Why wasn't I approved for Payflex?To take advantage of flexing the way you pay, you’ll need to meet Payflex's minimum requirements. If you weren’t approved for a flexible payment plan then you may have a poor credit history or no history at all.
Is Payflex really free?
Yes. Payflex offers the first truly free spending plan in South Africa. Buy now and pay later with Payflex, and it won’t cost you a cent more (if you pay on time). Default fees apply if you miss a payment.
What is required to make my first purchase using Payflex?
If it’s your first-ever time using Payflex, you'll just need to provide a few details (you know, the usual name, mobile number, email address and South African ID number) then Payflex will do a quick automatic credit and ID assessment to see that you are who you say you are and all that! The system does this instantly and if all is good, and you agree to the payment schedule, you can make your first payment with any Debit, Cheque or Credit card (all Visa, Mastercard or American Express Cards are accepted).
Can I change my payment date?
Sadly, not really as your Payflex scheduled payment dates are automatically set. So please, please, please, before you confirm your Payflex order, make sure you check that the scheduled two-weekly payment dates suit your budget and bank account. You are however welcome to make an early payment at any time. Simply log in to your Payflex account (https://portal.payflex.co.za/login), head to the “My Payments” page, go to “Make the next PartPayment early” button and click the green “Pay” button.
I want to return my product, what do I do?
If the refund is accepted (in accordance with our terms and conditions), then we'll instruct Payflex to refund your payments, no problem.
