What are the best ways to use Buy Now, Pay Later payments? 

  • Stick to your budget and aim to only have one product on Buy Now, Pay Later services. This way, you don’t get caught with troubles when meeting repayments and potentially adding to your credit score.  
  • When setting up your BNPL service, ensure you set up with a debit card, so you’re using your own funds to pay repayments. This also helps you reduce credit card debt and the associated interest.  
  • Save BNPL for special purchases such as the laptop you’ve had your eyes on, instead of the weekly grocery run. This puts you in a better position to use BNPL with structure, while ensuring you don’t keep running into debt.  
  • Set calendar reminders for when payments are due, so you pay on time, thus avoiding late fees. This is especially helpful if you have various items with different repayment dates.  
  • Sync your repayments to match your payday. This means every time you get paid, a small amount of it gets deducted to cover your repayments – so you don’t have to do it!  
  • If you have the capacity to, pay off your repayments earlier. This is one step to more product enjoyment and less debt.  
  • Seek help – if you’re having trouble making repayments, contact your provider straight away to discuss what your options are.  

Upgrade your home appliances, gift your family and friends with the latest tech, or treat yourself.  Whatever the reason, buy it better at Betta with our Buy Now, Pay Later payment options.
