0% interest-free finance available - Split your purchases over 6-12 months with interest-free finance (for orders over £350)

About Interest Free Finance


We offer our customers the ability to apply for simple finance facilities to fund a purchase from us. Once you are accepted by V12 Retail Finance you will be asked to eSign the credit agreement and once in receipt of your purchase, v12 will make your agreement live and your monthly repayments will commence for the agreed term. In short retail finance gives you the flexibility to buy what you really want now, not just what you can afford today by spreading the cost of your purchase over a repayment period that suits your budget.  



Subject to availability, the typical products we offer are

    • 3 months Interest-Free Credit (0% APR)
    • 6 months Interest-Free Credit (0% APR)
    • 9 months Interest-Free Credit (0% APR)
    • 12 months Interest-Free Credit (0% APR)

We require a minimum deposit of 10% on our Interest-Free and Interest Bearing products. This is an interest-free loan with no arrangement fees. You repay the loan amount through equal monthly payments spread over the chosen repayment period. Minimum loan of £300 applies.

    • Be at least 18 years of age
    • Have been a UK resident for 3 years or more
    • Be able to make repayments by direct debit
    • Be in regular employment* (minimum of 16 hours per week) including self-employment, or in a permanent residence with your spouse/partner who is in regular employment.

    2. We will email you the lender's application form to complete from the comfort of your own home.
    3. Once approved*, we'll deliver the goods to your home address

*Credit is subject to age and status. You must agree to the lender's Terms and Conditions and electronically sign the Credit Agreement document before we can release the goods to you. 



During the loan application process, you will be asked for your personal information such as name, 3-year address history, date of birth, email and telephone contact details and employment/income information. If you are accepted you will also need a credit or debit card registered to you at your address on the credit application so that the lender can carry out an electronic identity check.



With most applications, we expect that you will be given an acceptance or decline decision within 10-20 seconds. In some cases the lender may return the decision as ‘referred’. You will then receive an email with further instructions once the underwriters have made a decision. Underwriting hours are between 8am and 8pm, Monday to Friday (excluding Bank holidays), 9am and 6pm on Saturday, and 10am and 5pm on Sunday. If your application is referred outside of these hours then you may have to wait until the next working day for the decision. 



For finance orders made online or via mail order we are only able to deliver the goods to the address on your credit agreement (your home address). You will not be able to have the goods shipped to another address or collect the goods from us in person. 



If you wish to return the order then please refer to our returns policy. If we accept your return we will contact the lender to cancel the credit agreement. We may not be able to cancel the finance if the return falls outside of our returns period.



You will be informed of the decision if the lender declines your application, the lender is unable to share the reason for the decline with us. Applications are usually declined for reasons such as:

    • you do not meet the eligibility criteria (see above);
    • adverse credit reference agency information;
    • your credit score;
    • you are considered to be overcommitted; or
    • your existing account performance with other lenders.

The lender will give you the contact details for the credit reference agency used. They will also give you information on how to appeal the decision if you wish to discuss the matter. Please note that the lender is unable to discuss this over the telephone due to Data Protection rules. You should also note that each lender applies its own credit score to applicants so if you have recently been accepted for credit elsewhere this does not necessarily mean that appealing the decision on this basis alone will result in a change of decision.
