Frequently asked questions


    • All balance payments can be made via My Account. If you do not make a balance payment in advance we will attempt to auto collect the balance on the due date using the original card details.

    • You will make an initial deposit payment at the point you confirm your order. You can then make as many instalment payments as you choose to. If you have an outstanding balance at the point the final balance is due we will attempt to auto collect the balance using the original card details.

    • The two most common reasons a payment will fail are either because the card was rejected at the security stage and flagged as being potentially fraudulent, or your card did not pass our pre-authorisation stage. If your payment has failed we suggest you speak to your bank first. If there are no issues with the card please attempt the order again with a different card.
