Point of sale (POS) finance – also called retail finance, in-store credit or store instalment credit – refers to fixed-term loans provided by, or on behalf of, a retailer to enable a consumer to make a specific purchase. It includes purchases of goods from high street stores and online as well as purchases of services from medical, beauty or other providers

Many retailers choose to subsidise the cost of the credit as a promotional expenditure and offer “interest-free credit” or “zero per cent finance”.

It is used by both national retail chains and independent shops, most commonly in the home and furniture, jewellery and electricals sectors.

  • Loans are generally set up as personal loans, not secured on the asset and without a lease arrangement.
  • Interest-free loans are generally for 3-12 months with an APR of 0% (i.e. no additional fees are charged)
  • Charged-for loans are generally for periods of 12-60 months with an APR of 15-20% being typical.
  • Some retailers offer both fixed-term, product specific POS alongside revolving credit such as store card accounts

Until recently, purchases needed to be over £200in value for POS finance to be viable, given fixed set-up costs. But, in the last couple of years, there has been growth in smaller and shorter-term interest free offers, with minimums as low as £30.
