Need Help Paying Your Materials Fee?

We’ve got you covered with HUMM, AFTERPAY AND ZIPPAY


How humm works.

At humm, we do Buy Now Pay Later a little differently. Instead of just focusing on the little joys in life, we want to allow our customers to fund whatever they need, both big and little.
This means we’ve split our product in two:
Little things for all of your purchases up to $2,000,
and Big things for those purchases over $2,000 and all the way up to $30,000
They each have their own set of rules for approval, but no matter what, we never charge interest – ever.


Split your purchase into 4 instalments

You’ll pay your first instalment at the time of purchase, and the remainder every fortnight.

No fees when you pay on time

With interest-free instalments, the only fees are for late payments. You can find your payment schedule in the Afterpay app and we’ll send you regular reminders.

Enjoy instant approval decision

You’ll know you’ve been approved within seconds. Orders ship as they would with any other form of payment, as quickly as you choose.


  • Flexible repayments from $40/month, choose weekly, fortnightly or monthly
  • $6 monthly fee, which you won’t pay if your statement balance is zero
  • Pay no interest ever with Zip Pay. Get 3 months interest free with Zip Money
