Unexpected or emergency vet bills can catch us by surprise... Thankfully The Pines Vet now offers a number of payment options to help ease the financial stress of vet visits.
For loans under $1000, Zip Pay allows you to pay your bill back over time in weekly, fortnightly or monthly payments. Zip Pay is interest-free, and doesn't require you to pay a deposit. They have monthly account fees as low as $7.95/month, BUT pay your statement closing balance by the due date and they'll waive the fee! It is as easy as downloading the app and creating an account - just one click and your tailored payment plan is sorted!
Zip Money is the sister of Zip Pay, and is for amounts over $1000+. Zip Money also allows you to pay your bill back over time in weekly, fortnightly or monthly payments. Zip Money has 3 months interest-free, and doesn't require you to pay a deposit. There is an establishment fee of $0-$99, and they share the same low monthly account fees of $7.95/month. It is as easy as downloading the app and creating an account - just one click and your tailored payment plan is sorted!
VetPay is a payment plan that lets you pay for your pets treatment over time. You pay your vet an initial deposit, and we direct debit the balance in fortnightly repayments from your nominated bank account. Vetpay charge you an annual fee of $49 and apply an interest rate (APR 18.4%) to the remaining amount after your deposit. These fees and charges are added to your account and included in the fortnightly repayment. Once you have established an account, additional treatment can be added to your account as long as your fortnightly payments have approved and you are within your credit limit.
You can calculate your repayment by using their Repayment Calculator.
