For the uninitiated, Amazon Pay is a service that’s been around since September 2018. The “Later” suffix means just as it sounds.

  • It offers instant credit on any of the products (priced up to Rs. 60,000) listed on Amazon
  • You can even buy groceries and pay utility bills like electricity/water/mobile recharge on credit.
  • Exceptions include cash equivalent products (jewelry, Amazon Pay Gift Card, Amazon Pay balance top-up), Gold/silver bullion, products from Amazon Global Store, or foreign merchants.
  • You will have an option to repay the credit in the subsequent month at no additional fees or divide large payments into monthly installments (EMI) for up to 12 months.
  • “no additional fees” however doesn’t subsume interest. You may still have to pay an interest rate of 1.5 to 2 percent a month. That said, you can benefit no-cost EMI option, wherever applicable.
