Amazonmonthlypayments can be a great way to make those big purchases more affordable but finding information on payment plans and eligible products can be difficult. In this guide we’ll answer some of the most frequently asked questions and show you how to buy now and pay later on Amazon.
While the retailer rarely promotes it, Amazon does offer monthly payments for eligible shoppers in the United States. We’re not sure why the company doesn’t shout about their payment plans, but we are guessing they would prefer shoppers pay the full amount up front.
Select “5 monthly payments option when adding your item to the cart or basket. At checkout, you will see your first initial payment amount plus delivery which will be paid when your item is shipped.
The remaining balance will be automatically charged to your credit card in equal payments. Amazon offers a wide range of electronic devices which are eligible for monthly payments. Another popular category for monthly payment items is laptops and computers.
Shoppers looking for laptops and computers on Amazon often prefer to choose to pay by monthly payments. Unfortunately not everyone is eligible for monthly payments, however if you live in the United States and are already a regular Amazon shopper then chances are you can take advantage of payment plans.
If you choose to pay by monthly payments, Amazon will split the cost of your purchase into 5 separate payments. Amazon makes it clear in their terms and conditions that they do not charge interest or fees.
In some cases Amazon will change your account status to allow monthly installments. More information can be found on international programs on the respective Amazon websites local to each country.
After pay only works with a selection of stores, and we do not believe Amazon will accept Afterpain anytime soon. You can use Quad pay to buy any item on Amazon and split the cost into 4 installments.

With these options, cardholders make equal payments on purchases made through Amazon at a 0% annual percentage rate (APR) for the duration of the financing period.The required payment under this option is the purchase price including tax and shipping, which is divided equally by the length of financing. Customers don't pay interest if the entire purchase is paid off within the specified length of time.
Any balance that remains incurs interest and a late fee. The APR is 25.99%, and interest is also assessed on the full promotional balance from the date of the purchase even if you've made payments.
This means it's in your best interest to pay off the card before the specified time period, otherwise you'll incur a lot of extra charges. Both cards have an APR that ranges between 14.24% to 22.24% depending on the cardholder's credit score.
These cardholders earn 2% cash back on purchases at restaurants, gas stations, and participating drug stores. Using the cash back can help offset the cost of the yearly Prime membership fee of $119.
Prime members who spend about $200 a month or more at Amazon will essentially recover the annual fee. In June 2019, Amazon launched a secured card to help customers with bad credit.
It offers special perks to business shoppers, including discounts for its Amazon Web Services. Additionally, Amazon has also talked of a checking account option that would build out on its prepaid gift card offering.
