Andertons Instant Online Finance

Am I eligible for finance?

The contents of your application will be assessed and you will receive an instant approval or refusal of credit. In exceptional cases, your order will be held for manual assessment and you can expect to be notified by email of the credit decision within a few working hours.

All loans are subject to status and you must be at least 18 years old and a permanent resident in the UK (excluding the Channel Islands and other British territories). Customers from outside the UK cannot apply for finance from Andertons Music Co.

Please note the minimum order value to be eligible for finance is £300. Unfortunately we cannot split finance orders into multiple deliveries. When paying by finance, we can only deliver your order to the card billing address. We cannot make any exceptions to this rule.

What is the best finance deal I can get on this product?

On every product page you'll see a dropdown with our best finance offers for that product. Select an option to see the monthly repayment amount. Please note that these options just give an indication of the finance deals available. You make your final decision on which finance package you would like at the checkout stage of our website.

If you have multiple items in your basket, you will only be offered the finance options for the most expensive product in your basket.

How do I use instant finance?

It's simple! Just add the products you want to your basket and click the "Checkout" button. Go through the checkout process and choose the "V12 Retail Finance" instant finance button as your method of payment. Now choose which finance term you'd like to apply for, and change your deposit if you wish.

At the end of the checkout you'll be taken to the V12 Finance web site. This is where your finance application is processed. Assuming your application is accepted you'll be able to place your deposit and confirm your order right there. There are no paper forms to sign! If your finance application is accepted and you pay the deposit, your order will come through to Andertons and we'll send you the goods. Get approval before 2pm and we'll send your order out the same working day (stock permitting) for next working day delivery!

N.B. As the last step of the deposit process you will be taken to your bank's website to verify the password you set for using your credit or debit card online.

If your card is not registered in either the Verified by Visa or Mastercard Secure password schemes, you will not be able to place your deposit online. You can register your card to the schemes online with Mastercard or Visa. Alternatively, call us on 01483 456777.

Please note: we cannot offer a "collect in store" option for online finance purchases. Purchases made online using instant finance will be delivered to you via our courier service.

How do repayments work?

Monthly repayments will be taken by direct debit. Your finance agreement starts when you receive your goods. You don't start repaying your loan until a month after you have received your order.

Cooling Off Period

You have 14 days from the receipt of your order to change your mind about the purchase. If you wish to keep the goods but cancel the finance, all you have to do is contact Andertons and pay for the order via an alternative means (i.e. a credit card). Andertons will then cancel your credit agreement and V12 will return your deposit. If you don't wish to keep the goods, then you must return your order to Andertons in the same condition that you received it, at which point Andertons will cancel the agreement and V12 will return your deposit.
