OPPO Mobile has entered into a partnership with Lipa Later, a credit offering company, to allow customers to purchase OPPO devices through instalments as it aims to increase sales in the Kenyan market.
Customers will enjoy a 3.5 per cent interest rate on purchase of OPPO F7 using the payment plan, a drop from the initial 4 per cent.
OPPO Kenya brand manager Jesse Wu believes the new arrangement and the quality and uniqueness of the the OPPO F7 will have a great impact on sales.
“Since we launched OPPO F7 in May this year, there has been increased uptake of the device because of its unique features including 25 megapixel and artificial intelligence capabilities, as well as its 6.23-inch super full screen, the largest in the market. We believe through this credit payment option, more customers will have an opportunity to access this great device thus boosting our revenue in sales,” he told Tech Break.
At the same time, Lipa Later business development manager Claudine Gakundi said: “We believe this partnership will give an opportunity to customers who would like to own a good smartphone and cannot pay upfront, but through instalments.
"At Lipa Later we guarantee full payment of your device as we give you an opportunity to pay without a hustle.”
The top tier mid-range smartphone has a 25MP artificial intelligence selfie camera feature with 4GM RAM and 64GB ROM, and currently retails at Sh35,990 or Sh4,260 per month with Lipa Later.
