What are Installments and Promotions

With Installments and Promotions, you can offer to your customer the possibility to buy your products paying in a determined number of installments with a reduced interest rate. Regardless of the number of installments selected by your customer, you will receive the full amount of the purchase minus the commission free agreed with PayU.

To perform the configuration of Installments and Promotions based on the agreements you have with bank entities, contact your sales representative.

Months Without Interests (MSI - Meses sin intereses)

Months Without Interests (known in Mexico as Meses sin intereses) lets you offer to your customers the possibility to pay in a defined number of interest-free installments (3, 6, 9, 12, or 18). Unlike the promotions model, when using MSI you don’t need to query the promotion id.

To request the usage of MSI, contact your sales representative.
