How Does Amazon’s Layaway Plan Work?
Shoppers can reserve items by clicking the “Reserve with Layaway” button next to the product (if the label is not near the product name, it may be due to multiple offers on the product, per Amazon) and pay 20% of the total cost of checkout to lock in the price. The costs are spread equally in five payments over eight weeks.
