If a customer misses an instalment in the future, this is 100% on us to recover from them, but in the vast majority of cases, our customers pay their instalments on time.

Generally not. The only exception to this may be if you are using a low-cost Shopify account which charges additional fees on all payment providers. We have no control over these fees.

The Meat Box
"Increasing key metrics is important to us, as it is for any ecommerce merchant, and average order value is something we wanted to improve. Zip helped us do that."
"Zip is quick and credit can be given instantly. People seem happy that this service is available and I think at times they spend more than what they initially intended to."
"The best benefit is that it is extremely easy to upsell customers home care and add on services - people are spending more willingly as they are excited to be able to afford to keep their hair looking amazing for the full 6 weeks. The upsell opportunity by far makes it worth it for such a small fee (just a little more than a regular credit card payment.) "
