Buy new sneakers (or whatever), take them home – if you can afford 3rd of price
PayJustNow is disrupting lay-bys with an approach that is decidedly consumer-friendly.
“You see that pair of shoes for R1200,” writes consumer journalist Wendy Knowler.
“You pay R400, you take the shoes, and then next month and the month after that you pay R400.”
PayJustNow charges no interest if you pay on time.
You can shop for 660 brands including ones such as Cape Union Mart, which joined recently.
Shoppers are limited to buying one item if it is their first time.
