The Purse Affair offers a layby service which allows our customers to reserve merchandise with a required minimum 20% deposit down (Towards purchase price). Merchandise put on layby is kept by The Purse Affair until the balance is paid off in full.
A payment of every two weeks is suggested, but can be paid sooner; all layby must be paid in full to The Purse Affair within the time chosen at purchase (6 to 8 weeks). Should the payment plan be cancelled by the purchaser, the initial deposit will be forfeited.
While we can sometimes accomodate a 1-2 week extension, in general if a layby is not honoured by the end date then the layby will be forfeited without warning and item relisted. The deposit of 20% will be retained by The Purse Affair.
Simply checkout and select to pay via layaway. Deposit 20% into the nominated bank account (provided at checkout) and email us at email@example.com to confirm you have purchased the item on layaway. If you do not have an Australian bank account you will need to email us to arrange payment via Paypal friends and family.
