How does Clearpay work?

Clearpay partners with online retailers looking to offer simple third-party financing solutions for customers who want to buy now but need to pay later. Customers shop at their chosen online store as usual and at the checkout select Clearpay as their payment method.

Once you have selected Clearpay as your payment method you will sign in to, or create, your Clearpay account and provide your bank or card details.

Your final payment amount for your shopping will be split into four equal amounts, the first of which will be due immediately as you confirm your order and the other three of which will be automatically taken from your account at two-week intervals.

    I’ve ordered twice of Clearpay. First order was for 50 something then paid that up in just 1 week. Second was for 54.99. Paid that up within a week. I’m trying to order again and it keeps declining me, have you got any idea why?

      Hi Tina,

      Thank you for getting in touch with Finder.

      I’m afraid that we do not have the info on declined Clearpay application, however please note that Clearpay does not approve 100% of orders. They are committed to ensuring they support responsible spending. When determining which orders to approve, they considers a number of different factors. As an example, the longer you have been a shopper with Clearpay and the more orders you have successfully repaid, the more likely you will be able to spend more.

      I hope this helps.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!

      Cheers,
      Jeni

    Hi there,

    My friend recommended me to clear pay. She said I can pay on the 4th week instead of just 3 separate instalments, is this true?

    Regards,

      Hi Darcy,

      Thanks for contacting Finder.

      Clearpay allows you to pay for your purchase over 4 installments due every 2 weeks, in accordance with the relevant Payment Schedule. They will automatically take the second, third and fourth payments from your bank account at two-week intervals. There is nothing mentioned on their T&C that you can skip the 1st to the 3rd payment. If you won’t be able to pay Clearpay on time, you should contact them as soon as possible. Please checkout their T&C to know more about this.

      I hope that helps.

      Kind Regards,
      Faye
