What are the fees and interest charges?

Payflex does not charge fees or interest. You will pay the same order value split into four payments. 

What if I miss a Payflex payment?

If you miss a scheduled payment, a default fee of R65.00 (incl. VAT) will be added to your account. A further R65.00 (incl. VAT) will be charged for every week that the payment remains unpaid. Total Payflex default fees are capped at a total of R195.00 (incl. VAT) or a maximum of 50% of the order value, whichever is lower.

Do I qualify for Payflex?

To be eligible for Payflex you need to be 18 years or older with a South African ID number and Visa or Mastercard (debit, cheque and credit cards are all good). You will also need a good credit history.

How many Payflex orders can I have at the same time?

If it’s your first time using Payflex, you’ll only be allowed one order until your second scheduled payment has been paid. After that, you can place multiple orders, as long as you stay below your total spend limit.

How do I make instalment payments on an Payflex spend plan?

Payflex will automatically deduct scheduled instalments from the same card you used to make your first payment. If you want to pay your balance sooner, you can log in to your Payflex account to make early payments. 


When will my item be delivered if I pay with Payflex?

Payflex orders are prepared for delivery once you make your first payment at checkout. Orders will be delivered within My Silky Hair's standard delivery timeframes.



Why is my payment not going through?

If your payment transaction has failed the most probable cause is a bank decline. Our Payment gateway, acts as a middleman between My Silky Hair and your bank to process online transactions. The ultimate authorisation for a transaction comes from your bank.

Some common reasons include, insufficient funds, incorrect card details, exceeding daily limits, etc. Some banks automatically disable debit cards for online payments, so you may need to contact your bank to enquire further.
