Over the years, banks and e-commerce stores have offered customers all kinds of different payment methods. Recently, one of the increasingly popular trends is allowing customers to buy now, pay later.

In fact, according to 2021 Global Payments Report by FIS-Worldpay, buy now, pay later is expected to more than double its market share by 2024!

In simple terms, buy now, pay later essentially means getting your item first and paying for it via monthly instalments

While it's been around for credit cards for a long time, more and more platforms, such as e-wallets and e-commerce stores are slowly implementing it.

It's especially useful when you have to make a large purchase, as you have the option to break your purchase into instalments instead of paying it all in one-go, giving you that extra peace of mind. In most cases, you also get to enjoy zero interest instalments, which means you don't have to pay any additional fees.

Knowing just how beneficial and helpful buy now, pay later can be, CIMB Bank recently announced their 0% Flexi Payment Plan, to help you make your purchases more attainable

Be it shopping online, buying health products, paying for medical bills, or even settling your children's tuition fees, CIMB Bank wants to be assist you every step of the way with the 0% Flexi Payment Plan feature on their credit cards. 

Best of all, CIMB Bank's 0% Flexi Payment Plan lets you enjoy 12-month interest-free instalments whenever you spend at least RM500. So worth it, right?

This means that the full price of the product or services purchased will be broken down into 12 months, with no upfront payment required or additional charges at all. For instance, if you buy a pair of ear buds for RM600 under the 0% Flexi Payment Plan, you would only pay RM50 monthly for a year. Just buy now and pay later! 

To enjoy the 0% Flexi Payment plan, you'll need to apply for a CIMB Bank Credit Card, which is a seamless process and can be done online in just 10 minutes!

Plus, CIMB Bank offers a plethora of credit cards to cater to your needs, whether you're looking to accumulate points, enjoy cash rebates, or earn miles.
