It sets out the terms and conditions that apply to your purchase of goods or services on the Sites using the extended repayment plan feature described in Section 5 below (the “Installment Feature”).

If you do not want to be bound by this Agreement, you must not make a purchase using the Installment Feature.
2. Our Relationship
By placing an order with us using the Installment Feature, you agree to pay to us, in accordance with this Agreement, the agreed amounts on the dates outlined in your Payment Schedule (as defined below), plus any additional applicable Late Fees (as defined below) if you miss a payment to us on or before the scheduled date, as set out in Section 5 below.
3. Changes to this Agreement
3.1 We may amend this Agreement from time to time. If we make any changes to this Agreement that we deem to be material, we or Afterpay will make a reasonable effort to inform you of such changes, but it is your responsibility to review the Agreement made available via the Afterpay website from time to time to see if it has changed. If you do not agree with the changes, do not place any further orders using the Installment Feature.
3.2 We will not change any terms and conditions for an existing order that has been accepted; the terms and conditions that will apply to an accepted order are the terms and conditions that applied at the time you made the order.
4. Transfers or Assignments
4.1 You cannot transfer or assign any rights you may have under this Agreement without our prior written consent.
4.2 You agree that we may appoint third party collections agencies to collect any amounts owing to us under this Agreement without your consent.
4.3 We may transfer or assign this Agreement, and any rights under this Agreement, to a third party without notice to you or your consent. If, after such assignment, you desire to return goods you purchased from us, or have a complaint regarding your order, please contact us directly, as set forth in Sections 8 and 12, respectively. Note that any questions or complaints regarding the Installment Feature should be directed to Afterpay.
5. Description of the Installment Feature
5.1 To use the Installment Feature, including making changes to your payment method and other personal information, you must create an account with our service provider, Afterpay (your “Afterpay Account”).
5.2 The Installment Feature enables you to pay for goods or services sold through the Sites in installments. Please note that Afterpay may, in its sole discretion, set certain minimum and maximum purchase amounts to use the Installment Feature. A minimum purchase amount of $35 will apply. We may, in our discretion, apply a higher minimum purchase amount. The Installment Feature operates as follows:
(a) First, you place your order with us, create your Afterpay Account (or elect to use an existing Afterpay Account) and identify your preferred method of payment, designating an eligible US-issued credit or debit card as your “Payment Method”. You may change your Payment Method at any time via your Afterpay Account but you may not be able to remove existing Payment Methods until all outstanding payments associated with your Afterpay Account have been made.
(b) Next, we or Afterpay will send you a confirmation of your order, including a payment schedule setting forth a list of payment amounts that Afterpay is entitled to receive from you and the relevant due dates of each payment (your “Payment Schedule”). Your Payment Schedule will also be available through your Afterpay Account.
(c) As described in your Payment Schedule, Afterpay will collect four (4) equal payments (each, an “Installment Payment”) by automatically charging your Payment Method(s) 25% of the purchase price every 2 weeks until paid in full.
(d) Where you make your first Installment Payment at the time you place an order with us, Afterpay will collect this first Installment Payment as our limited payment collection agent. Your payment to Afterpay shall be considered the same as a payment made directly to us and your payment obligation to us for your first Installment Payment shall be extinguished upon receipt of such payment by Afterpay.
5.3 You are responsible for ensuring that you have sufficient funds via your Payment Method available to make Installment Payments on the dates specified in your Payment Schedule.
5.4 Late Payments
(a) There are no fees associated with using the Installment Feature. However, if a payment is not paid prior to the Due Date as specified in your Payment Schedule, and the Installment Payment fails on the Due Date (for example, if your Payment Method is a credit or debit card that has expired or you have entered incorrect information regarding your Payment Method in your Afterpay Account), you will be responsible for the following fees (“Late Fees”):
For example, a $100 order may only have a maximum of three $8.00 Late Fees applied because a fourth Late Fee would equal $32 and exceed 25% of the $100 order value.
(b) You authorize Afterpay to satisfy any monetary liability you owe us by (1) debiting your Payment Method at a later time or date, (2) debiting any other debit or credit card for which you have provided details, (3) offsetting the payment amount against any amounts we or Afterpay may owe to you, or (4) any other legal means.
(c) Afterpay may, at its sole discretion, reasonably delay the application of, or waive wholly or partly, any Late Fee. If Late Fees are or may be incurred as a result of our error, please let Afterpay know, and it will waive or refund such fees, as applicable.
5.5 If you fail to make payments in accordance with your Payment Schedule, Afterpay reserves the right to limit, restrict, suspend or terminate your access to the Installment Feature in the future.
5.6 The Installment Feature is not a loan and there is no interest associated with the use of the feature.
5.7 We or Afterpay do not give any express warranty or guarantee as to the suitability, reliability or availability of the Installment Feature.
6. Installment Payment Authorization
6.1 You agree to make Installment Payments in accordance with your Payment Schedule. You may make early payments through your Afterpay Account. You hereby expressly consent to, authorize and instruct Afterpay to (a) initiate recurring debit card payments from the debit card you specify in your Afterpay Account; or (b) to initiate recurring charges from your specified credit card, for the amounts, and on those scheduled dates, set out in your Payment Schedule. All Installment Payments will be automatically charged to the designated credit or debit card in accordance with your Payment Schedule. You acknowledge that you are giving Afterpay the ability to collect or reverse variable payment amounts from or to your Payment Method, in accordance with your Payment Schedule and the terms of this Agreement.
6.2 You agree to be bound by any rules that your debit or credit card issuer requires for pre-authorized debit or credit card transactions. You are responsible for all fees charged by your financial institution associated with the Installment Payment.
6.3 You must update all changes to your credit/debit card information by logging into your Afterpay Account via Afterpay’s website (or app). If you do not update your credit/debit card information and Afterpay is unable to charge your credit card or withdraw funds from your debit card for the amount due, you will be subject to Late Fees and you may be subject to fees or charges assessed by your financial institution.
6.4 AFTERPAY SHALL NOT BEAR ANY LIABILITY OR RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY LOSSES OF ANY KIND THAT YOU MAY INCUR AS A RESULT OF A PAYMENT MADE ON ITEMS INCORRECTLY BILLED OR FOR ANY DELAY IN THE ACTUAL DATE ON WHICH YOUR ACCOUNT IS DEBITED OR YOUR CREDIT CARD IS CHARGED, except to the extent that such fees or charges arise as a result of Afterpay’s error or system failure. If any fees or charges are imposed as a result of Afterpay’s error or system failure, please provide Afterpay with a copy of the relevant records, and if Afterpay determines such error was made by them then they will reimburse you for the relevant fees or charges.
7. Order Confirmation and Cancellation
7.1 All orders that you place with us that utilize the Installment Feature are subject to approval by Afterpay, in its reasonable discretion. Afterpay may choose not to provide the Installment Feature to you, suspend your Afterpay Account, close your Afterpay Account or to cancel an approved order before the goods or services are delivered or supplied, if:
(a) we or Afterpay reasonably considers this necessary in order to protect the integrity of its systems or the Installment Feature, prevent fraud or otherwise protect against legal, regulatory or non-payment risk;
(b) we or Afterpay reasonably suspects, or is aware, that you have breached this Agreement in a material respect (including by failing to make any payment due under this Agreement on the applicable Due Date); or
(c) we or Afterpay otherwise reasonably consider the order to be suspicious.
7.2 We or Afterpay may choose not to provide the Installment Feature to you at any time for any reason, including but not limited to your history of transactions on our Sites, to prevent fraud or if you violate any term of this Agreement.
7.3 If we or Afterpay cancel your previously approved use of the Installment Feature:
(a) Afterpay will apply a full refund of any amounts you have paid (excluding any chargebacks or other fees incurred by Afterpay in relation to your payment) to your Payment Method or, if that is not possible, to any other payment source as directed by you (and approved by Afterpay), and will cancel any future payments related to that order;
(b) We will not be obliged to deliver the goods (or provide the services) the subject of the order, unless required to do so by law;
(c) You will have no obligation to make any further payments to us, or continue any other ongoing relationship with us, with respect to that order; and
(d) If you wish to proceed with the purchase from us, we may accept an alternative payment method in our discretion, or if required to do so by law.
8.1 If you decide to return goods to the Seller that have been purchased using the Installment Feature, and request a refund, or a return and refund are otherwise accepted or permitted by law, you will directly arrange the return with the Seller and ensure that the goods are returned according to the Seller’s return policy or other instructions or your rights at law.
8.2 The return must be completed within the period specified and in the manner required by the Seller’s returns policy or as otherwise permitted by us.
8.3 Until the Seller has confirmed the return of the goods and has issued a refund for those goods, you will remain liable for the full payment of the goods. During this time, Afterpay may continue to process any Installment Payments in accordance with the dates set out in your Payment Schedule.
8.4 Once the refund has been approved, the Seller will issue a refund to your debit/credit card and/or instruct Afterpay to adjust your Payment Schedule appropriately (including to reduce or cancel any future payments, if necessary). Please note, in the event of partial refunds, refund amounts are taken off the last payment/s first.
For example, if you make a $400 purchase and we approve a $250 refund, we will instruct Afterpay to cancel your third and fourth Installment Payments of $100 and amend your second Installment Payment to $50. Your new Payment Schedule would include two Installment Payments (instead of four) of $100 & $50. If you had already made two Installment Payments of $100 each, a refund of $50 would be applied to your Payment Method, and the remaining two Installment Payments would be cancelled.
