    Credit card EMI uses your credit card limit to convert your purchase into installments. Suppose you make a purchase for Rs. 9,000 on your credit card and while buying select the credit card EMI option with a tenure of 3 months, then the bank instantly converts your purchase to three installments of Rs. 3,000. In the next credit card cycle, instead of paying Rs. 9000, you will need to pay only Rs. 3,000, and continue paying this for 3 months. A nominal interest or processing fee may be charged depending upon the various schemes running at the merchant.

    IMEI validation is done for Brand EMI transactions.

    The offers could be on any brand, product, bank card, being offered on any specific dates or any specific SKUs

    SKU promotions start with the cashier scanning SKU, IMEI/ Serial number from the billing POS and entering the amount in the billing POS and then transacting under the "Brand EMI" tender mode.
