Hi Friends! Welcome to today’s Loan Singh article. We are still facing the cheers of the Samsung Galaxy S9 release and we thought we could give you some more information on that attractive little 4-digit amount of Rs.2499. You get the Samsung Galaxy S9 for a one time down payment of Rs.9900 with Rs. 2499 as the monthly EMI including Airtel postpaid plan. The larger Samsung Galaxy S9+ can be yours for just Rs. 9900 as the down payment and Rs. 2799 as the monthly EMI including Airtel postpaid plan.
The idea behind providing such a fantastic offer is that despite being Samsung’s latest flagship handset, you can easily afford both the S9 and the S9+. You get Airtel’s bundled plans which are an excellent offer in my opinion. Before we look at the Rs.2499 and the Rs.2799 per month plan, let us look at the timeline as to how Samsung and Airtel got on with the release of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and the Airtel offer.
Airtel’s Online Store
India’s largest telecom provider Bharti Airtel introduced the Samsung Galaxy S9 and the Samsung Galaxy S9+ on its Online Store on Friday the 16th of March 2018. The two handsets are being offered with excellent down payment options towards instant financing. The handsets are also being bundled with Airtel monthly plans which provide a host of features apart from data and unlimited talk time.
Launched on October 16th 2017, the Airtel’s Online Store platform was created by Airtel along with its partners, Seynse Technologies (developers of Loan Singh), in offering premium ranged smartphones for really affordable down payment options. The smartphones would also be bundled with Airtel’s postpaid plan.
Airtel’s Online Store, working in partnership with its multiple partners, provides an easy and hassle-free online experience where you, the customer, can purchase the Samsung Galaxy S9 or S9+ by simply adding it into your shopping cart, getting an instant credit verification done and receiving a door-step delivery for the same. This is a pioneering step that amalgamates e-commerce and online financing.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 64GB variant is available for a down payment of Rs. 9900 with a monthly installment of Rs.2499 for a tenure of 24 months. The Rs.2499 monthly installment also consists of a built-in postpaid plan which provides 80GB data with unlimited calling. There are also subscriptions added towards Amazon Prime, Airtel TV, Airtel Secure and Wynk Music.
To ensure that the Airtel Online Store provides an easy and hassle-free financing solution for the Samsung Galaxy S9, Airtel has partnered with Seynse Technologies (developers of Loan Singh), HDFC Bank, Federal Bank and Clix Capital. This collaboration allows a customer to simply add the Samsung Galaxy S9 to his/her cart, purchase the Samsung Galaxy S9 via instant credit verification and receive the smartphone at their doorstep. This is a pioneering process of the Airtel Online Store that combines both e-commerce and instant online financing.
Goa-based Seynse Technologies Pvt. Ltd prides itself on being associated with Airtel for the Airtel Online Store in allowing creditworthy individuals to buy the Samsung Galaxy S9. The role of Seynse, in the partnership, is to enable the technology and credit underwriting. Seynse simply determines if the customer is eligible to avail credit based on his/her financials and relevant financial criteria. This is nothing new for Seynse. Seynse is already developers of a digital lending platform called Loan Singh, which provides an online loan to salaried individuals. Loan Singh covers the entire digital loan lifecycle from application to disbursement, including EMI repayment and managing fund flow. Seamless integration between participating entities makes the entire loan lifecycle an everlasting experience.
