Very is an online store that used to be littlewoods direct catalogue however it is now solely online.
There is a massive selection of clothing for both men and women as well as electrical products, furniture, jewellery in fact pretty much anything you could want for either yourself or your home you will probably find with very.co.uk.
How it works is pretty simple you can either choose what you want and pay for it with your debit or credit card there and then or else you can opt to open a customer account. With a customer account they will set you a limit that you can spend and then you can choose to pay for your goods up to the value of your account monthly. This is such a good way of funding those large purchases that you cannot afford to pay for outright. There are a few different ways of paying monthly with your account and you can choose the time you want to pay it over for example you can choose to take it over a long period of time but this will usually incur interest or you can choose to pay slightly more and pay it off quicker which will means that the payments you make will be interest free. They are quite flexible on the payment arrangements you can make with different options depending on what you can afford every month.
Each month you will receive a statement telling you how much your minimum payment is and when its due by and you can pay it in the bank or post office, by telephone or online.
As iv said the selection they have is huge and good quality branded products but in browsing iv noticed that quite a lot of things are cheaper elsewhere such as amazon or on the high street although they often have sales and sometimes send you codes to use for a discount which makes things more affordable.
Delivery is excellent; you pay for delivery and then choose a day you want your items to arrive. They arrive by courier and you can specify them to leave your items somewhere such as a garden shed if you will not be in. Standard next day delivery is £3.95 and a nominated delivery slot including a Saturday is £6.95 and within this time frame you can also choose a time slot so you are not waiting around all day for your items to arrive. If you are unhappy with anything you order then you can send it back with the same courier service free of charge.
Other than being able to find some of their items cheaper elsewhere the only other complaint i have with very is them not sending out a catalogue. It's so much easier to browse a catalogue than a website and even though the website is laid out well i have found myself giving up when looking for an item.
I believe very are a good option for people who need things but haven't got the money to afford to pay for them outright but ideally if you can manage to save for something then this would be better as you will be able to get it cheaper somewhere else.
Summary: A good online store with good credit facilities for those that need it
