The new service allows US customers to spread payments out over longer periods of time, for extra flexibility whenever they shop online. Pay Monthly is dedicated to any large purchases between USD 199 and USD 10,000 and allows selected users to break the total cost into monthly payments over a 6-24 month period, with the first payment due one month after the purchase.
Once a customer opts for Pay Monthly, they will have to complete an application at checkout and, if approved, will be presented with three different payment plans, varying in lengths and risk-based APRs between 0% and 29.99%. Customers are also allowed to compare the different options and choose the most suitable for them.
Similar to PayPal’s original BNPL offering, Pay in 4, Pay Monthly doesn’t charge any late fees and allows users to choose their preferred payment method at checkout. They can also select automatic payments up front when finalising their transaction.
