How To: Set Up Payment Installments through Afterpay and Clearpay


Afterpay provides your customers in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States a way to split purchases over four installments. Your customer only pays the first installment at purchase time. You are immediately paid in full and Afterpay collects the remaining installments from your customer over time. 


Stripe accounts in the following countries can accept Afterpay payments with local currency settlement:

United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, Ireland, New Zeland


NOTE: In order for Payment Installments to work on your website, you have to use Stripe as your Merchant.
You can accept payments from customers in the same country that you registered your Stripe account in. Payments must also match the local currency of the country. Review the default transaction limits for the country.

Step 5. Scroll down to the section labeled 'Payment Installments - Stripe With Afterpay / Clearpay'. Make sure that the Available toggle is set to Yes.

NOTE: If you do not see this section, it means you have not added your Publishable key yet. Go back to Step 4 and complete adding your Stripe Publishable Key. Once saved, Payment Installments - Stripe With Afterpay / Clearpay' section we appear.




Step 6. Lastly, make sure to click the blue Save button at the bottom right
