How Do I Purchase an Item using Layaway?

Layaway is currently available from select Preferred Sellers on Reverb. If there’s an item you really want to get, but don’t have the funds readily available, this is a great option!

After inquiring about Layaway with the seller, you’ll want to set the terms of the agreement. There are currently three different options: 20% down, 30 days; 50% down, 30 days; or 50% down, 60 days. Once the terms have been set, the seller will send you an Offer that requires your acceptance. From there, you can proceed to checkout. You can also make as many payments as you’d like over the agreed upon timeframe, so long as the order is paid in full by the final day. Once it’s paid, the seller will ship the item to you!
