What if I make a return on a purchase made through Installments with Shop Pay?
- After your refund is processed, the refund amount will appear on your payment schedule within 3-10 business days, and your balance will be updated.
- If your refund is less than your total purchase balance, then it might not lower your next payment. Instead, you can expect fewer payments, a smaller final payment, or both.
- If your refund is more than your purchase balance, then the difference is returned to your original payment method within 3-10 business days.
- If your order is made with monthly payments, then the paid interest isn't refunded. Interest is the cost of borrowing, and isn't refundable.
Pre-Orders, Backordered Items, and/or Special Orders:
If you finance your purchase with Affirm, your first payment is due approximately two weeks after your purchase is finalized. Please note that due to extended delivery times (for pre-ordered items, special order items, backordered items, and/or shipping and processing delays, etc), your loan payment(s) may be due before you receive your purchase.
