Quick Guide To Pay Monthly Shopping Catalogues
Shopping using a pay monthly credit catalogue allows you to pay for your goods over several weeks or months, rather than paying for them upfront. This type of shopping is also commonly known as:
-Buy now & pay later
-Spread the cost credit accounts
-Buying on finance
Why should I use them?
- You can replace essentials such as a broken washing machine or the kids’ shoes when they need them, without worrying about finding the money immediately.
- Spread the cost of major occasions such as Christmas or a special birthday so that you can treat your family without going over budget.
- You can take advantage of price-cut promotions to get what you need for less.
How does it work?
To start the process off, you need to apply for credit account when you checkout. This is a straight-forward procedure and you will usually get a decision instantly or sometime within a few hours. Your credit offer will contain information on:
- Your credit limit
- The APR (rate of interest)
- Terms and conditions
It’s helpful to print this information off so that you can refer to it at a later date.
Will I be credit checked?
Yes. All companies providing credit facilities have a legal obligation to check your identity (that you are who you say you are) and your credit rating before providing you finance. Remember that you have to be over 18 and a UK resident to apply.
I have bad credit history – do I stand a chance of being accepted?
This will depend on your personal circumstances and credit history. Each company has a different credit checking criteria and some are easier to be approved than others. Click to view the recommended catalogues for bad credit.
What happens if my application is declined?
- Don’t worry if you do get declined. Often this is due to factors which are simple to address.
- Check you are on the electoral register
- Get a copy of your credit file and see if it’s accurate.
- See if you have any CCJs (County Court Judgments relating to non-payment). They stay on your credit record for six years and greatly reduce your credit rating.
- Check for defaults (non-payment) on your credit record. Like CCJ’s, they will stay in place for six years, markedly reducing your chances of obtaining further credit.
- Ensure you are keeping up payments on existing credit such as a mobile phone contract or credit card.
- Previous debts – Have you had previous debts with the catalogue company you are applying for and perhaps inadvertently tried to sign up with another catalogue in the same group?
- Is there a history of fraud on your credit file (Such as CIFA warnings)? If so, then you are unlikely to get credit
- No credit – If you haven’t had credit before, this can be a hard one, because there is no history of how you manage credit. Each catalogue group has its own criteria for extending credit, so if you aren’t accepted by one group (for example Littlewoods), it’s always worth applying elsewhere.
Don’t apply to several simultaneously. Spread the applications out over several months. If still unsuccessful, look at taking out credit elsewhere which, provided you repay it, can enhance your credit rating and perhaps make you a more attractive lending proposition.
How do I pay?
Each month you will receive a statement from your catalogue company which will include all of your spending and details about your credit limit and monthly repayment options.
If you maintain these monthly repayments on time, you could qualify for a credit limit increase allowing you to increase your spending and increase your credit rating too.
How much will my repayments be?
The exact amount varies from company to company, but typically the minimal monthly repayments are around 5% of the balance owed. For example, if you bought items to the value of £100, you would need to pay off £5 a month. The quicker you pay off your debt, the less you will pay in interest.
What happens if I can’t pay?
Don’t ignore the problem. Letting the non-payment build up may well increase the amount of interest you pay and can ultimately result in debt collectors becoming involved, court action and a severely damaged credit rating.
Contact the company and explain. Often they can work with you to come to some sort of arrangement for repayment over a longer period, or freeze your account so that you can’t make any more purchases, just pay back what you owe.
