The new payment option enables vehicle owners to split insurance payments into three equal, zero-interest payments

"Users can choose to split the payment into three months. Six-month and 12-month options will be enabled in the next release," said Bjak vice president of operations Fatin Izzati.

The company is partnering with Atome, a leading buy now, pay later provider in Southeast Asia, to introduce the flexible payment process for customers.

"This partnership aims to make auto insurance renewal more accessible to the public especially during the post-pandemic period," said Fatin.

All customers will be able to choose the buy now, pay later option for their insurance and road tax renewals on Bjak's website starting next month.

The first payment can be made by debit or credit card and the following two payments will be automatically spread 30 days apart without any fees or interest.

Other payment options already offered on the platform include debit card, credit card, online banking, cash via 7-Eleven, and credit card instalment plans.
