  • 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.

    How Does The Facility Of No-cost Emis Work On Amazon.In?

    To get a fair idea about how the facility of no-cost EMIs works on Amazon.in, let us make a simple comparison of an air conditioner bought on the portal under a standard EMI scheme and the same product bought under a no-cost EMI scheme. Suppose the AC is available on Amazon.in for Rs.37,999.

    Listed below are the interest rates charges by some of the banks that the buyer will have to pay while buying the AC under a standard EMI and a no-cost EMI scheme:

    • A regular EMI scheme: While buying the AC on Amazon.in, if the customer chooses a regular EMI option, they will have the following tenure options to pick from and the interest rates will be decided accordingly. However, the customer will not have to pay a processing or convenience fee while making an EMI transaction:

      • Under a no-cost EMI: If an individual purchases the AC priced at Rs.37,999 under a no-cost EMI, they will not have to pay an interest only if they choose an EMI tenure of 3, 6, 9, or 12 months. If they chose a tenure of 18 or 24 months, the bank will charge them a standard interest rate. To further explain the concept of no-cost EMIs on Amazon.in, let’s use an example.

Since there are no additional costs involved in a no-cost EMI scheme, the customer ends up paying only the principal amount, which is Rs.37,999 in six different instalments.
