Can I split an order to pay some by Afterpay and the rest by some other means? (eg. credit card)

When will my four Afterpay instalments need to be paid?
If you are a first time Afterpay customer, or have yet to complete a full payment cycle with Afterpay, your first payment will be taken at the time of your order transaction with the remaining three payments deducted by Afterpay from your nominated credit or debit card each fortnight over the following 6 weeks. The funds for the first payment must therefore be available on your nominated card at the time of checkout. Once you have completed your first full payment cycle with Afterpay, the initial payment for any future purchases you pay for using Afterpay will be debited 14 days after the transaction, where the total transaction value is less than $500. If the purchase value is equal to or exceeds $500, the first instalment must be paid at the time of the transaction occurring. The payment relationship is between you and Afterpay, and at any time you can log into your Afterpay account to see your payment schedule and make a payment before the due date if you wish. Otherwise Afterpay will automatically deduct the instalments from your debit or credit card every fortnight.
