  1. PayLite After Purchase is an installment facility wherein select Citi Cardholders of good credit standing may convert an unbilled straight single-receipt retail transaction into PayLite, and pay the same, together with applicable interest and other fees, on installment basis (“Installment Transaction”). Cash Advance and Installment transactions, Interest Charges, and fees are not convertible under the PayLite After Purchase Facility. The PayLite After Purchase request will be subject to verification and credit approval by us. We may at our option require a minimum availment amount for PayLite After Purchase.

  2. Where we approve a request for PayLite After Purchase, the total PayLite After Purchase amount ("Installment Transaction Amount") shall be subject to these Terms and Conditions and all applicable terms and conditions under the Citi Card Agreement (“Cards T&C”) and all related provisions of the Citi Installment Facilities.
  3. The monthly installment due of your PayLite After Purchase transaction (the "Monthly Installment Due") is included in the Minimum Amount Due in your Statement of Account until the total Installment Transaction and the applicable interest rate are paid in full.

  4. You may compute the Monthly Installment Due by using the following formula:

    Installment Transaction Amount x [1+(Converted Monthly Factor Rate x Term)]
    Term

    The Monthly Installment Due comprises interest and principal components and is computed on a diminishing balance basis. The interest and principal components of the Monthly Installment Due vary each month and are computed as follows:

    • Interest component:

    Prior month's outstanding principal balance x monthly Effective Interest Rate (EIR). where monthly EIR = (1 + Annual EIR)1/12 - 1

    • Principal portion:

    Monthly Installment Due - interest component for the month.

  5. You agree to pay us interest on the Installment Transaction Amount on the dates specified in your Statement of Account at the applicable converted monthly factor rate with a corresponding effective interest rate per annum based on the outstanding principal balance and the Term as follows:

  6. NOTE: THE EFFECTIVE INTEREST RATES BELOW ARE BASED ON INTEREST COMPUTED ON A FIXED 30-DAY PERIOD PER MONTH. THE ACTUAL EIR MAY BE HIGHER OR LOWER AS THE INTEREST PORTION OF THE FIRST MONTHLY INSTALLMENT DUE IS COMPUTED BASED ON THE ACTUAL NUMBER OF DAYS FROM THE APPROVAL DATE OF THE INSTALLMENT TRANSACTION TO THE STATEMENT DATE, WHICH MAY BE MORE OR LESS THAN 30 DAYS.

    6 1.99% 48%
    12 1.99% 50.39%
    24 1.99% 49.22%

    *The Converted Monthly Factor Rate is presented as a guide that can be used to derive the Monthly Installment Due (principal plus interest).

  7. If you wish to cancel an Installment Transaction before its Term ends, you may do so without a prepayment penalty. In that case, you agree to pay in full the unpaid portion of the Installment Transaction Amount and the cancellation processing fee equivalent to P300. In case of promotions where we give you a premium item/s (which include promotional items, Usage Privileges, etc.), we may charge the full monetary equivalent of the premium item should you cancel the Installment Transaction.
  8. SUMMARY SCHEDULE OF FEES AND CHARGES

    Cancellation Processing Fee = P300
  9. The interest charge on the first Monthly Installment Due is computed based on the number of days from the approval date of the Installment Transaction to the Statement Date, which is the date when your Statement of Account is generated after each billing cycle. The interest on succeeding Monthly Installments Due is computed based on a fixed 30-day period. This will result in the first Monthly Installment Due being different from subsequent ones.
