Our Payment Options

At Home & Maker, we reject the ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach. Because frankly, one size very rarely does fit all. We believe our clients are all completely unique, with individual needs and preferences. Which is why we offer you so many different options when it comes to making your payment.
