H&M will send you a payment reminder letter requesting payment immediately. If you have still failed to pay the overdue amounts H&M will send you a ”Notice of Default”. We will charge you £7.00 for each payment reminder letter and a further £12.00 for any Notice of Default. H&M reserves the right to charge an annual penalty interest of 17.9 % on the capital sum after due date if you choose "Pay next month" and an annual penalty interest of 17.9 % on the capital sum if you choose to pay in instalments. We will apply payments against the current debt in the following order: costs, interest and then capital sum. You always have a right to pay all or part of your instalment debt prior to a scheduled payment date.
Please note that H&M reserves the right to send payment requests to your e-mail address.
Please note that we do not accept cash or cheques. If you wish to pay by cash/cheque please pay at your bank or a Barclays bank using your payment slip. H&M reserves the right to charge £15 for costs arising for any cash/cheques received.
