Limepay is a buy now, pay later platform that’s fully integrated with the merchant’s payment platform. This means that when you checkout, you don’t have to deal with pesky third-party redirects, and can still make a secure, encrypted transaction. Limepay doesn’t charge interest, and their repayment schedule is flexible. Depending on the merchant, your payments could be divided into 4, 6 or 8 instalments. Your first payment will have to be made upfront, and late fees will apply.

How does Limepay work?
Limepay is a buy now, pay later (BNPL) platform with a difference. The happy marriage between a standard BNPL platform and a payment gateway, Limepay offers an enhanced experience for both customers and merchants. This is because it integrates with merchant checkouts on the merchant site, so customers aren't redirected to a third-party marketplace upon payment – such as with other BNPL platforms – in order to pay for their goods.
Benefits for merchants
Merchants benefit from this in terms of a higher retainment of customer data and relationships, as well as retaining their own branding. And, because customers aren't siphoned off to a third party, they are also not subject to advertisements from potential competitors. Also, if payment is overdue, Limepay handles the follow-up.
Merchants can also customise BNPL instalments as per their brand and industry. For example, high street clothing retailers may opt for customers to divide payments into 4 instalments, while high end fashion brands and furniture retailers might increase these to 6 or 8, in light of the more expensive nature of their products.
