We have a currency converter on the Smitten Kitten website but the default prices on our website are in Australian Dollars (AUD). If you make a purchase using a credit card your account will possibly be charged in AUD. If you are paying from overseas please check with your card issuer as additional charges may be applied.
The name that will appear on your statement will be Smitten Kitten.
We have partnered with popular payment provider Laybuy* so that customers can pay for their orders with interest-free weekly instalments *Available to NZ customers only.
Q. How do I sign up?
A. Just continue to checkout and select Laybuy as your payment option or visit laybuy.com/consumer to create your account.
Q. Who can use Laybuy?
A. Any NZ resident over 18 with a current debit or credit card.
Q. How is my limit approved?
A. Your limit is assigned through our instant credit check upon sign up. If you don’t have a credit score, Laybuy will assign you with $120. No extra information about you is required!
Q. How do I return my order?
A. Simply return your items to the Retailer as normal. The Retailer will process the return through the Lay-by platform and we will credit the funds to your nominated debit or credit card and adjust or cancel your payment schedule as necessary.
Q. Is there anything else I should know?
A late fee of $10 will be applied to your account 24 hours after a missed payment. You can also spend more than your assigned limit, the excess will be added to your first payment.
Q. What if the item I want to purchase is more expensive than my Laybuy credit limit?
A. You can shop and spend more than your limit if you have a sufficient balance on your debit or credit card to complete the purchase.
However, if you exceed your limit this will change the way in which you will be required to make payments to us as the excess must be paid at the time of your first instalment.
For example, if you have a limit of $120 and want to purchase an item for $200, your designated debit or credit card will be charged $80 on the date of purchase. That is, the $80 “limit excess” and your payments for the next 5 weeks will be $24 per week.
