What is ZipPay?

ZipPay works like an instant online credit card that effectively offers credit of up to $1000 that can be spent only at participating merchants. Shoppers can make their repayments either weekly, fortnightly, or monthly, as long as a minimum repayment is made each month.

What are the Positives?

The application and approval process is done online and can be done at our website checkout if you don’t have an account. If successful your can get your order processed without delay and you pay later at you convenience.
Note: ZipPay will decide in the application whether your limit will be $250, $500 or $1000.

What are the Negatives?

ZipPay swaps interest charges for flat fees. For every month there's a balance owing you're hit with a $6 fee. Fail to cover that payment within three weeks and you're charged another $5. If you were to miss all your repayments on a $100 item for instance, you would have to spend an extra $33 on fees.
Note: AfterPay would charge $68 on the same $100 item if you missed all of your repayments.

There is also the chance you could be hit with fees from your bank as ZipPay's repayments are set to direct debit by default. If your account has not enough in it, your bank may charge you overdrawn fees. To confirm this you should contact your bank first.

How does ZipPay make Money?

ZipPay makes money primarily in two ways: by charging customers fees and by charging retailers a percentage every time a sale is processed on its platform.

What's the most expensive purchase that can be made?

ZipPay accounts are capped at $1,000 but it possible to increase your credit limit to $3,000 with a sister company called ZipMoney that sells loans between $1000 to $3000. The two sibling companies have upgraded their infrastructure so that the customers of ZipPay can apply for a ZipMoney account.
Note: ZipPay is a free account setup but ZipMoney is not a free account setup
