Google Store has silently fixed the minimum threshold of $149 to avail of it’s interest-free credit financing, without making any formal announcements.
9to5Google spotted an updated support page where Google states that users can only avoid interest-free credit for purchases of above $149 in the US.
A Minimum Purchase Value for Credit
To push the sales of it’s native devices, Google Store offers a line of credit to people in the US, who should repay the amount within a specified date every month to avoid extra fees.
This financing has long been a go-to method for those buying their Pixel devices, served in partnership with Synchrony. Customers can purchase smartphones, tablets, watches and accessories without interest if they pay on time.
Well, an updated support page spotted by 9to5Google this week has reported that Google has set a minimum purchase threshold of $149 to avail of their interest-free financing option. Reflecting this, the checkout page only shows the credit option if the purchase value is $149 or more.
For those outside the US where Google Store Financing is unavailable, this would cause you to fallback on using a credit card or PayPal. Furthermore, Google explained that it’s $149-mimimum interest-free financing is available for 12 months. At the same time, the 24-month option is available exclusively to Pixel A-Series devices and the 36-month financing is available to devices that cost more, such as Pixel flagships.
It can be frustrating for items below the $149-mark, like Pixel Watch bands but we can’t complain since the credit line is designed for buying smartphones. Anyhow, it’s up to you to decide which payment mode to use and the flexibility.
