    Hi,
    I am looking for a online photostore in europe that offers a payment arrangement. Like buying in multiple mothly terms... I do not know the correct english description, but you'll get the idea I think.

    Don't get me wrong I am not going crazy here. But some stuff will last a lifetime and is better to buy it as soon as possible. And what's wrong with a mothly payment of 25 dollar for a certain period...

    I know some stores must offer this kind of thing, but I haven't found one. Maybe it's for the best :smile: but I'll ask you guys anyway....:smile:

    In English that's usually called an "installment plan." I think installment plans have largely been replaced by credit cards. Large retailers that have "buy now, pay later" plans usually are just issuing store credit cards, maybe with 0% interest for some limited period, like 6 months, but a high rate like 22% when the introductory period ends. If you have a credit card with a good rate, it's usually a better deal just to use it, rather than taking the store's credit plan.

    It's usually just better to get a bank loan. Stores aren't known to give the best interest rate usually.

    well I found my own solution which is fairly simple:

    I called a local giant media store in which I once saw some bottom line manfrotto stuff. Because tey are huge they have all kinds of arrangements. They can order anything I want and make a installment plan.
    I will hear next week what they can offer me, and then I'll decide. I will only do it if it is really a good deal.

    A bankloan is another option. I will talk to them to next week.

    I actually dislike these kinds of things. But I said A I feel like I have to say B as well. I need a good head to complete my outfit.


    thanks guys I think this thread is closed...
