Summary of how the Payment Plan works
In summary, the Payment Plan works like this:
- You must open an Account with us. We will verify your identity, ask you some questions and consider whether an INKPAY Payment Plan will be suitable for you at this time.
- Your purchase must be from a tattoo studio who is registered with us. The studio will send us details of the purchase that you want to pay for by instalments.
- If we decide to offer you a Payment Plan for the purchase, we will send you your payment schedule immediately via email, which shows you what payments you will make to us, and when they will be due. We may send you this by email, in our mobile app, in your Account online, or by other means. You can accept this offer by clicking the Accept button within the proposal
- Instalment 1: You will pay us the first instalment immediately at the time of purchase. This will be 40% of the purchase price.
- If you pay us Instalment 1, we will send you a notification that we have entered into the Payment Plan with you. We may send you this by email, in our mobile app, in your Account online, or by other means. You can view your progress in making payments in your Account.
- On the day of the purchase, or the next day, we will pay the purchase price to the Studio, less the fees we charge the Studio for making our buy now pay later service available to their customers.
- You will pay us the remainder purchase price in 3 instalments.
- Instalment 2: You will pay 20% of the purchase price, on the same weekday 2 weeks after the date of the purchase.
- Instalment 3: You will pay 20% of the purchase price, on the same weekday 4 weeks after the date of the purchase.
- Instalment 4: You will pay 20% of the purchase price, on the same weekday 6 weeks after the purchase.
- You can make payments before the due dates without occurring additional fees or charges, otherwise we will automatically take the instalments from your nominated debit or credit card, or bank account, on the due dates.
- If an automatic payment fails on the due date, we will charge you a late fee of $10. You can be charged up to 3 late fees which total $30. This is 1 late fee of $10 for each of the late payments of Instalment 2, Instalment 3 and Instalment 4.
- If an automatic payment fails, we will attempt to take that payment 2 (two) days later. If the second payment attempt fails, we will add the payment due, plus any additional fines or late fees, to the next scheduled payment INKPAY reserves the right to collect, or attempt to collect, late payments and any additional fees owing to us, at any time after an agreed or scheduled payment date has been missed.
