💭 Doesn’t it feel like a dream to be able to “buy now, pay later”? After all, that is the basis of how a credit card works and we all know how much we love swiping our cards! The simple idea behind credit cards is to allow people who may not be able to afford to make a large sum of payment upfront but is able to repay in forms of installments. Well, this payment concept is now not only limited to credit cards and physical stores.
Homegrown fintech startup, Rely.sg is introducing a new way to pay for your shopping online. Building on the “buy now, pay later” concept, Rely is providing a service that shoppers can use to split the payment for their purchases into 3 equal monthly payments. You’ll be able to make payment with debit cards too, which opens up a whole new payment avenue for users like us. With e-commerce on the rise, it is the perfect time for Rely.sg to launch installment payments for online shoppers too instead of just limiting the option to retail stores.
This transparent payment option by Rely SG removes the implications of compound interest and hidden fees. Instead, Rely benefits from customers paying their orders in full and on time so it’s works out to be a win-win situation!
⚠️ Editor’s Note: While it is extremely tempting to start on an endless shopping spree, remember to only spend what you can afford to pay back. Spending responsibly today goes a long way. 🙂

IT’S SO EASY TO ‘RELY’ ON THEM
I’ve tried it personally myself, and wow, I must say I was amazed with how seamless the integration is and it really enhanced the whole user experience! The account took me less than 1 minute to create and inputting my credit card information was a breeze. To top it all off, my favourite part of the whole experience is that I get to choose whether I want to make 2 payments or 3 payments depending on my spending habits. If you are wondering how to be eligible for Rely’s installment payment system, these are the few criteria that you must fulfill:
- You must be over 21 years old
- You must be a Singapore Citizen or Permanent Resident
- Use a Singapore-issued debit card
- Have a valid mobile number and email
According to Hizam Ismail, Rely’s CEO and co-founder, this service is targeted to suit the needs and lifestyle of younger shoppers in Singapore. The idea came when he noticed online shoppers are mainly millennials and will dominate the consumer markets over the next few years. The fintech firm is actively on the look out to partner with more fashion and beauty retailers to expand its ‘Buy Now Pay Later’ service.
