    No Cost EMIs on Amazon

    As someone has rightly put, "It takes as much energy to wish as it does to plan." Human life surrounds around making wishes and working towards making them come true. However, a lot of times, the things we wish for remain monetarily unattainable. But not any more. One of the largest online shopping portals in India, Amazon.in offers its customers the no-cost EMI option on mobile. This finance scheme has gained popularity amongst consumers because of the convenience it offers. There are no additional costs applied to the EMIs under this scheme. So, while making a big-ticket purchase, customers will not have to pay a processing fee, an interest or a down payment. However, Amazon.in offers no-cost EMIs only on tenures of 3, 6, 9, and 12 months. If the customer avails a tenure of more than 12 months, they will need to pay an interest for the product they purchase. Let us take a look at the processes involved in this finance scheme offered by Amazon.in.
