How Lay-by Really Works

How Lay-by Really Works

by Russells 10 January 2020

It is not always possible to buy the beautiful furniture that you want in cash, luckily there is a lay-by payment option that you can use to pay for the furniture piece that you want over a period of time. This option reduces the risk of paying more than you should. We at Russells care about our customers and making sure that they purchase the furniture pieces that they fell in love with a priority!

What is Lay-by?

Lay-by is a payment option that allows you to purchase goods that you may not be able to purchase in cash, by having the store that you have purchased it from hold it for you while you pay it off in an agreed time frame. This payment option is a signed agreement between you and the store that you are purchasing from. It ensures that there is no interest charged and if you are not able to complete the purchase or decide that you do not want the goods anymore, you will be refunded and charged 1% cancellation fee. Once the full amount for the goods have been paid, you will receive the beautiful piece of furniture that you fell in love with. The agreement that you will have with the store that you are purchasing from, should mention the amount that will be paid and the time frame that the amount will be paid (e.g. R1000 = R200 x 5 Months). A store may request that you pay a deposit when entering a lay-by agreement, and you must always read the terms and conditions first when entering into an agreement and you must be 18 to enter into a lay-by agreement.
