    online photostore in europe that will ....

    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 but I'll ask you guys anyway....

    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 I think installment plans have largely been replaced by credit cards.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.

    The only place I've seen that type of deal is Technik Direkt in Germany.

    See this link for a Canon 1v

    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...
