With LayUp, your customers pay in
instalments via our simple system
The same system handles collections and settlement so that you don’t have to. This creates good financial
habits for them, whilst giving you access to a much larger market.
The customer is required to pay a small deposit (determined by you, the merchant) in order to secure the selected items at the advertised price and activate his/her payment plan. The customer then determines the number of weeks/months that they would like to pay for the product or service, subject to the maximum length of the payment plan (again determined by you, the merchant).
The customer must then fulfill their commitment and only once a payment plan is complete may the goods/services be redeemed.
- Your customers do not need to complete an application process or enter into a loan agreement
- No hidden fees or interest is levied on the total value of goods/services purchased
- Customers are not required to provide personal information that would typically cause delays or to default entirely and for-fit the chosen goods/services
- Various payment plan terms are offered to the customer ranging between 3 – 24 months
- By offering your customers this option, our experience and market research shows that customers are more inclined to buy and/or will likely purchase more as a result of the affordability and flexibility which LayUp provides
- By assisting customers in avoiding unwarranted debt, you increase retention and thereby the likelihood of future purchases
Yes, LayUp offers an omni-channel service for both online and in-store consumers.
- Online: rapid and seamless integration to your existing web-based platform through our dynamic, IT light API (application programming interface)

A deposit is required to secure the desired items now at the advertised price and to activate your payment plan, without having to pay in full. This does not require a credit check or additional information! The deposit payment is included within the total price of your desired item.
The monthly instalments act as payments made towards to the total amount owing for the product/service purchased. Dependant on the terms agreed upon by you and the merchant, these instalments allow for timely incremental amounts to be made instead of paying up-front. This typically results in not having to use credit or going into unwarranted debt.
The split payments is an exciting feature that allows you to split the total cost of your order with your family/friends (guests). This feature enables your guests to start and follow their own payment plans, once you choose to add split payment to the LayUp payment option at checkout. You may choose the amount of guests you want to include in the order, to reduce the total cost.
In the case of missing a payment, the amount will be rolled over and amortised over the remaining months left in your payment plan. To reduce the monthly instalments, make ad hoc payments on your personalised dashboard and watch as you reach closer and closer to your goal.
LayUp will send you monthly reminders via email and sms with a statement and then invoice once the billing run has occurred. You can also login to your dashboard to view and download your statements.
LayUp accepts all valid Visa and Mastercard that have been approved for online transactions. Please contact your bank and ensure e-commerce payments have been turned on and that you limit is set high enough for the payment to go through.
You always have the flexibility to cancel your payment plan at any time and receive your funds back less any cancellation fee applicable (determined by the Merchant as per their Terms and Conditions).
You will always be required to pay in full before receiving the goods or services. Once your payment plan is complete, the merchant will release the goods or service to you. Please contact [email protected] for merchant related queries and one of our expert account managers will get in touch.
Yes, it is! You would need to log in to your profile and “add card” to your already existing details. Once made the changes will be saved immediately and be updated for your next billing cycle.
LayUp is a technology-driven “lay-buy” payments company which commenced activities in 2017 after validating the concept through a closed group of merchants and customers for 24 months. Our solution is tried and tested and we ensure we have put every measure in place for security processes and safety of collecting and receiving money on behalf the merchant and yourself.
As a fully registered, alternative payment solutions company, LayUp Technologies (Pty) Ltd , we ensure that we only work vetted companies that are legally bound to honour the lay-by contract they have agreed to. LayUp will ensure all your money is returned less the non-refundable deposit in lieu of any goods or services not being honoured by a merchant.
Yes, you can! LayUp is flexible and let’s you shop your way. If you’d prefer to pay up sooner than the length of time that you or the merchant originally set, you can. Simply increase the amount of your instalment/s to complete your payment plan sooner.
