Payments
Layaway payments are due on the same date each month, but early payments can be made. You may pay all or part of your outstanding balance at any time. You must pay at least the minimum monthly payment due by the payment date. Any payments exceeding the minimum monthly payment may be applied towards the subsequent month’s outstanding balance.


Late Payments
It is the sole responsibility of the customer to keep track of any and all payment due dates. As a courtesy, Gemcitygems offers a seven-day grace period for late minimum monthly payments. After this seven-day grace period, if you have not contacted us and gotten approval for a later payment date, your payment will be considered missed and your layaway will be forfeited.


Forfeited Layaway
Upon forfeit of a layaway, any and all items within the layaway order will be returned to stock. If the layaway is cancelled by the buyer or forfeited, a 20% restocking fee will be applied or deducted from your refund due to listing fees, relisting fees, and lost potential sales. The restocking fee is 20% off the total purchase price of the layaway order.


Resized Items

Modifications to Layaway Orders
If you should wish to modify your original layaway order in any way, including, but not limited to, removing an item, adding an item, or picking up an item before the final payment due date, you are required to enter a new Layaway Agreement which will reflect those changes.
