Paying bills in installments
We may need to request further information from you in order to activate the “Pay in 4” installment feature of our platform. We follow our responsible budgeting guidelines closely and there are certain situations in which we are unable to offer this feature. This generally extends to anyone that is currently in bankruptcy, has a debt agreement, or has had recent defaults. Our system assesses suitability to make sure it is in line with the best interests of everyone using it.
We consider a number of factors as part of our assessment process to make sure you’re able to meet your repayments responsibly. Depending on your application, this may include a soft inquiry into your credit file which has no impact on your credit score, or verifying your income or bank balance securely with Plaid (just like Venmo).
Most people begin with an account balance of between $300 and $500 to start paying bills in installments. If you’re not immediately able to activate your balance for the “Pay in 4” installment feature, it may be because we need to get to know you a little better. In these situations the "Pay in 4" feature will be unlocked after you pay 3 bills upfront using “Pay in 1”, with these 3 bills having a combined value greater than $150.
