So Beau Baby FAQs



What is the difference between Laybuy and Layby?

At So Beau Baby we offer both traditional Layby and the Laybuy service.

Layby – this is our in-house layby whereby you can make repayments at intervals of your choosing (up to 3 months) and your order is dispatched once full payment has been made. Layby is available to NZ and Australian customers. (see below in our FAQ’s for more details)

Laybuy – Laybuy lets you receive online purchase now and spread the total cost over 6 weekly automatic payments interest-free (see below in our FAQ’s for more details).

How does layby with So Beau Baby work?

We are pleased to be able to offer Layby to both NZ and Australian customers on orders over $75 NZD.

A layby sale is one where you pay by instalments and the goods are held by us until you pay off the balance. With layby sales, you don’t own the goods until you’ve made the final payment.

If you wish to set-up layby, simply add the products you wish to purchase to your cart and select the ‘Layby’ payment option at checkout. We will then contact you (normally within 24 hours) to provide you with the payment details.

We offer very flexible Layby terms and just require a deposit of 20% or more to be paid within 3 business days of the Layby being set-up. You then have up to 3 months to make the remaining payments. You can choose how much and how often you wish to pay within this 3 month period.

What is Laybuy and how does it work?

We have partnered with popular payment provider Laybuy so that customers can pay for their order with interest free weekly installments – Available to NZ customers only

Q. How do I sign up?
A. Just continue to checkout and select Laybuy as your payment option or visit to create your account.

Q. Who can use Laybuy?
A. Any NZ resident over 18 with a current debit or credit card.

Q. How is my limit approved?
A. Your limit is assigned through our instant credit check upon sign up. If you don’t have a credit score, Laybuy will assign you with $120. No extra information about you is required!

Q. How do I return my order?
A. Simply return your items to the Retailer as normal. The Retailer will process the refund through the Laybuy platform and we will credit the funds to your nominated debit or credit card and adjust or cancel your payment schedule as necessary.

Q. Is there anything else I should know?
A late fee of $10 will be applied to your account 24 hours after a missed payment. You can also spend more than your assigned limit, the excess will be added to your first payment.

Q. What if the item I want to purchase is more expensive than my Laybuy credit limit?
A. You can shop and spend more than your limit if you have a sufficient balance on your debit or credit card to complete the purchase.
However, if you exceed your limit this will change the way in which you will be required to make payments to us as the excess must be paid at the time of your first installment.
For example, if you have a limit of $120 and want to purchase an item for $200, your designated debit or credit card will be charged $80 on the date of purchase. That is, the $80 “limit excess” and your payments for the next 5 weeks will be $24 per week.
