Love this app! It works just as expected and allows buyers to have a convenient way to pay for something on Layaway.
Stuff We Need
I love this app. Lay-bys have been a big part of my life and the Aussie culture for for the working class. It's brilliant that Lay-Buy is now offered through Paypal. I'll be encouraging this for my target customers, Aussie battlers, and I'm sure it will be a reason they come back and buy off me again.
I'll also add the fantastic service I received from Warrin, the Chief Executive in Queensland, when I thought I had it installed but actually didn't. He emailed and ended up going in and double checking everything. Amazing support.
There aren't a lot of apps I would come back three times for, but Lay-Buys has been a favorite of ours for a long time now (see below). Our customers love it, it increases our average order size, and it costs us NOTHING, ever. I can't recommend any app more, so I've come back to let readers know that we've been using it since 2016 and find it crucial to our success and growth. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain by installing this one for your customers! Edited 1/25/18: We've been using this app for 18 months now, and it has increased both our sales and our cart size very noticeably. We currently have over 24 orders on the Lay Buys program, which shows how much customers appreciate it! Many of these orders are from repeat customers who were very happy using it the first time and have come back for more collectibles, using it again to help budget those larger purchases. I see a couple reviews stating that the app slows down page load, but it does not slow down loading on our site, so perhaps they're mistaken about the cause of their slow load? We've had no issue with the app's operation, and it remains one of our most valuable add-ons to our Shopify site in terms of increased revenue. We've contacted Lay Buys support a few times with questions or to request tweaks to the app and Warrin always responds promptly with the help or feature we've requested. Truly, we couldn't be happier! And all this comes at zero cost to us, and very little cost to the customer? It's a huge win all around! Original review was in 2016:
I waited to write this review until we saw a completed transaction using it. Our first use was a $900+ purchase, and it went smoothly for both the customer and for us. We both received notifications every step of the way, and she received a notice a couple days in advance of the monthly payment date so she knew when it would be coming out. That's perfect. When the final payment was made, she got a thank-you, and we got notice that the order was completed and can now be fulfilled. With no charge to the merchant (how refreshing!) and a minimal charge to the customer - less than one percent, this app has jumped up my favorite list quickly! Eleda Towle

Works really well. Our products have a reasonably high price point for an e commerce store and we wanted to remove as many barriers to purchase as possible. We set the parameters pretty tight so we only give one time frame option and they have to put down a 50% deposit. But all in all since we installed it about two weeks ago we've had 10 Lay Buy sales that we probably wouldn't have had. A bit tricky to install and but Warrin the developer was super helpful and very quick at responding. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
A fantastic app to offer Lay-by for your customers online. Warrin is incredible with helping you get set up and resolve any initial issues but the app works perfectly. The major downsides are the limited ability for visual customisation (for those who want a completely consistent 'look and feel') and the inability to set a minimum spend to use lay-buy at checkout. That said it's still a great solution and I believe the best one available. Thanks again to Warrin!
Total Mailcalls For You
I've had at least 3 sales this month already I probably wouldn't have gotten without this system.
As my product is imported it's quite expensive comparably, although unavailable in the EU the price is often a reason people don't purchase.
Now with 2 smaller payments some people seem more interested.
Customer Support is excellent, considering they're Australia-based I've had assistance at 11pm their time! Which amazed me.
