Afterpay now in-store across James Pascoe Group
October 2022: Afterpay is now available in-store at all 201 James Pascoe Group retailers across the country, bringing together New Zealand’s favourite BNPL provider with New Zealand’s favourite retail shopping destinations; Farmers, Whitcoulls, Pascoes, Stevens, Goldmark and Stewart Dawsons.
Customers can now use Afterpay to purchase the things they want and need and split the cost of their purchase across four, interest-free, fortnightly instalments. Availability of Afterpay online is expected in the near future.
Katrina Konstas, EVP, Country Manager at Afterpay said, “We couldn’t be more excited to bring Afterpay to James Pascoe Group. Giving Kiwi’s more options at check-out when shopping in-store across some of the nation’s favourite retail storefronts is a big win for consumer choice in New Zealand”.
“Shoppers are now able to walk into their local Farmers store, refresh their homewares, restock their beauty products, buy the latest fashion and shop for the latest kids toys – splitting the costs across four instalments – making budgeting ahead of the festive season that much easier.”
To checkout with Afterpay in-store, customers will need to install the Afterpay App, and add the Afterpay Card to their digital wallet. More details on how to add the Afterpay Card to your digital wallet can be found here.
