How do I integrate Sezzle into my website?
Once your account has been approved, you’ll be sent an email with instructions to log in and get set up. If you lose that email or if you get stuck during the setup process, you can always log in to your account and select "Setup Checklist” which will walk you through how to add Sezzle to your E-commerce platform, add the Sezzle price breakdown widget, etc.
How does the Sezzle price breakdown widget work? How does it look on product pages?
The Sezzle widget breaks down the product price into installments and is one of the easiest and quickest ways to experience the immediate benefit of Sezzle!
By displaying the low upfront cost to shoppers, you can enjoy significant benefits like:
- Increasing sales by up to 50%
- Boosting average order values by up to 30%
- Improving the likelihood of checkout by 33%
How do I link my bank account?
Once your website is set up to begin receiving orders, you will need to add a bank account to your merchant account to begin receiving payouts. To add a bank account, please follow the steps outlined in this help article: How do I set up a bank account to receive funds?
When do I get paid?
We transfer the funds from orders to your Sezzle account when orders are placed. The date those funds are sent to your bank account depends on your specific application – the most common settlement period is 3 business days. You can always clearly track the dates your settlements will occur within your dashboard on the "Settlements" tab.
Does the shopper pay me or pay Sezzle?
When a shopper attempts an order, our system reviews a number of factors as part of our approvals process. Once the shopper’s order is approved, they pay Sezzle the down payment (usually 25%) and Sezzle pays you, the merchant, for the entire order less your merchant rate.
This allows Sezzle to assume all risk and manage repayment from the customer for the duration of their payment plan (usually 6 weeks).

What happens if shoppers don’t complete their Sezzle payments?
Shoppers are always allowed one free reschedule per order if needed and potentially more for a small fee. To ensure responsible spending, if shoppers fall behind on their payments, they will be prohibited from placing new orders. If they become delinquent, they are subject to having their account restricted and potentially sent to collections. This does not impact your payouts as Sezzle has already paid you in full upon processing the order.
