How do I place my order?

Last updated September 27, 2022

Zilla enables you to split payments in flexible instalments at checkout. Want to buy an item from a merchant that accepts Zilla? It’s as easy as ABC.

Here’s how it works

When you choose to  pay with Zilla , it can work out in two ways:

When the merchant has a website

If you are making a purchase from a merchant with a website or an e-commerce store, simply add items to your cart per usual and choose Zilla at checkout. You will be directed to the Zilla payment gateway to complete the payment.

When the merchant has a social commerce store (Instagram, Twitter, etc)

In this case, simply DM the merchant and inform them that you want to pay with Zilla. They will share a payment link with you. The link takes you to the Zilla payment gateway.

Choosing a Preferred Payment plan

When you use Zilla as a payment option, you can choose from four payment plans:

Pay in 4: Pay 25% upfront and spread the rest over six weeks (one payment every two weeks).

Pay in 3: Make a 50% down payment, then split the rest into two instalments over two months (25% every 30 days).

Pay in 2: Pay at least 25% upfront and pay the rest in 30 days.

Pay once: Pay in full and get 2% discount instantly.

As soon as you pay the first instalment, your payment will be completed and your order will be processed by the merchant.
