In a move that has got Kmart superfans VERY excited, the chain has announced they will soon offer customers the ability to shop using Afterpay.

If you’re not familiar with this amazing way to shop, Afterpay lets you buy online and then have your goods delivered to your door without paying ANYTHING!

In what kind of works out like a reverse lay-by, you simply pay the balance with four installments every two weeks – all with no interest or fees.

A Kmart spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia:

‘We will be making a formal announcement about our new partnership early next week, but can confirm that customers will soon have the option to use Afterpay for online purchases’  

‘At Kmart, we’re on a mission to make everyday living brighter for our customers, by making products more accessible for everyone.’

Shoppers have been asking Kmart to bring in the new paying option for sometime, and celebrated upon hearing the news.


Some people have posted online that they have even been told about the upcoming introduction of Afterpay from Kmart staff.

One shopper shared the exciting news: ‘I’ve called head office and this has been confirmed by them,’ another wrote. Another shopper posted: ‘They’ve confirmed to it everyone calling. It’s 100 per cent true, Afterpay is coming to Kmart online.’

We can’t wait to find out when it will officially begin, and coming into Christmas, this will be a big win for shoppers!
