Afterpay Watches: What is Afterpay, and how does it work?


Imagine this: you’ve found the watch of your dreams. It’s bold yet tasteful, practical yet elegant, and just the right size. And best of all, it’s in stock - but not for long. The kicker? Your empty bank account. You couldn’t possibly afford that once-in-a-lifetime watch right now - or can you?    

At Watch Frontier, we understand that it can be tricky to budget for a spanking new watch. That’s why we’re proud to offer Afterpay watches. With Afterpay, you can get the perfect watch now and pay for it later. We stock a range of high-end, affordable watches to suit any style and budget. We’ve sourced and selected only the best watch brands on the market - such as Rado, Pulsar and Seiko - so you can feel confident that you’ll find what you’re looking for on our website. 

So what exactly is Afterpay, and how does it work? Read on to find out.

What is Afterpay?

Founded in 2015 in Sydney, Afterpay is a ‘buy now, pay later’ (BNPL) digital payment platform offered to online shoppers. In a nutshell, Afterpay allows you to buy your watch now and pay for it in four easy, interest-free payments over six weeks - all while you wear your dazzling new timepiece out in the town.  

Use Afterpay to buy anything you need - from clothes to makeup, pharmaceuticals, and even flights.  And with more than 8.5 million active users worldwide and over $7.3 billion in sales, it’s clear that Afterpay is here to stay.

How does Afterpay work?

Afterpay acts as the middleman between you, the customer, and retailers. The way it works? Afterpay pays the seller upfront for their goods, and then you pay back Afterpay. Simple. 

All you need to do is make four fortnightly payments over six weeks. All payments are of equal value and are interest-free. However, there are late fees for those who don’t stick to the payment plan. 

And unlike other payment platforms, Afterpay doesn’t require a visit to the bank or an in-depth ID check. All you need is an Afterpay account. But while you don’t need a credit check to sign up for a free account, there are some requirements:

  • You must be 18 years old or older and be the authorised holder of a debit or credit card
  • Your watch must be over $35
  • Your first payment is always 25% of the total cost of your watch
