Quadpay and your credit score

Quadpay doesn’t normally report your application for a loan account to the credit bureaus, because it doesn’t make a “hard” credit check. This means that, unlike a credit card application, your credit score probably won’t go down when you apply. But it’s worth noting that Quadpay’s terms of service say that they do reserve the right to request your credit report.

These same terms of service also say that failure to meet your payment obligations may result in collection efforts, which “may involve … submitting your information to a collections agency.” So being in default with a Quadpay account could have a negative impact on your credit score.

If you always make full repayments on time, you have nothing to worry about.

Is there anything similar to Afterpay?

Another alternative to Afterpay is Laybuy. This service is available to New Zealand, Australia, and the UK, and offers installment payment for a variety of shops – both for online and in-store transactions. Unlike After, Laybuy spreads your payment into 6 installment terms which are payable every week.

Is Zip Safe?

When you sign up, Zip asks for your name, address, date of birth, a U.S. mobile number, and your payment method (either a debit or credit card). Then, when you use the app for a purchase, you get a virtual card number for one-time use. This is a secure way to complete an online transaction since the virtual number is not tied to your actual personal account information.

As far as your finances go, your installment payments are set automatically so you don’t have to remember to pay every two weeks. Just be sure you have the funds to cover your payments and that you have a backup card on file to ensure payments are made on time and your account avoids collections.

Do not save your Zip virtual card as your preferred payment method on any website. Since it’s a virtual card number unique to just one purchase, it won’t work for future transactions. 

How Do Returns Work When Using Zip?

If you need to return merchandise, work with the retailer directly to get your refund. Once it’s initiated, you’ll be reimbursed the amount you’ve paid so far to Zip, and any future installments will be canceled. If you have a remaining balance on the account, Zip will apply the refunded amount toward it.

Zip notes that Fashion Nova is one retailer that may give you a store credit for returns rather than a refund. In that case, you’ll still be responsible for paying the Zip loan.

Who is Zip good for?

We generally don’t recommend “buy-now, pay-later” apps like Zip if you can avoid them. While the service offers no-interest payments and minimal fees, it might only delay interest payments or bigger fees if you’re not able to make payments on your linked credit or debit card. It’s worth considering a personal loan or 0% APR credit card as another option, if you’re able to qualify.

Still, Zip might be a useful tool for making important purchases in an emergency. The service is simple to use and offers a spread-out payment schedule, so it’s a decent option when you’re able to make the biweekly payments but unable to pay for the whole purchase all at once.

Quadpay fees

Quadpay doesn’t charge interest on their installment plans, so you won’t incur any additional fees there. But the company does charge fees in two forms.

  1. All installment payments are subject to a $1 convenience fee.⁵
  2. Quadpay does charge fees for late payments based on the state you live in. Fees range from $5, $7, to $10 based on state law and there may be a fee cap based on their terms and conditions for your account.⁵

How do I pay Quadpay?

When you set up your Quadpay account you can link it to any U.S. credit or debit card—no overseas or pre-paid debit cards.² After you make a purchase, the application sets up a four-installment auto payment plan which will run the linked card automatically.

You have the option to pay early if you want, but you must pay the installments one at a time—running multiple charges.

If you don’t make a payment, Quadpay will charge a late fee on the next installment, but they’ll waive it if you make the payment within 10 days. To avoid this situation, the application automatically sets up SMS and email notifications to remind you to get funds into your account.⁶

You can also set up a backup card on file that the application will default to if your primary card has expired or is underfunded.

Is there a credit limit with Quadpay?

Yes, Quadpay does have a credit limit that’s reflected in the balance located at the top of the app, and they won’t necessarily approve every order.

To make a purchase, you must have at least 25% of the purchase amount of the item available on your balance—the first of the four installments. If you don’t have that amount, Quadpay won’t approve the order.

Another factor to consider is if you have multiple orders that haven’t been paid off. Obviously, Quadpay won’t let you keep ordering until you pay off some of those items, but it’s completely up to their system.

You can’t ask to increase your spending limit with Quadpay either. But if you complete multiple purchases and make the payments on time, then their system is likely to increase your balance over time—especially more than a new customer.

FAQs

Does Quadpay run a credit check?

How can you fund your Quadpay account?

When you sign up for your Quadpay account, you’ll need to link your credit or debit card. Quadpay will automatically debit your connected account at the agreed dates for your loan repayments.

Can you earn rewards points using Quadpay?

Quadpay doesn’t offer a rewards program. However, you can still earn points on your linked credit card. Link your credit card to your Quadpay account, and earn all the rewards you would with your card issuer.

Why does Quadpay reject some applications?

Quadpay assesses customers at the time of checkout. Therefore, if you don’t provide accurate information, the system may reject your application. You may also have problems if you were late with your last payment, or if this new purchase would make you exceed your credit limit.

What happens if you never use your Quadpay account?

What happens if I miss a payment?

If you’re late with your Quadpay installment, or you don’t pay the balance in full, Quadpay charges you a late fee, and the outstanding balance and fee add to your next payment amount. Quadpay won’t charge you more than three late fees. However, paying late may jeopardize your chances of getting your next Quadpay loan. Your late payment could also be reported to a credit bureau, negatively impacting your credit score.

How do I close my Quadpay account?

If you want to close your Quadpay account, you can do so at any time. Make sure your balance is paid in full, and contact the support team. The service agent walks you through the process of terminating your account.
