    Instalment Payment Plans

    There are 2 kinds of instalment plans available with OCBC: The 0% Instalment Payment Plan (IPP) and PayLite.

This scheme can be availed at around 1,000 participating outlets island-wide, including automotive businesses, educational institutions, insurance payments, shopping, travel, health clinics, and beauty and wellness centres. For example, if you buy items worth S$1,500 from Brighton Furniture, and apply for an IPP on the bill, it may be split into 6 interest-free instalments of S$250 per month. The bank decides the break-up of the amount and the duration in which the amount will be paid off. If the instalment amount is not paid every month on schedule, the regular interest charges of the credit card will come into force.

    With PayLite, you can convert purchases of more than S$500 into a fixed monthly repayment amount for up to 2 years. You can apply for this provision after making the purchase, through online banking or via the PayLite form that needs to be filled and faxed in to the bank, within 7 days of making the transaction.

    Reporting Lost/Stolen Credit Cards

    The moment you realise that your credit card is not on your person – either because it is stolen, lost or misplaced, the best practice is to report it to the bank immediately through OCBC credit card hotline number. This will ensure that the card gets blocked and no one can make any purchases using it any more. As long as you do this, your liability towards lost or stolen cards is only up to S$100. However, if you fail to do this, and fraudulent purchases are made on your credit card before you report the case, your liability is dependent on the bank’s discretion. If you can prove that you were in no way party to the fraudulent activity, and that your negligence is not a reason for either the loss or the late reporting of the lost card, then the bank may consider waiving your liability on the purchases made by another party. If you suspect that the card has been stolen, you should also file a police complaint and inform the bank about the actions taken by you.
