  • What is Afterpay?

    Afterpay is a new payment option available for online orders only. Afterpay allows customers residing in Australia to have their online orders shipped to them as per normal and pay this order off over four equal instalments, interest free. Think of Afterpay like a modern-day layby, instead of having to wait for items customers get to have the product straight away for a quarter of the price! (Or zero upfront if an existing customer)

  • Why is Rivers introducing this new payment option?

    Afterpay is being introduced as another payment option, alternative layby service, allowing you to order and receive items straightaway, without having to wait until you can pay in full for the item/s. Using Afterpay means you can pay your order off over four instalments, plus you can secure items before they sell out. Essentially, Afterpay is an alternative payment option to the traditional lay-by service offered instore.

  • Who can use Afterpay?

    Afterpay is available as a payment option if you:

    Live in Australia.

    Are at least 18 years old.

    Use an Australian credit or debit card to make the purchase.

  • What will Afterpay cost me?

    You will not pay anything extra when you choose to use Afterpay as your payment option, as there is no interest added. You will pay your instalments directly to Afterpay in accordance with the payment schedule Afterpay will send to you via email. If a payment is due but not received by Afterpay in accordance with their payment schedule, a $10 late payment fee will be charged, with a further $7 late payment fee added seven days later if the payment remains unpaid. In addition, because an Afterpay account is linked to your credit or debit card, standard card fees and charges may be applicable. You should refer to your card issuer’s terms and conditions for full details of these.

  • What products can be paid for using Afterpay as the payment method?

    Afterpay is available for all merchandise online excluding Gift (and eGift) Cards, orders under $20 or over $1,000.

  • Is there a minimum spend for Afterpay?

    Yes, your order will need to be over $20.

  • Is there a maximum spend for Afterpay?

    Yes, the maximum order value (including delivery) for Afterpay is AUD$1,000.

  • How are the Afterpay instalments on each product page calculated?

    The Afterpay instalments quoted on a product web page represent ¼ (25%) of that product’s current price excluding any delivery charges that may be applicable.

    Delivery costs will however be included in the quoted instalment rate payable when you have selected your preferred delivery method at checkout, and have selected Afterpay as your preferred payment option. This rate will also be consistent with that quoted in the order confirmation email you’ll receive direct from Afterpay detailing your fortnightly payment schedule.

  • Where can I find out more about Afterpay?

    The Afterpay website provides a very comprehensive list of FAQs here. If you still can’t find out what you need here, contact Afterpay directly by emailing info@afterpay.com.au or calling 1300 100 279.

  • Can I split an order to pay some by Afterpay and the rest by some other means? (eg. credit card)

Afterpay Payments

  • When will my four Afterpay instalments need to be paid?

    If you are a first time Afterpay customer, or have yet to complete a full payment cycle with Afterpay, your first payment will be taken at the time of your order transaction with the remaining three payments deducted by Afterpay from your nominated credit or debit card each fortnight over the following 6 weeks. The funds for the first payment must therefore be available on your nominated card at the time of checkout.

    Once you have completed your first full payment cycle with Afterpay, the initial payment for any future purchases you pay for using Afterpay will be debited 14 days after the transaction, where the total transaction value is less than $500. If the purchase value is equal to or exceeds $500, the first instalment must be paid at the time of the transaction occurring.

    The payment relationship is between you and Afterpay, and at any time you can log into your Afterpay account to see your payment schedule and make a payment before the due date if you wish. Otherwise Afterpay will automatically deduct the instalments from your debit or credit card every fortnight.

  • How will Afterpay transactions (instalments or refunds) show on my debit or credit card statement?

    The transaction will appear as AFTERPAY PTY LTD MELBOURNE AUS.

Afterpay Communications

  • What information or communications will I receive direct from Afterpay?

    Similar to Rivers’s transactional emails for orders, Afterpay will also send emails to you automatically once you have successfully created your Afterpay account.

  • How will I know when I need to pay my further three instalments?

    Upon placing an order with Rivers using Afterpay as your payment method, you will be sent an email from Afterpay showing your payment schedule. You will also be notified prior to each payment being due.

  • How will I know which products can be purchased using Afterpay?

    On product pages on Rivers website, you will see the Afterpay logo and instalment amount detailed under the purchase price. If this is not displayed, it means the product is not available for Afterpay.
