Convert your RuPay credit card purchases to EMI

If you’re a RuPay credit card holder, you can opt to pay for your purchases in installments rather than pay for the whole amount. You can convert your purchases to Equated Monthly Installments (EMI) in the Google Pay app. You can choose between the available EMI options provided by the issuer bank.

Disclaimer: Google Pay is merely a display-surface, and any EMI options [conversion-to-EMI, full pre-payment or foreclosure] are all services provided by the bank issuing the respective RuPay credit card.

Understand the EMI option

Want to make a purchase with the option of paying it back over a few months? Set up your EMI.

You can convert your RuPay credit card purchases to easy monthly installments on the Google Pay app.

When you make a payment with your RuPay credit card on Google Pay, you can:

  • Check EMI options from your bank for your purchases with select merchants.
  • Convert your purchase to EMI-based repayments.
  • Pre-pay the EMI, subject to your bank’s terms and conditions.

Things to know

Interest rates Interest rates

Banks typically charge a small interest fee for converting purchases to EMI. Credit card interest rates vary by bank. It depends on factors, like the repayment time.

Some banks offer EMI at no charge on certain products.

For queries about applicable interest rates displayed on Google Pay, contact the bank or the merchant issuing the EMI.

Tenure Tenure

The tenure for EMIs refers to the amount of time you have to pay in installments. Tenures for EMIs are usually from 3 to 18 months. You can select the tenure and pay the monthly installments at a specified interest rate throughout the tenure.

For queries about the interest rates displayed on Google Pay, contact the bank or the merchant issuing the EMI.

Bank processing fee Bank processing fee

There are processing charges and other fees for EMIs issued by banks. Depending on the bank's decision, the processing fee is either a flat cost or a proportion of the total sum. This fee is a one-time payment, either paid up front or included in the monthly credit card bill. When you confirm the EMI plan, the processing fee is displayed.

For queries about the processing fees, contact the bank or the merchant issuing the EMI.

Changes to your credit card limit with EMI

With EMI:

  • The total purchase amount will be deducted from your credit limit.
  • The equivalent amount will be added back to your limit when repayments are made.

For queries about changes to the credit limit displayed on Google Pay, contact the bank or the merchant issuing the EMI.

How EMI calculations work

  • The EMI is based on various factors, such as:
    • Rate of interest charged by the bank
    • Tenure chosen to repay the amount
  • The monthly credit card bill statement includes your monthly EMI.

Sample EMI calculation if you buy a new phone:

Phone purchase amount

₹10,000

Interest

If you select a plan for 10 months with an interest rate of 10%

10,000 x 10% = ₹1,000

One-time processing fee (Inclusive of GST) ₹50
Bank discount ₹200
EMI amount ₹850
Total amount ₹10,000 + ₹850 = ₹10,850

EMI plan over a 10 month period

₹1,085 x 10 = ₹10,850
