Kmart is getting Afterpay. Here’s when you’ll see it at the checkout
As of mid-September, Kmart Australia will officially offer Afterpay to customers shopping online.
According to numerous sources, shoppers will see Afterpay at their Kmart checkouts by 18 September – online checkouts that is. There is no word as to whether Kmart will be offering Afterpay to customers in-store.
Afterpay will allegedly be available for online orders totalling $70 or more to a maximum value of $1000.
While both Kmart and Afterpay have yet to release any official statement or information about the truth behind these claims, many shoppers have written about the news on social media.
Some users on Facebook have alleged that Kmart staff have been informed that Afterpay is indeed coming to online checkouts. Many users in Afterpay fans groups, such as Afterpay Obsession and We Love Afterpay, allege that they have called Kmart to confirm and have been told by representatives of the Kmart head office that Afterpay will indeed arrive at Kmart online this month.
Afterpay is a modern-day lay-by style service that allows you to pay for online or in-store purchases in instalments. Afterpay is currently available to use at top Australian stores like David Jones, Target and THE ICONIC.
Afterpay has recently broken into the US and UK markets and is now available to US customers shopping at Urban Outfitters and is available to Australian customers shopping at the UK site Boohoo.
