Clearpay Finance Limited began operations in 2019 as the UK’s version of AfterPay. What it does can be likened to a sort of credit system where users can shop online, checkout, and receive the goods but pay in installments. In the case of ClearPay, users pay in four (4) installments due every two weeks and deducted from debit/credit cards or bank accounts.
AfterPay, Clearpay’s parent company, is quite popular in Australia and New zealand where it has gained a following and client base, especially among young people. Launching ClearPay is a move by AfterPay to spread its services across Europe. ClearPay is based in London.
ClearPay benefits from the reputation of Afterpay, this parent company which has over 19m active customers worldwide. The reason for its popularity isn’t far-fetched. It offers express checkout by eliminating the need for filling lengthy information, powers seamless borderless payments in local currencies and insures itself with an AI-powered transaction audit that safeguards the platform.
