HOW IT WORKS

AFFORDABLE: Our calculator allows you to select the down payment you can afford to layby today and the amount of weeks you need to pay off the product.

SECURITY: All Payments are processed within PayPal’s secure environment.

CONVENIENCE: Payments are automatically set up between you and the seller with no intervention by either party, unless a payment is missed.  If you wish to finalise your layby earlier, please contact us via  our store email -  admin@sylvanianspecialtystore.com.au to finalise payment.
