Sterling Bank’s PayWithSpecta To Boost Consumption, Sales
Specta, Sterling Bank’s financial technology lending platform, has created a digital credit solution known as PayWithSpecta which allows customers to pay for goods in instalments, while merchants are credited instantly helping businesses increase sales.
PayWithSpecta offers digital credit limits to customers to purchase items in-store at merchant locations or from merchant online platforms. It also gives Merchants the opportunity to access credit for their business activities.
Consumers can make purchases at zero percent interest rate at designated stores for those who choose 30 to 90 days repayment tenor and as low as 1.75 percent monthly for tenors of 7 to 12 months repayment tenor.
Divisional head, retail and consumer banking at Sterling, Shina Atilola, who disclosed this in a statement issued by the bank recently, said the new product will enable customers to buy goods from merchants in-store and from online platforms on credit.
According to Atilola, customers can assess their credit limits via the PayWithSpecta platform, use their limits at the merchant’s store and even access 30 per cent of the limit as cash. This will enable customers spread payment up to 12 months while the merchant gets his payments upfront.
He explained that to sign up, customers will provide their basic information and the platform will give an instant credit decision all within five minutes, he said. “The website will then generate a Specta ID for the customer. The customer can then utilize the spending limit by providing the Specta ID at any of the bank’s partner stores (online or in-store) to conclude a purchase,” he stressed.
He advised customers to do their shopping through PayWithSpecta with their Specta ID, saying, the Specta ID is the smartest way available in Nigeria to make purchases.
