    Oh, I did not know that 13-15-% in the bank. But hell no, I did not pay for 39.9%. It was only around 15.9%. Maybe, it depends on the amount of the product and how long you pay for it.

    The credit agreement will state exactly what the APR% is.  Are you sure that 15.9% is not the flat interest rate which would give a much higher APR ?

    All of the comments were really helpful. Appreciate it. Just an update, I availed a TV, and pay it in fortnite. Friendly customer service, and I had to ask, one time, that there was a problem with my account, they just extended it, with no further explanations. Interests are reasonable.
    Do you work for these shockers by any chance?

    From their website
    Representative Example: Cost of Goods £1200, Deposit £50, Amount of Credit £1,150, Annual Fixed Interest Rate 34.04%, Monthly Payment £51.75, Term 36 months, Total Payable £1913.00, Representative 39.9% APR.

    The APR will be the same across the board

    Actually its worse, I clicked on apply here

    I am not aware of that when I applied. I just simply called them and applied for it. So, maybe it's a case-to-case basis.

    This is why we at the start of this thread tried to dissuade you

    Places like these are akin to going to a loan shark, you dont understand what an APR is, you just see the repayment a week figure

    No its never a case by case basis. Thats the rate. It up to the consumer to learn what an APR means and work out the costs

    Oh dear. That gushing sound is your money being flushed down the toilet. 
    I’d go for second hand if I’m not able to pay for anything up front.
    Try Facebook marketplace. I’ve just bought a slide and swing set for £30 and a full set of “better call Saul “ dvds for £25.
