The reusable credit account can be used for products by small and medium businesses selling on Amazon
Amazon UK has launched a new, flexible payment method, Instalments by Barclays, helping customers to finance purchases of £100 or more on the UK website.
The reusable credit account can be used for products by small and medium businesses selling on Amazon. With Instalments by Barclays, Amazon is the credit broker and Barclays Partner Finance is the lender.
With Instalments by Barclays, customers will have greater flexibility to pay for their purchases, with financing options available on terms between 3 – 48 months. First-time users will select their choice of instalment plan from available term options at Amazon checkout, complete an online application, and in most cases, they’ll receive an immediate response from Barclays letting them know whether they’ve been approved, and setting out their spending limits. All lending is fully regulated by the FCA, and Barclays carries out robust credit and affordability checks to ensure that the customer is not given access to more credit than they can comfortably afford, Barclays said in a press release.
If approved, customers will find their reusable credit account added to their wallet and available at checkout while shopping on Amazon, allowing them to make repeat purchases without needing to reapply, as long as they remain within their overall credit limit and monthly payment limit.
Payments are automated via Direct Debit, giving customers a simple and convenient way to pay off their purchases on time, and the account can be managed directly through the Barclays App, even if the customer doesn’t bank with Barclays.
Customers need to meet certain eligibility requirements to apply for an instalment account – for example, they need to be over 18 years of age and have been a UK resident for at least three years. Instalments by Barclays is not available for orders containing Amazon Gift Cards, digital products, groceries, pre-sale products and out-of-stock products. The minimum spends for each order is £100, according to Barclays.
