One of the great benefits of using Sezzle is our ability to evaluate customer limits and potential approvals with every purchase attempt. Our automatic system reviews how long you've been a Sezzle shopper, the information you provided at sign up (the soft credit check), any order history with Sezzle, among a few other factors.
Because of our unique approval process, including the fact that we don't have fixed limits, we're able to provide our shoppers with a completely free service. This approval process is entirely automated and is not something we are able to override.
Here are some additional options to get an order approved:
Join Sezzle Up!
- Once you have completely paid off an order and you are in the U.S. you should be able to sign up for an upgraded account with Sezzle Up!
- Signing up with Sezzle Up will give you a limit boost, access to exclusive in-app merchants, and the ability to see your Sezzle limit.
- Joining Sezzle Up is easy. You should see instructions on how to join Sezzle Up on your Sezzle dashboard, including the requirement of having one order paid off.
- This will give you access to your limit along with a boost, access to exclusive in-app merchants, and the possibility to build your credit with Sezzle!
Lower the amount of your order
- Start small!
- First-time shoppers are often approved for purchases around $50-$200 initially.
- As you use Sezzle and successfully pay off orders on time, we're usually able to approve larger orders.
Verify your account was created correctly
- Make sure all of your account information is accurate - for example, entering the wrong birth date or misspelling your name can cause you to be declined for orders. Learn more about updating account information here.
Double-check your payment method
- If you don't have a payment method tied to your account, or we aren't able to charge it (because it's expired or there aren't enough funds available), you won't be able to place any new orders. Learn more about adding payment methods here.
Check for failed payments, or pay off outstanding installments
- If you have a failed payment on your account, you won't be able to place new orders until it's paid off. Learn more about failed payments here.
- If you have existing unpaid orders, they may also prevent you from being able to place a new order. Paying off existing orders entirely may allow you to place a new order. Learn more about paying off installments early here.
