Frequently Asked Questions

This Agreement was last modified on 18th february 2016

What areas does Easy Payment Options cover in Australia?

  • Our online store covers almost anywhere in Australia
  • If you don’t find what you need online or you may live in a remote area and want to support your local retailer or supplier of goods or service, simply apply online, name the company involved with all their details and we will follow through for you

How Does this work?

As with any finance / rental option, you will need to meet some criteria but essentially, as long as you can comfortably afford the payments and you are a decent person, this will be approved!

You have various options to select the goods or services you need:

  1. Choose from our online product range. Once you have selected the items you need, continue with the application process. We will be in contact very shortly after and all going well, you should be approved with a few hours
  2. If the items are not in our online store OR you want goods that are not on our website from another retailer, simply click on the Apply Here and select Application on our website and follow through with the online application. This allows you to name a retailer or supplier of your choice. As long as you enter their details, we will make contact with them and we can arrange for this to happen for you

It really is that simple – We work hard to make this happen for you!

Payment Options?

  • If you need new household items but can’t afford to buy them or have the money to pay for them right now.
  • We offer affordable rental options via Rental Contracts (Consumer Leases) with a maximum 2 year term. Payment options for rental products can be deducted from Centrepay or as Direct Debit Payments
  • If you use a Consumer Lease then at the end of this term, there is no right or obligation to purchase the items BUT you can make an offer to buy. We will consider all offers very seriously, no matter what amount you offer.

What type of things can I choose?

  • Depending on the Payment Option, we can supply almost anything.
  • All our Payment Options are “For Purpose“ – In other words, we are not money lenders and there has to be a specific need for the goods before we will accept a client.
  • If you choose the Payment Option using Centrepay then this is a Rental Contract with specific terms and conditions applicable and Centrepay states that these goods can only be essential household items, many of which are listed below:
  • Examples of types of goods available using your Centrepay Benefits could include such things as; any Furniture, TVs, Mobile Phones, White Goods, Bedding, Lounge Suites, Dining Suites, Computers and lots more.
  • Always ask if you need something that is not listed here. We always try to help.
  • If you choose Direct Debit payments then the range of items we can supply becomes broader.

Can I choose items from Ebay, Gumtree or Facebook Market Place?

Yes you can choose items from any of these options
