AfterPay, How does it work?

The customer

AfterPay is an online payment method that allows the customer to pay a transaction after receiving the purchase. The customer only pays for the articles retained. When the process for returns are taking too long to verify, the collection period can be paused for 2 or 4 weeks by placing it on hold. This can only be done via [email protected] or +31 207230230.

  • When a customer’s transaction is not accepted by AfterPay, only the customer is able to retrieve the reason of rejection at AfterPay due to privacy compliance rules.

  • When an AfterPay transaction is marked with the status uncleared, AfterPay will authorize or decline the transaction.

When a transaction has been accepted, the risk of the merchant is secured as AfterPay has taken it fully. The customer must fulfill the payment to AfterPay within 14 days after the invoice date, unless a different term has been agreed within writing.

Shipped status

When receiving a transaction with AfterPay as payment method, it is important to take the following steps.

When agreed with the received transaction (by actually sending the goods), you can change the order status from completed to shipped. More importantly, this allows AfterPay to start billing the customer. AfterPay will guarantee the payout of the transaction.

If you do not change the order status to shipped, the order will eventually expire.

  • The shipped status is therefore important for invoicing the customer and the payout of the transaction on your MultiSafepay balance.

You can adjust the order status in the original transaction in your MultiSafepay Control via change order status or in some cases in your ecommerce platform.

Payout AfterPay transaction
