Own it now, pay later with Zip

If you're looking at making a large purchase from your home, garage gym or studio space, you can now spread the cost of your investment (upto £800) across  with 4 equal fortnightly payments and all interest-free.

Paying with Zip online is easy. Shop online via our website, just as you normally would. When you get to the payment page (after adding your delivery details), select Zip as a payment method. If it’s your first time using Zip, you’ll need to enter some personal details (just name, date of birth and address) so that Zip can do a quick automatic ID check and credit assessment. Their system does this in real-time and if it’s all approved, and you agree on the instalment schedule, they will take the first instalment. Once accepted, the we will send the goods to you as we would with any other payment method - Easy at that!

 

Nope, Zip are not like traditional finance companies. As long as you pay your scheduled payments on time you will only pay the price advertised online and not a penny more. But if you miss a scheduled payment, and don’t process a payment before midnight on the day it is due, they do charge an £4 default fee and a further £4 for every week it is outstanding. So make sure you have money in your account in advance of your payments coming out. Zip email you in advance every time as a reminder.

Your credit/spending limit is set based on a number of factors, but this primarily comes from your Credit Score. Over time, your spending limit can increase if you've shown good repayment history with Zip (so keep up with your payments!), or if your Credit Score information is updated. If you miss or default on your Zip payments, then your limit will decrease so make sure you pay on time. To learn more about your Credit Score and credit history, get in touch with TransUnion.

Typically our maximum spending limit given is £800, and exact credit allocated is based on individual credit assessments. If you purchase regularly using Zip and always make your repayments on time your spending limit may increase. Our minimum order value is £50

Given that Zip are giving you access to finance, their system assesses a number of factors to work out your spending limit (primarily a Credit Check) so if you don't meet the minimum requirements, you may be declined.
