Have more questions?

1 How will customers know where to find my business?

There are two great ways to share your business with Afterpay, firstly we suggest updating your website with the Afterpay Cross Border Trade banner, to let international shoppers know that can shop with you.

Secondly, upload your images onto Afterpay’s Shop Directory here, this is the most powerful way for our millions of customers to find you in each region you ship to.

2 How do you determine what a customer pays?

The Foreign Exchange conversion happens on the customer side of the transaction in their local currency. The customer is provided with the breakdown of the payment plan into 4 instalments through their local Afterpay entity account. This is done transparently at the time of purchase (unlike debit and credit cards)

3 Are there additional site or integration requirements?

It’s not required for you to trade internationally with Afterpay. There is no integration or development work required for you to start cross border trade if you’re eligible. Simply have a shipping partner and update your overseas address restrictions on your website and you’re good to go. We will convert the currency on our side and present that to your customer so they have peace of mind when shopping.

4 What are the additional charges to me?

No set-up fees, transaction fees or foreign exchange commissions are applied to the exchange rate prior to performing the conversion. A small incremental cross border transaction fee will apply as set out in our agreement with you.

5 When does my business get paid?

Afterpay Australia pays you the full amount of the product in your local currency in line with your existing agreement. You will be able to see which transactions were settled each day (if any) by checking within your settlement report on the Afterpay Merchant Portal.

6 How is the exchange rate determined?

The exchange rate will change regularly to reflect the currency fluctuations in the foreign exchange market. Our local Afterpay entity uses a retail exchange rate for converting what the retailer charges for the goods into what the customer would pay in their local currency.

7 How do Returns work?

The same way they do for a domestic transaction. The Foreign Exchange and customer repayament risk is managed on the customer side through our local Afterpay entity. You refund the consumer in your local currency and the local Afterpay entity returns funds to the consumer in their local currency at the rate set during the transaction.

Clearpay is part of the Afterpay global family and provides buy now, pay later services in the United Kingdom. Customers will see a reference to Clearpay when checking out in the UK as part of the purchase flow. You, as the merchant, continue to only have a relationship with Afterpay Australia.
