Accessible Self-Care: Introducing Afterpay


Health is a universal, human right — a necessity — not a privilege. But oftentimes, we’re left to fend for ourselves, bound by financial status, race, gender, and sexual orientation. Sexual, reproductive, and mental health is even less accessible, if not by options for care, the science to back it up. 

At Momotaro Apotheca, we’re constantly working on making our products more accessible to everyone, everywhere. Between insurance policy changes, difficulties scheduling appointments, and a sweeping rise in stress levels, it’s difficult to find the care you need and deserve. And we know how frustrating and uncomfortable it is when our bodies are waiting for relief, and any number of appointments, prescriptions, or trips to the drugstore have nothing to show other than spirits (and bank accounts) a little less full. 

We’re pleased to announce that we now offer AfterPay so that you can get the support you need when you need it, and pay on a schedule that works for you. Now, keep in mind this isn’t a free-for-all spending spree (although we’ve been guilty of that once in a while, too). We sincerely want to help you get the relief you need, while offering flexibility around your finances. 

The best health care plan is a self-care plan that involves taking preventative measures for our health in every capacity.  For that, we encourage conscientious spending. That means taking inventory of what you have, what you
need, and what you want. If you’re running low on something you frequently use, by all means, top up on your regular items. If you’ve been considering purchasing something new for a while and feel it will truly add true value to your life, it might be worth investing in. There’s a world of a difference between retail therapy and items that can be therapeutic for your physical and mental wellbeing. Our rule of thumb is to make sure you’re not spending money just to spend money. Or that you’re not spending money you never would have spent in the first place just to get a discount. Keep reading for a quick guide to using AfterPay, and shop our solutions

What is Afterpay?

Afterpay is a “buy now, pay later” instant lender that divides your total purchase amount into four interest-free installments due every two weeks. There is zero interest, and no additional fees when you pay on time, making this an accessible payment option when you’re in need of relief.

  • 4 payments in interest-free installments [due every two weeks]
  • Zero interest, and no additional fees when you pay on time. 
  • Instant approval decision.



Is Afterpay safe?

Afterpay is a safe and secure alternative payment option. We understand how important personal and financial security is, so we take great care to ensure that your personal information is protected. Afterpay is a PCI DSS Level 1 certified compliant Service Provider organization, which basically means it has passed a comprehensive set of requirements created by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council to enhance cardholder data security and to ensure the safe handling and storage of sensitive credit card information and data. It's the highest level of security in the payment industry. 



What if I can't make an Afterpay payment?

Hey, it happens. Afterpay lets you reschedule up to 3 payment dates per year. 



How does Afterpay keep customers from overspending?

Well, technically, it doesn’t. It’s up to you to be conscientious about balancing your budget with your needs and desires. We encourage conscious consumerism, and you should only spend what you can afford to pay back. 

AfterPay takes time to get to know your spending habits and budget before allowing you to spend more. Afterpay automatically sets a sensible initial spending limit that gradually increases over time, assessing every order request using their real-time “Repayment Capability Check” to determine spending capacity and your ability to repay on time. 



How do I check out with Afterpay?

It’s simple! Once you’re done adding what you need to your cart, head to the cart → Enter your information → Choose shipping → Choose Afterpay as your payment method. 

Once you hit “Complete Order,” you’ll be redirected to Afterpay’s site to complete your purchase securely. That’s it! Once your order is confirmed, we’ll get started on packing your product/s so you can feel relief soon(er). 


If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to chat with us! Someone on our team will get back to you within 24 hours.
