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. You 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.
