Everybody has a mental list of experiences and goals they are trying to achieve in their lifetime — having that dream wedding in the Bahamas or finally attaining that world-renowned MBA — however, this is not without its financial worries as a result of such costly aspirations.  Wouldn’t it be great if you could enjoy those life milestones without fear of money troubles later on? A little taste of financial freedom to check off a bucket list item or two can be a catalyst for good mental health — a vacation, a fancy home renovation or a short course that builds new skills. 

This is where “buy now, pay later” platforms are starting to gain traction across Asia and the world. It’s simple, set up an account on your preferred platform and use the built-in wallet to make purchases with partner vendors on the platform. As long as you follow the outlined payment schedule, payments can carry little to no interest.

PaySlowSlow is the latest buy-now-pay-later platform in Asia and has recently launched in Singapore with a growing list of merchant partners that includes — yoga classes, jewelry stores, beauty treatments, dental work, electronics, and so much more. The service allows you to spread out payments across four separate installments, all at zero interest rates (Each missed payment entails a late fee which is capped at $15). The best part? New accounts will get a free S$10 credit with over S$50 spent. Just sign up with the code “FIRSTTIME” to get the deal. 

Right now, you can make in-store purchases through merchant QR codes on display at various locations and every transaction is cashless, but the company’s e-commerce platform is coming soon later this year. Payslowslow will send new updates through their social media channels.

The brand is also running a Valentine’s campaign from now until Feb. 25 at 6pm (that’s this Friday) with two special giveaways for single folks or couples. Take your pick of a 90-minute Oxylift carat facial worth S$398 or a 60-minute couples massage with a herbal mask and back scrub worth S$298 a session from Immortelle360. To enter, like and follow Payslowslow SG (@payslowslowsg) and Immortelle360 (@pretty_immortelle360), then comment under this post and tag three friends. Then, share the post and you’ll get a chance to win. You need to be 23 and up to win, but the prize is transferable if you want to give it to someone else. 

There are also going to be bi-weekly giveaways from more merchants as the year gets going, so keep an eye out. If you are curious to learn more about how Payslowslow works and if it is right for you, head over to their website for more info!
