How To Pay Off Catalogue Debt

Although the internet has had a huge effect on the way we shop for goods and services, catalogues are still frequently used to buy items and spread the cost over time. In the short term, these make certain purchases more affordable – but many are surprised by the often high-interest rates.

Potentially, even though you’re making the minimum payments on your debt, the total amount can actually increase. This can place some families in a position where clearing the catalogue debt seems like an unlikely prospect indeed.

Missing a catalogue payment usually leads to an initial response from the provider. Should payments continue to be missed, your account will likely be deactivated and the organisation may take action to recover the sums owed. This can involve debt collection agencies or bailiffs.


If bailiffs come to your door, it can be an extremely stressful experience. However, it’s important to remember that you aren’t powerless and have rights. For example, in the case of collecting catalogue debt, the bailiff is not allowedto force entry into your home.

Therefore, if you don’t want to let them in, you can just talk to them through a locked door or window. You don’t need to pay them on the doorstep, and you don’t need to open the door. Eventually, they’ll normally leave if you confirm the actions you’re taking to resolve the issue. Some individuals just choose to ignore them.

However, this is not a long-term solution. If you continue to ignore bailiffs, additional fees may be added while the catalogue debt will remain unpaid.


Falling behind with catalogue payments can certainly be worrying. Between the ever-growing debt and the concerns about what the company might do, it can seem like there’s no escape. Fortunately, you can contact us for a no-obligation, free conversation about what your next steps could be.
