What does "in a couple of pay checks time" mean? When you sell a product

And the buyer said : I can’t afford the dress right now, but maybe in a couple of pay checks time !

What does the buyer mean; he wants to pay this dress in a several times? Or he wants to buy it later?

The buyer would like to buy the dress at a later time, when he/she can afford it. Or the potential buyer might buy the dress at a later time, when he/she can afford it.

He means that he will be able to afford to buy the dress not at the next salary he receives (consider it to be the first pay cheque) but at the following (i.e. the second payment). It implies that the dress is quite expensive. If he gets paid weekly, he will be able to buy the dress in a couple of weeks time.
