Why do you no longer offer accounts?

As a company we want to continue to offer the best service and improve the options for our customers. We found that our customers prefer to lay-bye instead of having an account because of the following reasons:

  • No obligations
  • You have the freedom to change your product at any time during the lay-bye process
  • There are no admin fees
  • There is no interest charged
  • You can cancel at any time with no penalties
  • You pay up to 30% less with a lay-bye than with accounts
