    buy now pay later question

    Am confused about exactly how buy now pay later options work on multiple purchases. For example, if I bought something a few month ago that what buy now pay 6 months later I understand that as long as I pay the full amount over that time then it's interest free.

    What happens though if I add another item at a later date which has its own plan say for 12 months?

    Let's say item a was £300 and item b bought later on was £600. Do I now still have to pay only 300 by the end of the 6 month period and the remaining 600 by the 12 mknth period or what?

    Do payments always come off the oldest items first I guess is what I'm asking?

    Each agreement you take out is independent to the others so you can have as many as you want. Credit cards do have the same principle but you must pay the first transaction off within the interest free period otherwise the offer stops on that transaction and all others meaning you pay the standard Apr on everything

    It'll differ from place to place. Have a read of the credit agreement as it usually lists the order things are paid off e.g. here is very.co.uk

If you make a payment that is more than the full balance for all items due for payment (including new purchases) and also have Buy Now Pay Later (BNPL) items which are not yet due for payment, we will apply the excess towards those BNPL items, starting with the item which will next become due.

    Grumpy_womble is correct, each deal is independent as they are fixed term agreements i.e. one for 6 months and the other for 12 months.

    What BeerDrinker describes is a credit card agreement (revolving credit) which is different.
