Layaway with Easy Pay

Easy Payments Over 3 Months!

American Duchess Easy Pay is an interest free, flexible layaway plan that's designed to make our products more accessible to our customers by splitting the cost of your order into either three or six affordable chunks.

Just shop as normal in our online store, choose your products and select "Easy Pay" as the payment method. You can then choose the date on which the plan starts, and whether to make 6 bimonthly or 3 monthly payments. To wrap everything up, just enter your card details and confirm your order. There are no credit checks... no paperwork... easy!

Easy Pay is not available at Checkout if your cart's currency is set to Euros, or Pound Sterling. Simply switch the currency back to US Dollars and it will become available, your card will be charged the same amount - all transactions are made in US Dollars, your bank will automatically convert the charge to your local currency.

We will then set your order aside so it's guaranteed not to go out of stock. We automatically charge your card for the agreed number of payments, for the agreed amounts, on the agreed dates, and then dispatch your order within 2 business days of the last payment being made. Simple!

Once your package is dispatched then we treat it in the same way as any other order. You're covered by our Safe Shopping Guarantee, feel free to return it for any reason whatsoever, anytime in the 30 days after receipt for your choice of a store credit, exchange or refund.
