What is Afterpay?

Afterpay is a buy now pay later service that allows you to purchase a product and then pay it off in four equal installments that are due in two-week intervals.

Provided that you make the payments on time, the service is completely interest-free, making it a more affordable way to shop.

The only downside is that retailers will limit you to $1,500 per transaction when you shop with Afterpay, so bear this in mind before making a purchase.
