Whiteflash Payment options
Before we look at Whiteflash’s financing options, it’s worth nothing that Whiteflash accepts payments by:
- All major credit cards
- including Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and ApplePay
- Pay Pal
- Wire transfer
- If buying from a country outside of America and Canada, often bank wire is the only way you’ll be able to make a purchase. Unless you’re from the UK, Australia, New Zealand, and Singapore, you may be able to use a credit card from these countries.
- You will receive a 3% discount on the portion of your order paid by wire transfer
- Once you select the bank wire option, contact your bank to wire the money, and once Whiteflash has received the payment, your order will be processed. This may take a few days to go through depending on your bank.
- Something to note is that there might be a fee from your bank for the wire
- Whiteflash financing
- Whiteflash offers a ‘buy now, pay later’ option through Affirm Financing.
- There is also an option called Flex Plan. This has a 90-day interest free payment period – similar to layaway.
Why we recommend Whiteflash:
Whiteflash is an excellent choice if you’re looking for the very highest quality round brilliant or Princess cut diamond.
There are very few jewelers on- or offline who can match them for their range of top quality stones, and the excellent information they provide ensures you can make a truly informed decision and get the very best stone available.
Recent additions of 'A Cut Above' lab-grown diamonds cements them as focusing on only offering the highest quality diamonds possible.
- Highest quality diamonds with the A Cut Above range
- Good selection of designer ring settings - you don't just need to buy their own brand
- Offers a personal touch to their service - they're not just another online retailer
