According to the press release, when shopping online on or on the Amazon app, eligible RBC and Scotiabank credit cardholders will now have the option to select Instalments enabled by Visa as their method of payment for qualifying purchases.

This payment option is now available and enables eligible consumers to convert their purchases into smaller, fixed payments made over a defined period.

Visa has announced a new collaboration with Amazon that will provide Canadian consumers with more choice at checkout.

Officials at Visa announced the introduction of their instalment solution on Amazon facilitated through two of Canada’s leading issuers. This initiative aims to provide more consumers with diversified payment methods and greater financial control while shopping with the online merchant.

Instalments are gaining momentum in Canada as a preferred payment method among consumers. According to Visa research, more than half of Canadians (58%) are interested in using instalments and it is projected that by 2026, this payment method is expected to account for nearly one-quarter of all global ecommerce transactions.

Instalments enabled by Visa provide issuers, processors, and merchants with a better payment option to meet customers where they are. Together, Visa and Amazon are working to bring this payment option to more consumers around the world.
