Tymebank MoreTyme - Zero-Interest Credit

MoreTyme is a no-interest credit payment method from TymeBank. It allows users to purchase what they want and pay for it in 3 interest-free instalments.

There are no monthly fees attached to the payment method, meaning, you will never pay more than the original price of what you purchased.

It is a “buy now, pay later” solution for in-store purchases. Customers can purchase items and take them home immediately.

With Tymebank MoreTyme, customers are only expected to pay 50% of the original price upfront and the following 2 remaining instalments will be divided into 25% of the credit.

The second instalment needs to be paid 30 days after purchase while the third and last payment is expected 60 days after purchase.
