What is the option to pay in installments on Shop Pay?
When checking out with Shop Pay, you now have the option to pay now or later. Paying in installments on Shop Pay allows you to split your purchase amount into four equal, biweekly payments with 0% APR, or in monthly installments with no hidden or late fees*.
In some instances, your first payment is due when you make your purchase; otherwise, your first payment is due 2 weeks after your purchase. The next 3 remaining installments will be automatically charged to your card saved on Shop Pay every 2 weeks. And don't worry, you'll get an email reminder before each payment to keep you in the know.
This feature applies to orders totaling $50 - $1000 (excluding tax and shipping), and is available to US customers only at this time.
