Interest Free Payment Plans

Today, more and more retailers both online and in physical stores are offering interest-free payment plans through a credit card or financing company. There are many different interest free payment financing options available and they offer benefits to both customers and businesses.

What are interest free payment plans?

Interest-free payment plans allow customers to make a purchase and pay it back in instalments, with no interest to pay for a specified period of time. You can apply for this kind of financing either in-store or online just before you make your purchase. Interest free payment plans will vary between loan companies, so make sure you read the terms carefully before making your purchase. To be eligible to shop interest free, you’ll need to meet the repayment requirements. For example, you may need to meet minimum monthly repayments and once the interest free period ends, you’ll then be charged interest on the outstanding balance. If you don’t meet the requirements, as well as interest, you may also be charged additional fees depending on the terms and conditions of the specific arrangement. You may also need to spend a minimum amount of money before you are eligible for the offer.

Interest-free payment plans can also have other associated fees such as establishment fees, account keeping fees, annual fees and late payment fees. As with other loans, it’s important to make sure you know exactly what the terms and conditions are before you sign up to avoid any unexpected charges. You’ll also need to keep track of time if you want to pay back the full purchase price within the interest-free period. 

What are the benefits of interest free payment plans?

One of the benefits to customers of interest free payment plans is that they will be able to buy items and start using them now even if they don’t have the money to pay for the whole purchase upfront, and it can be quicker and easier than taking out cash loans. Interest free payment plans can really help when you are buying big-ticket items such as TVs, fridges, furniture or expensive jewellery, especially if you know you can pay off the debt within the interest free period.
