Certegy Ezi-Pay interest-free payments

Pay zero interest on purchases made with an Ezi-Pay revolving credit account that 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 installments.

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.

      Hi Latoya!

      Thanks for getting in touch with finder.

      Sorry to hear about your situation at the moment. Using Ezi-Pay, you only need to place an initial deposit to a store and the remaining balance will be paid every fortnightly at 0% interest for a maximum of 24 months. To know if your pre-approved, apply online or directly at the store when you shop.

      While you pay 0% on your purchase, there are fees involved to use Ezi-Pay as stated above. Please take note of the documentation and eligibility criteria as well.

      Hope this helps!

      Hi David,

      Thanks for leaving a question on finder.

      There is no option to pay by cash to Certegy Ezi-Pay. This is a continuing credit payment plan that lets you purchase goods or services today, by paying an initial deposit, with the remaining balance being conveniently direct debited fortnightly. There is a simple application and best of all there is No Interest Ever. Please note that you will be charged an establishment fee of between $35 and $90 for setting up your account. You pay this fee off over the repayment period.
