Through this partnership, you can secure online lay buys for a wide range of products, and pay off your order using an OTT Voucher. But did you know that you can also save towards your favourite products on the LAYAWAY platform?

In this article, we show you how to save for a rainy day with OTT Voucher and LAYAWAY and make 2023 your best year yet. 


Save for all of your favourite products on the LAYAWAY platform

LAYAWAY is a new way to secure lay buys online, giving you the chance to plan ahead, save on your terms and build a financial profile. This type of financial planning was typically only possible for those with a bank account and a credit score – but this is now available to cash customers using OTT Voucher. 


How to save on LAYAWAY

When you open an account on the LAYAWAY platform, you can immediately set up your own savings pocket. There is no application required, and anyone can open an account. 

The LAYAWAY savings pocket is easily buildable, and you can add any amount to it, at any time, using OTT Voucher. The LAYAWAY pocket can also be added to by friends and family, allowing everybody to save towards that big splurge or exciting family trip you’ve been dreaming of. 


Why should I use the LAYAWAY pocket?

The LAYAWAY pocket is a great way to start the new year on a solid financial footing. January is often considered the longest month, especially after all the holiday spending, and it can be hard to budget for your favourite goods or the next big family event. 

When you open a LAYAWAY pocket, you can create a savings goal that suits your unique needs, and you can use it whenever you want. Also, with a LAYAWAY account, you’ll get the best possible deal on any of your purchases. 

By working towards your saving goals now, you can put away an amount every month and use it later in the year when you will need it most. 

Hoping to visit your grandmother on her birthday later this year? Why not spoil her with a new kitchen appliance, couch or  cell phone? 

Did you get the exciting news that there’s a baby on the way? Now you can start planning for all the beautiful baby clothes you could dream of.
