Certegy Ezi-Pay interest-free payments

With an Ezi-Pay revolving credit account spend zero interest on purchases made and it stays active for up to 24 months.

Certegy Ezi-Pay payment plans allow you to make purchases by paying an initial deposit and then repaying the balance in fortnightly installments. Besides fees for managing the account, you pay zero interest and you can use the account for a maximum of 24 months.

If you’d prefer to apply for credit before you shop, online pre-approval is available for up to $5,000 and valid for a period of 60 days. Certegy Ezi-Pay is available at thousands of businesses and merchants across Australia.

How does Ezi-Pay work?

Certegy Ezi-Pay offers shoppers payment plans that work like revolving credit accounts. You can either apply when you’re shopping or get pre-approval online, following which you pay an initial deposit for your purchase and then pay off the rest of the amount in instalments.

Your credit increases as you pay off the purchase and you can use the revolving credit for up to 24 months. You can make multiple purchases with your credit, but you’ll be charged a fee of $22 for every additional purchase. If you apply for pre-approval, you must use the credit within 60 days to avoid having to reapply.

Consumer accounts are managed online and through the Ezi-Pay smartphone app. If you’d like to settle your balance early or close your account, you can do so without being charged a penalty fee.

Features of shopping with Ezi-Pay

If you’d like to use an Ezi-Pay payment plan, here are some of its main features.

  • Zero interest. Customers pay no interest for the duration of the repayment period.
  • Additional purchases. After you’ve made your first purchase and deposit, you can carry on shopping with your available credit. Note: a fee of $22 applies for additional purchases.
  • Wide network. Ezi-Pay is accepted by a wide network of businesses and merchants. Click on “Search for stores” to find shops that use Ezi-Pay.
  • Online pre-approval. You can apply for pre-approval online before you go shopping. Pre-approval is available for up to $5,000 for a period of 60 days. If you don’t use the credit within those 60 days, you’ll have to reapply for another account.
  • Accessibility. You can manage your Ezi-Pay account online or with the smartphone app. All fees and purchases can be viewed through your personal account.
  • Pensioners welcome. Ezi-Pay accounts are available to Aged and Veteran pensioners with valid pension cards.

How much will it cost?

While you won’t pay interest on your repayments, the following fees still apply:

  • Establishment fee. You will be charged an establishment of between $35 and $90 for setting up your account. You pay this fee off over the repayment period.
  • Fees for additional purchases. While you can use your credit for more than one purchase, you will be charged a fee of $22 for each additional purchases.
  • Monthly fee. A monthly account-keeping fee of $3.50 will be debited from your account as long as it stays open.
  • Payment fee. A processing fee of $2.95 is charged with each payment.
  • Late payment fees. Certain charges and fees are levied for late payments or if Certegy Ezi-Pay takes action against you to recover payments.

    Does Certegy do personal loans? I’m an existing client.

      JeniSeptember 28, 2019Finder

      Hi Chris,

      Thank you for getting in touch with Finder.

      No. As of this writing Certegy Ezi-Pay which is now humm, is a Buy-Now-Pay-Later service that does not offer loans.

      I hope this helps.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!

      Hi Francine,

      Thanks for getting in touch!

      Certegi Ezi-Pay interest-free payments don’t offer small car loans. If you are looking for car loans, you may refer to our comparison table that compares the features and benefits of each car loan provider such as minimum loan rate, interest, loan term, fees. You can find an estimated amount of your monthly repayment when you use the calculator on top of the table. This way it will be easier for you to see which provider fits you best. Click the ‘Go to site’ button to be redirected to the official website of the provider to get a quote or start your application. If you need further help, a quick guide on how to compare car loans is also stated on the page.

      As a friendly reminder, carefully review the eligibility criteria of the loan before applying to increase your chances of approval. Read up on the terms and conditions and product disclosure statement and contact the bank should you need any clarifications about the policy.

      Hope this helps and feel free to reach back out for further assistance.
