By spreading the payment of the amount due over a simple schedule, this type of payment in instalments is an ideal solution for people with limited cash or simply for households wishing to smooth the impact of their expenses over time.

Very popular in recent years, paying in 2 installments is an excellent alternative in many situations.

This payment method can also be interesting for people who want to make other purchases close together in time or who anticipate reasonable future expenses.

For merchants, paying in two instalments is also an opportunity to attract customers who want to treat themselves to premium products. This is why one of the direct consequences of the implementation of this payment facility at merchants is the increase in the average basket of their customers.
