay account to view your payment schedule and make a payment before the due date if you choose to do so.


Are Afterpay payments automatic?

They can be, and this is the most convenient way to pay. Afterpay has an automatic payment plan to help you stick to your payment due dates. Your next installment will be taken from the original payment method used when you placed your order. You’ll still receive reminders before an installment is due so you can make sure there’s enough in your account to cover the cost, then Afterpay does the rest.


How do I know my Afterpay limit?

The more you pay on time, the more your spending limit will increase. If you’re a new customer, our advice is to start making payments on time and continue over a long period of time to increase your limit. You can find out your available spend limit by logging into your Afterpay account.


How many times can you use Afterpay?

To begin with, you’ll be allowed to make one order within the first 24 hours of creating your Afterpay account. From then on, how you use your account and commit to the community will affect your future allowance. Attempting to make multiple purchases straight away will lead to your orders being declined but using the service responsibly from the off will see the number of orders you can make increase.
