How to Apply
Simply add the product you want to your shopping cart and checkout in the normal way. Once on the Payment Method page choose "Apply for Finance" as your payment method. After confirming your order you will be taken to the online application.
Once the application is completed you should receive an instant decision, provided you are successful you will then need to pay a deposit. Once the deposit it taken then we are notified, we can then check the order out and then process it. You will then receive confirmation from us and an order will show up in your order history page in your account. No orders are complete until the deposit is paid. Each stage of the finance application will be emailed to you by DEKO. The processing stage by us is a manual process and is only done during working hours.
How long does it take to Apply?
Typically less than 3 minutes. Your application is then instantly sent to the finance company and they will typically respond with their decision in around 10 seconds. Some applications may take longer to process. If for any reason an instant decision cannot be made, we will send you an email the moment the finance company makes a decision (during working hours).
How Much Can I Borrow?
Between £250 - £7500 (this amount excludes deposit so Minimum in Basket is: £277.78)
Is a Deposit required?
Yes, A Minimum of 10% and a Maximum of 50% to be paid during the Application Process. The deposit is only taken upon completion of a successful application. If the application is not successful then a deposit is not taken.
How are my Monthly Payments Paid?
Directly from your nominated bank account. The first payment is due One Month after the date of the Finance Agreement and subsequent payments will be due on that date each month.
What Can I Purchase?
Anything from our website with a total order value of at least £277.78 and a maximum total order value of £15,000. This will include upgrades and repairs.
What Length of Repayment is Available?
You can choose 12, 18, 24, 36 or 48 Months.
Can I Pay My Agreement off Early?
Yes You Can, your Credit Agreement will explain how. A 19.5% APR Carries a Monthly rate of 1.52%.
Example 12 months Promotional Credit Finance Paid After 1 Month
Total Order Value......................................................£1000.00
Amount of Credit.......................................................£900.00
Interest generated after one month @ 1.52%..........£13.68
Amount Repayable after one month @ 1.52%.........£913.68
You can also make accelerated payments to reduce your monthly repayments/pay off the agreement early, so if you wanted to pay off your agreement after say 3 months it would be possible to do so, just use the interest rate of 1.52% like in the example above. Again your finance agreement will have full details on this.
Will the finance company perform a credit check?
Yes. A credit check forms part of the automated decision making process and is part of a responsible lending policy. You can find our your credit rating before making an application on websites such as Experian.
Do I have to provide ID?
In rare cases, for security measures DEKO may require a proof of ID after your application has been approved and your deposit has been paid. This step is to verify your transaction, and a check will be done on any ID provided. If your ID fails the check or you are unable to provide a valid proof of ID we will be in contact. Should you need to provide ID you will be notified via email from DEKO.
What if I have bad credit?
The finance company uses an automated credit check as part of their decision making process. If you have an adverse credit record it may affect their decision. To give yourself the best chance of acceptance, please ensure you complete the credit application form correctly. Please don't apply for credit unless you're sure you will be able to comfortably repay it.
I have been approved for credit and paid the deposit, what happens next?
DEKO will authorise us (UK Gaming Computers) to process your order. We will then update your order confirm everything is going ahead and you will receive notification via email and in your account history. Please be aware this is a manual process and can only be updated during working hours so don't worry if you don't receive an update over the weekend or at 3am!
I made an application but it was declined, why?
Unfortunately we are not given the reason why a customer is declined for credit. The authorisation process is carried out by the finance company and UK Gaming Computers and DEKO has no part in the decision. The decline message is sent to us with no explanation or justification. The reason for a decline is often that incorrect information has been entered in the credit application form. Please ensure you carefully enter all required information.
Finally if you receive a declined decision you will not be able to make another application for another 60 days. Please do not make multiple applications with the same details if you have already received a declined decision.
What happens if I do not pay the deposit
The order is not complete so we will not acknowledge one until the deposit is paid. If after 2 days the deposit remains unpaid then we will cancel the application and you will be reported which will affect your credit rating.
I made an application it has gone through but the product is still in my basket?
Perfectly normal. As the application is made on the DEKO website and not ours the basket may not clear itself. If you have successfully placed an order and we have processed it you can delete your basket contents should you wish.

If you make an application and it gets declined then you will not be able to make another application for another 60 days as it will automatically be pre declined so it is important that your application is completed as accurately and efficiently as possible.
- Make sure your details you fill in are correct - If you don’t then the finance company will almost certainly decline your application - if you make a false application then the finance company is unlikely to trust you to make your payments if you falsely fill in an application.
- One of the biggest reasons you will be declined is imputing the wrong address - Normally because its been input wrong or you use another address that is NOT your billing address
- Ensure your meet the criteria listed at the top of this page.
- A decision is affected by how much you borrow and how long you choose to make the payments. 12 month applications are far more likely to be accepted than say a 48 month application. Applications with a higher deposit amount are again much more likely to be accepted. Our advice would be to put down the largest deposit possible and choose the shortest finance plan possible.
- Do not make multiple applications. If you receive a referred decision then don’t go making other applications as you will get the same decision and the finance company will simply decline all referred applications if there is more than one.
