Afterpay vs. Oxipay

Posted by Joshua Maher on

Oxipay is the latest addition to Later Gator’s ‘Buy Now Pay Later’ options that allow customers to checkout, receive your goods immediately, and pay them off in fortnightly installments with no interest. 


Here’s how Oxipay stacks up to our most popular payment option, Afterpay.


Note: the two are actually very similar to you as the customer.


Both Afterpay and Oxipay essentially extend you a line of credit allowing you to take delivery of your products immediately.


Lator Gator and your chosen payment processor takes on board any risk, any fees associated with transactions, and all you have to do it make regular payments.


They are both simple to sign up for during the checkout process, and you can view and manage purchases and payments via the respective member account once you’ve signed up.


Both Afterpay and Oxipay require a valid credit/debit card to sign up for an account. And both processors will take regular direct debits out of your account at fortnightly intervals.


Afterpay and Oxipay debit payments each fortnight from your nominated card, and you can’t make any changes to this payment schedule. You can however, pay it off sooner if you like through the member portal.


The difference between the two is small, and it comes down to fees.


Afterpay will debit a quarter of the purchase price every fortnight. If the money isn’t in your account, you’ll be given 24 hours to make the payment before being charged a $10 fee, and a further $7 will be charged if the payment remains unpaid after 7 days.


Oxipay also debits a quarter of the purchase price every fortnight, or one eighth every week. If the money isn’t in your account at the time, you will be charged a $6 fee immediately. A further $30 will be charged if Oxipay has to take steps to collect the outstanding balance from you.
