In partnership with Etika

We’re pleased to offer our customers in the UK the chance to spread the cost of their purchase with up to 12 months Interest Free Finance.

On orders of £262.50 and above, you can apply for Interest Free Finance at Checkout and choose between 3, 6, 9 or 12 month periods to pay off the cost, with a minimum deposit of 5%.

The online application process is simple and takes around 5 minutes to complete, with a decision often being made about 30 seconds after completion.

For example:

You'd like to buy an Art Deco Ring for £2,000.00
You pay a 5% deposit of £100.00
You receive the ring the next working day before 1pm

Followed by 11 monthly Interest Free (0% APR) payments of £172.73
Starting on the 1st day of the month after next
Spread over 12 months

In order to safeguard against fraudulent applications, we regret that we're able only to deliver goods to the home address of the applicant.

Credit scoring is the process used by financial services companies to evaluate the credit risk of new applicants.  This technique will be applied to your application for online finance. Credit scoring works by awarding points for each answer given on the application form such as age, income and occupation, together with information obtained from credit reference agencies.  This information allows us to produce consistent decisions, ensuring all our applicants are treated fairly.

The credit scoring process does not discriminate on the grounds of sex, race, religion or disability.

In addition to credit scoring, we also take into account confirmation of your identity, validation of certain application details, existing commitments and information held at the credit reference agencies. Though we are unable to provide you with a main reason for decline of your application, it is usually based on one, or a combination of the following:

  • Your credit score (please note that every finance company will score you differently)
  • Adverse credit reference agency information
  • You are considered to be overcommitted
  • You are aged under 18
  • Your existing account performance with other lenders

Yes. We acknowledge that your circumstances change and just because we have refused a previous application, it does not mean that we'll automatically turn down a further request. We do suggest however, that you leave at least 6 months between applications.

Some of the information is public information, for example electoral roll, County Court Judgements and bankruptcies. Other lenders may also file information about accounts you hold with them for instance this could include your payment history and outstanding balance on these accounts. Any requests for credit, where a credit reference search has been undertaken, will also be filed, although the result of the request is not recorded.
