Buy now pay later with bad credit

If you have had bad credit, credit default, CCJ, poor credit score or any other problems with your credit, then you should know that there are still finance options and loans available to you.
The buy now pay later loan for people with bad credit can be a good way for you to shop through the catalogues for things that you always wanted. With such programs, you can buy anything listed on the catalogue and pay for it later on. This makes it easy for people with adverse credit to get funds they need in order to get the things they want.

There are plenty of stores in UK which provide these funds fast guaranteed to shoppers.

If you are in need of quick cash, then there are quite a lot of lenders on the internet these days which provide funds sameday if you have an emergency.

An online lender like this will be able to finance for your shopping and you can make weekly payments or monthly payments on your payday later towards the loans. All of these loans are unsecured so you would not have to keep your home as collateral and would not need a guarantor.

The only thing that you would need is a proof that you are not unemployed. You will also need a bank account and a debit card if you want to opt for a direct debit option for the loan. However, you should know that these are small loans which will answer your immediate finance requirements and they are usually for a short term.

You should check that there are no extra fees charged on the advance given to you.

You would not have to worry about your Experian or Equifax scores since the lending in these loans is done on lenient terms and no credit checks are conducted on the loans. However, you will only have to be careful that you pay the loan back on time if you want to avoid making any further damage to your credit score and any other interest charges and fees.

There are thousands of people around the world who cannot afford the high price tag on a brand new laptop. Some of these personal computers cost as much as an old used car.

However, the buy now pay later laptop PC shops that sell products on the internet have allowed consumers to buy most of the products easier and without a credit check.

A very high percentage of the population have weighed up the pros and cons of buying used computers, instead of purchasing a brand new PC.

Some people cannot afford a brand new desktop-computer and end up buying a second-hand PC. STOP!
You can buy a brand new PC now and pay later .

Thanks for this imformative post, I have already purchashed a few items which I thought I would never be able to afford and have set up an agreement with the store to pay in a year.

I was talking to firend of mine who works for a bank and she advised me that even if you have a bad credit history the bank will still look to approve you for a loan or credit card. Don’t give up hope of finding a lender or a store which will offer credit even if you have a bad credit rating.

Insightful overview as I am currently having problems with bad credit and CCJ and want to know how to resolve my issues

Jerry Armstrong February 8, 2011 at 5:30 pm

Decent article, it has given me a good overview of how to recover from CCJs

Good comment EnviroJane, it really does help when you can spread the payments of an expensive and fairly essential item over a period of a few months.

Can anyone tell me the name of any buy now pay later stores except Brighthouse. I have been looking around the internet and brighthouse do a weekly payment schedule but there does not seem to be a very good choice excpet this company. There are store card places like debenhams but I want somewhere where you can pay weekly. Thanks Daz

Does anyone know whether buy now pay later 0% finance still exists? I used to buy goods such as sofas, dining room tables and washer dryers from the co-op with 0% finance but they don’t seem to do it anymore. I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks Jenny, Gloucester

What actually happens with all buy now pay later with bad credit finance is as follows for anyone who is interested. The main point is the difference between a credit check and a status check. If you have bad credit it is highly probable that you will be rejected for buy now pay later finance. The reason is the finance company that the store uses will do a check with a credit agency like experian. This takes time.

If you have bad credit you want to buy from somewhere that will only undertake a status check. For example they will check with your employer you are who you say you are on the application form.

err, thanks for sharing your wisdom Mike_Sharp. What you are saying is obvious to anyone with at least half a brain. Just for the record, I have had bad credit for about two years now following a CCJ and I am only too aware that any decent lender will carry out a credit check. It’s only the payday/scumbag lenders that don’t carry out a credit check and instead carry out a status check.

In Asia right now, especially Japan, it is so hard to get any type of financing. You guys are so lucky in the West.

Dan R James July 12, 2011 at 4:50 pm

Try Brighthouse for a buy now pay later scheme. They are the market leaders for this type of deal and are highly recommended.

Claire September 20, 2011 at 9:43 am

Generally, if you are in a full time job and can prove you are not unemployed you are not going to get turned down for buy now pay later finance

Karen November 7, 2011 at 10:49 am

Its amazing how often the names of Exerian or Equifax appear nowadays. Before the credit crisis no one really heard much about these credit referencing agencies. Sure there were people that were bankrupts who would be certain to fail a credit check but generally banks and lenders were reasonably flexible. Its funny how times have changed. Loans, buy now pay later with bad credit schemes, its all very difficult.

Maggi November 22, 2011 at 1:08 pm

Its amazing that companies are still offering buy now pay later finance. This is how we got ourselves into trouble in the first place with the recession and companies giving out too much free credit.

I’ve always done it and my parents have always done it. I really do not see a problem with buy now pay later schemes. Not everyone has the money to go out and spend £2000 on a new sofa set. That is an awful lot of money to have to put down in one go.

My parents were your average middle class family. Both of them were civil servants and not fantastically well paid. They were very well organizec and would regularly by cars and other necessary consumer products on buy now pay later schemes.
Sure, they ended up paying more (unless an interest free deal) but at the end of the day they were able to organize their personal finances in manageable amounts and always made sure they would pay back on time.

Furniture and household goods are classic items that people always seem to buy on credit. It makes sense. If you intend to stay in your house for many years then even if you have to buy something on credit then surely the cost of paying interest on the loan will more than be worth it if the value of your property goes up in the long term. You can then be forgiven for thinking that it was well eorth it.
