Paying with finance

Simply choose your desired private plate and select the Deko Finance option on the checkout payment page. You’ll then be taken to the application form, which takes just a few minutes to complete.

Search our vast amount of private plates available with finance and click the ‘Pay Monthly’ button to start.

Use of your personal data

In order to process your application, you will be asked to provide information about your personal, employment and financial situation. Deko will need to share your personal data with the lenders so that they can make a decision about whether to offer you finance. The lenders will perform a search with one or more Credit Reference Agencies to conduct their creditworthiness and affordability assessment to help them make their decision. Therefore, if the first lender is not able to lend to you, then the second search of your credit file will be undertaken by Deko’s alternative lender.

You can find out more about how Deko uses and protect your personal data in their Privacy Policy: Deko Privacy Policy

Your lender will provide you with a copy of their Privacy Policy with your loan documents.

Deko’s registered office address is: 100 Liverpool Street, London, EC2M 2AT

Finance decision

Your application will be assessed based on eligibility, credit history and affordability and Deko will let you know the outcome in just a few seconds. It’s important to know that when applying for finance a hard credit check is made. Only you can see that a ‘soft’ search has been made on your credit file, but a ‘hard’ credit check will be visible to others viewing your credit file, for example if you apply for credit in the future, the lender will see that a credit check was made on your credit file.

If you don’t meet the first lender’s criteria, then Deko will pass your application to another lender from their panel who may be able to lend to you.

Once approved, Deko will let you know who the lender is and how to contact them. You then just need to digitally sign your credit agreement, pay your deposit and wait for your order to arrive.

In a few cases, your application may be referred to a lender for manual assessment and you’ll be notified by email of the credit decision within 24 hours. If you’re not approved for finance it could be for a variety of reasons and the lender will be able to give you more information.

Repaying the loan

Your first direct debit payment will be taken approximately 30 days after you receive your purchase. This will show on your statement as a payment to your lender. You have the right to repay all or part of the loan early at any time.

The exact date of your first repayment will be set out in your credit agreement.


There is a 14-day cooling off period where you can withdraw from the credit agreement after signing your documents. If you wish to do this please contact us (your retailer) directly. We can cancel the application on your behalf. There is no need to contact Deko or your lender.

A payment plan does not affect our standard Terms & Conditions for Buyers. Just contact us and we’ll cancel your application and the lender will refund your deposit and let you know of any outstanding balance if applicable.

For any other questions, please contact us.
