The ability to ‘buy now, pay later’ from payment providers such as Afterpay has transformed the way we shop, allowing us to treat ourselves on the day and pay for our purchases over a period of time. Whether it’s a new dress or a new smart TV, it’s a convenient way to get what you want, when you want it.
While you may already be using Afterpay for your online or in-store shopping, did you know that you can also use it to pay for your dental treatments? That’s right - National Dental Care Group now offers Afterpay as a payment method in our practices*, meaning you can receive treatment on the day and enjoy the convenience of paying the amount back in instalments.
Here’s all you need to know about using Afterpay to treat now, pay later.
What is Afterpay?
Afterpay is a digital payment system that allows you to make flexible, interest-free payments online and in-store.
How does Afterpay work for National Dental Care practices?
In the case of our dental practices, Afterpay allows you to receive dental treatment on the day of your visit and split the cost of the treatment into four equal instalments over a period of eight weeks.
Here’s an overview of how you can benefit from using Afterpay for your dental treatment:
● Get treated immediately, pay off the cost over time: Using Afterpay means you don’t have to delay your dental treatments - you can receive treatment on the same day.
● Split the cost of your treatment into four instalments: You’ll pay the first instalment on the same day as your treatment, then the next three on a fortnightly basis.
● Pay nothing extra when you pay on time: You won’t pay any interest if you make your payments on the due date - the only fees are for late payments.
● Get approved instantly: Getting set up with Afterpay is quick and simple - you’ll know you’ve been approved within seconds.
