Demand for Apple Products during the Covid-19 Era

As the ongoing pandemic has made work from home mandatory for most individuals, there has been a sudden spike in the demand for iPads and Macbooks. Lately, Apple has also been launching many new-age products, such as Apple Watch SE, Apple Watch Series 6, iPad Air, and the iPad 8th generation. 

This has tempted a lot of new-to-credit buyers towards Apple products. The question which then arises is, how can people easily buy these high-end products without worrying about the expenditure?

The answer lies with ZestMoney, as it offers payment solutions for such customers who dream of owning an Apple product but may not have an immediate financial arrangement for buying the same. This consumer-lending fintech company’s objective is to make Apple’s premium tech products affordable for regular Indian consumers. The partnership between ZestMoney and Apple has brought a fresh ray of hope among customers who will now be able to purchase some of the best offerings from Apple by using the flexibility available with ZestMoney’s Pay Later option.

Zero-Cost EMI for Apple Product Enthusiasts

ZestMoney offers a credit limit to all customers who have completed digital KYC (online or physically in-store). Customers can then choose a repayment plan that suits their requirement while making the purchase. The best part of the scheme is that there is no manual intervention required for availing this service since it is entirely digital.

There are multiple “Zero-cost” EMI schemes designed by ZestMoney, in association with Apple. Customers can easily purchase newly launched Apple products, such as iPhone 12 with the help of these schemes. Customers who have limited or no credit history can also make the most of these schemes.

The Buy Now, Pay Later scheme helps customers in planning their finances well and utilise their income appropriately during challenging times. There is a significant demand seen in Tier II and III cities for Apple products. This demand grows even further as the festive season approaches.

Reasons to Buy an iPhone on EMI

There are multiple advantages of purchasing an iPhone on EMI through Zest Money. Mentioned below are some of them:

Budget-friendly: Buying an iPhone by making an upfront payment of the full price can have a significant impact on your monthly budget. It can also leave very little savings for any emergency needs. On the other hand, making payment through EMIs can ensure that you have a reasonable amount of savings at all times.

Premium iPhone is now Affordable: There are several iPhone models and variants and some of the premium variants come at a significantly higher cost. When a customer pays through EMI, he/she doesn’t have to pay the full cost and can therefore purchase a premium model.

Additional savings due to 0% Interest: With 0% interest, an iPhone can be easily bought on instalments. This attractive deal comes with no additional charge or extra cost. What’s more, your bank account fetches you interest on the total amount that you did not have to pay upfront while buying the phone.
