Just in time for back-to-school shopping, National Book Store and consumer finance app BillEase have teamed up to make books and school and office supplies even more accessible.
This partnership is geared toward promoting a cashless society through the adoption of Buy Now, Pay Later (BNPL) services, extending its reach to more than 230 National Book Store branches nationwide.
BillEase enables hundreds of National Book Store offline branches to offer three cardless installment options at checkout:
- Pay later in 10 or 20 days
- Pay in 4 installments for small-to medium-ticket purchases
- Pay monthly over 3, 6, 9, or 12 months for big purchases with interest rates between 0% and 3.49%— the cheapest rate in the country
Shoppers will be able to scan QR codes using the BillEase app and enjoy the convenience of paying in light installments without the need for a credit card.
“Throughout our 81-year history, we’ve significantly impacted millions of lives with our dedication to education and empowerment,” stated National Book Store executive Adrian Ramos. “Our alliance with BillEase accelerates our journey, offering our customers financial freedom. Now, they can access essential educational resources and pay on their own terms, mitigating immediate financial pressures.”
“We’re thrilled to join forces with National Book Store and extend our flexible payment solutions to their vast customer base,” said Georg Steiger, the co-founder, and CEO of BillEase. “With this partnership, we’re not only making financial services more accessible, but we’re also underscoring the value of education. By offering an effective means to manage educational expenses, we’re essentially contributing to financial freedom, empowering individuals to invest in their learning journey.
