How does it work?

  2. New Sezzle customers will need to create a Sezzle account. Returning Sezzle customers will need to login. 
  3. Sezzle will do a soft credit check for approval of the transaction. 
  4. As little as 25% is due at the time of purchase, with the remaining amount spread out over equal installments (typically three), each two weeks apart. 
  5. Sezzle automates the remaining payments through whichever payment method is on file. 
  6. No interest of processing fees are charged to you - if you pay everything off on time, you only pay for what you ordered!

B) Too new to Sezzle- The longer you Sezzle, the better your chances of getting approved. Usually, they're less restrictive after the first six weeks.

C) Outstanding balance(s)- The amount you owe on previous orders and the number of open orders on your account both impact your changes of being approved by Sezzle. Paying off your outstanding balances can improve your chances of getting approved.

D) Order Value - Reducing the total cost of your order, or splitting it into two or three smaller transactions, can improve your chances of getting approved.
