Our mission is simple. To offer shoppers the simplest, easiest way to buy now and pay later, at 0% interest. Back in 2018, we realised that South Africans needed a new way to pay — a payment solution (a revolution) that enables online shoppers to spread their payments over 6-weeks at no additional cost (no interest. no fees). In just a few years, we’ve changed the way people pay, with thousands of shoppers enjoying interest-free shopping at over 650 Payflex stores. The payment revolution is well and truly underway.
