Bluethumb Introduces Afterpay!
As if Australian art wasn’t tempting enough, it’s now never been easier to make yours! The team at Bluethumb HQ is thrilled to announce that Afterpay is officially now live on the site, is easy to apply for and costs nothing extra. “If you’re anything like me and are terrible at saving money, Afterpay is going to make buying art a worry-free, super exciting experience – like buying art should be,” says Bluethumb’s curator Sarah. “I’ve already got my eyes on a print I’ll be soon testing Afterpay with!” Ready to get started?
What is Afterpay?
Shop now, enjoy now, pay later – that’s the premise of Afterpay! Let’s say that, like Sarah, you’ve set your sights on a print at the price of $200. With Afterpay, you can buy it today and pay it off over four equal fortnightly installments, interest-free. In fact, you can do this with any piece you like the look of that’s under $1000! There’s no extra charge from Afterpay if all the repayments are made on time, meaning you’ll only ever pay the price of the artwork you’ve purchased. What’s more, there’s no long, lengthy application to get approved – Afterpay is quick and easy to get set up with.
