PB Tech’s Eric Li said joining forces with Laybuy was a natural fit for the business. “PB Tech is proudly New Zealand owned and our goal has always been to provide the best value shopping destination for all things tech. With Laybuy’s weekly payment model, our customers have a new and flexible option to spread the cost of their dream tech and IT gear over six easy interest-free payments.”

Laybuy co-founder, Gary Rohloff said he was excited at the opportunity to work with Alceon Group – one of Australia’s biggest retail groups. “Alceon is a huge win for us with such an extensive reach in Australia and in our first home of New Zealand. Online fashion, footwear and swimwear brand, SurfStitch is the first to go live with other Alceon brands planned in the first half of 2020.”
