We are the leader in the no credit required, lease to own space. Have bad credit? Don’t have credit history? Not an issue. We offer a simple, straight-forward lease to own payment option to help you acquire the products you want and need from our top retailer and merchant partners. These include electronics, appliances, furniture, automotive, musical instruments, and more.
What is lease to own?
We are glad you asked! Lease to own means that you make recurring payments for the use of the products you have selected. You have no long term obligation to continue leasing, and can return the product to Katapult at any time with no further obligation other than for amounts past due.
In addition, you have several options to acquire ownership of the product you are leasing. A lease purchase agreement through Katapult offers flexibility that may make it more attractive than financing. With each payment, you have the option to continue leasing, buyout, or return your items.
Lease to own gives you the power to purchase what you need when you need it.

Do I pay sales tax using Katapult?
Yes. We charge and collect sales tax. Sales tax is added to all lease to own payments and buyouts.
Does Katapult accept down payments?
Not currently, but this is something we are working on for the future, so check back with us.
Does Katapult charge an interest rate (Annual Percentage Rate)?
No, we offer you a lease to own program. Customers are entering into a lease purchase agreement to lease products with an option to own, by exercising an Early Purchase Option or making all lease to own payments scheduled in the lease purchase agreement. The lease purchase agreement is not a credit transaction. Lease to own payments do not include an interest rate or APR and these will not be used to calculate the lease amount.
We consider the following four factors when calculating the lease to own payment.
1. The cash price of the product
2. The state in which the customer resides
3. The maximum term a customer can lease the product
4. The state/city sales tax rate
How do I cancel my order?
Please contact the retailer to cancel your order before it has been delivered. We will cancel your lease purchase agreement once we receive the retailer’s confirmation that the order has been canceled. If you want to cancel the lease purchase agreement after the product has been delivered to your home, you will need to reach out to the Katapult Customer Service Team to coordinate the return by calling 833- KATAPULT (528-2785) or via email to [email protected] or by using the LiveChat feature.

No credit? Bad credit? No problem. We understand that things come up in life. We work with customers that have no credit, bad credit or a bankruptcy. “No credit required” does not mean nor imply that no inquiry will be made of credit history or creditworthiness. We may check past transactional history and report information about your lease purchase agreement to credit reporting agencies, but no established credit history is necessary.
What are the advantages of Katapult lease purchase agreement vs. a loan (financing)?
Loans generally offer lower recurring payments than lease purchase agreements, while lease purchase agreements offer the flexibility of continuing to lease, buy, or return the product. Also, there is no danger of penalty interest (be that compounding or deferred) or loan acceleration with Katapult.
Loan: You can borrow money to buy something and you pay it back over time, plus interest.
Katapult Lease purchase agreement: You make the appropriate lease purchase agreement payments on or before the due date for the use of your products. With each payment you may choose one of three options:
1. You can continue using the products by making the lease renewal payment in advance of the payment due date.
2. You can buy the products at any time.
3. You can return the products to Katapult with no further obligation, except for any past due balances and any restocking fees that may apply.

2.) Buy the products outright at any time during your lease purchase agreement term.
3.) Return your item(s)
