What is Amazon Pay Later?

Amazon Pay Later is the best way to get instant credit digitally for buying anything on Amazon. In other words, it is a replica of the ‘Buy now, pay later’ model. However, the instant credit offered by Amazon is up to 60,000 and is only for purchase on Amazon. You can use this feature for shopping during the Amazon Great Indian Sale. The best part of this Amazon Pay Later service is individuals can also use its credit to pay bills like water, mobile bills, electricity, etc.

How Does Amazon Pay Later India Works?

As you know that Amazon is an e-commerce site and cannot extend credit facilities to its customers. That means it is credited by its partner, CapFloat Financial Services Private Limited, a non-banking financial company. Any customer can avail of this service and can quickly pay the entire amount next month, or it can pay in 3 to 12 months EMIs. However, the best part is the individual doesn’t have to bear the interest cost.

To enter or take the credit from Amazon, you have to complete a one-time setup process that only takes a few minutes from your precious time. Moreover, to complete this process, the individual doesn’t have to enter their credit or debit card details on the site.

Steps to Complete Amazon Pays Later Registration

Amazon Pay offers this facility to their customers on the checkout page on their website. Also, they have the option to register via a mobile app.

The registration is just a 3-step easy process-

  • Complete your KYC and verify your identity
  • Accept the terms and conditions
  • Set-up auto-repayment option

However, if you have done KYC with the Amazon Pay balance, you can skip that option and move forward. Keep one thing in mind while doing KYC, it must be Aadhaar based on OTP verification. If you are planning to go for physical KYC, it will surely take some time, and you cannot make an instant purchase.

After that, the customer also needs to share its PAN number as Capital Float will check your credit history and then decide. Also, you have to show your address proof. The accepted documents by Amazon Pay Later are voter ID, Driving license, Aadhaar card, etc. These are similar to the detailed steps to complete Amazon Pay KYC.
