India's leading digital real estate platform on 1 March announced Rent Now Pay Later (RNPL) service in partnership with Bengaluru-based embedded finance start-up Niro.

With this service, customers wil have the option to pay their rent on credit. Rent can be paid on by users with a zero-convenience fee, a interest-free credit period of up to 40 days, as well as an option to convert rent payments into easy monthly instalments (EMIs).

Considering only 4 per cent of Indians have credit cards, the RNPL service affords non-carded users a significant flexibility in their financial planning. Also, the RNPL service further provides users with the option to upgrade their credit limit to be able to draw down cash for a variety of use cases, taking advantage of instant, low-interest rate loans.
