Spread the cost with Pay in 3

Everyone who has epilepsy experiences it differently. With good management, a lot of people with epilepsy can live a normal life.

Others, though, have symptoms that are more difficult to manage. Those symptoms can hold a person back from doing the work they love, and at times lead to unemployment. In these situations, buying a device from us might seem overwhelming or even impossible.

We don’t want anything to hold people back from taking control of their epilepsy. We are committed to making epilepsy alarms accessible to everyone and, as a result, we work with some NHS organisations and charities that provide them at no cost or at low cost.

Sometimes it can take a while for funding applications to be processed, and not everyone is eligible. In addition to VAT exemption, we’re happy to add another way to help you stay in control of your budget and make buying an alarm a lot easier. Read on to learn how you can now buy an epilepsy alarm for yourself, a loved one or a client. 

Buy now. Pay later

If you’re reading this blog post, you’ve likely taken a look at some of the products for sale on our website. You might have found something that’s just right for you or somebody you know! But you’re not ready to hand over £1,000, £599 or even £249 in one go.

We understand, and this is exactly why we’ve partnered with PayPal to offer you the chance to spread the cost with Pay in 3, their  Buy Now, Pay Later product.

With PayPal’s Pay in 3, you can split the cost of an epilepsy alarm into 3 interest-free payments. You no longer have to pay the full amount up front. With this option in place, larger payments are much more manageable! 

What is PayPal?

PayPal is a very secure method of sending payments online. It is a platform used by millions of people and big brands such as Netflix, Spotify, Nike and more! With PayPal, you can pay, send and accept money in seconds. It’s safe and really easy to use.

Through PayPal’s Buyer Protection program, buyers can be assured of receiving the product they bought without any complications. 

PayPal’s Pay in 3 

Pay in 3 is a service offered by PayPal which allows you to split the payment of a purchase into 3 monthly instalments. This service is interest-free and there are no hidden fees. 

For example; If you buy the Embrace2 Epilepsy Sensor today using Pay in 3, your purchase of £249 will be broken into three payments. Meaning you would only pay £83 today. Once you’ve completed the first payment, PayPal does the rest of the work for you. The next two payments are taken automatically, and you’ll be notified by SMS or email before each one.
