This illustration is only an example. Actual figures may differ due to the inclusion of Effective Interest Rates (EIR). Check with your bank for the exact figures.
How to make the Payments
- The bank decides the amount to be paid for every instalment.
OCBC card credit limit will be reduced by the amount of purchase price that remains unpaid.
- For any instalment remaining unpaid after the due date, finance charges, fees, and interest will apply.
- Any termination or cancellation of the credit card account or the IPP before the full settlement of the purchase price is subjected to a S$150 administrative fee along with the full payment.
- For any early repayment before an amount is due, the bank charges a fee at its discretion.
- The purchase should have been made using your principal card or supplementary cards that are connected to your principal card.
- Submit your application for PayLite at least 7 days before your payment is due.
- Transactions that are converted into PayLite are not awarded Voyage Miles, Titanium Bonus Miles, ROB$, or OCBC$.
- All dues must be settled on or before their respective due dates. Failure to do so will attract finance charges and interest as applicable.
- A $S150 administrative fee will be charged for early repayment, termination of your card account and/or PayLite, or for changing the PayLite tenure.
- PayLite does not apply to Cash Advances, Bank Fees and Charges, Balance Transfer, Cash-on-instalment transactions, 0% IPP transactions, and other non-retail transactions that the bank may determine.
