JQ buy now, pay later

Travel Daily - - News -

ON­LINE pay­ment ser­vice After­pay Touch Group has an­nounced a deal with Jet­star to of­fer its buy now, pay later op­tions to pas­sen­gers.

From to­day, After­pay will be avail­able on Jet­star.com to pur­chase do­mes­tic flights as part of a pi­lot pro­gram.

It can be used for trans­ac­tions of be­tween $200 and $1,000 when booked eight weeks or more ahead of travel.

If suc­cess­ful, the sys­tem will be ex­tended to other do­mes­tic ser­vices and in­ter­na­tional flights.

The part­ner­ship is the first foray into the travel in­dus­try for After­pay, which al­lows users to “buy now, re­ceive now, pay later” with­out tak­ing a loan.

The com­pany’s head Nick Mol­nar said the agree­ment pro­vided After­pay cus­tomers with new op­por­tu­ni­ties, par­tic­u­larly in a mar­ket where mil­len­ni­als were very ac­tive.

“Mov­ing into the travel mar­ket with Jet­star is an in­cred­i­ble win for both After­pay and Jet­star cus­tomers,” Mol­nar said.

Jet­star ceo Jayne Hrdlicka said After­pay would help make trav­el­ling more achiev­able.
