Products and Services
To accomplish our goal of ensuring the best experience with finance, we have our core offerings integrated into the app itself. For millennials, early access and exposure to credit not only improves their future financial aspects but also goes a long way in increasing the financial inclusiveness of our country at large.
An estimated 480 million youngsters will fall in the 15-35 age group in India by 2025 – and our vision is to build a product that serves the unmet financial needs of this extremely important segment of the population.
The SlicePay Card
Once a customer signs up and applies for SlicePay credit, a SlicePay Card is assigned to them in a couple of hours. The virtual card has a 16 digit unique number with a CVV and expiry, similar to any transactional card. The card can be used to facilitate any form of purchase on the internet. We already have 1000+ merchants including some of the most revered brands like Amazon, Flipkart, Myntra, Zomato, Swiggy, Paytm etc.
A physical version of the same SlicePay Card is also dispatched to the customer which can be used as a debit/credit card on merchants with a facility to accept cards. Students can use it to buy now and pay later, offline too!
We understand not all transactions are online, especially in the Indian demographic. We Indians love cash and a lot of our day to day transactions are accelerated by it. At SlicePay, we understand this and hence we have a unique product feature wherein users can simply transfer SlicePay credit in the form of cash to their bank accounts.
This can be withdrawn, used via their existing bank merchant, sent to another account – as the user deems it fit to use.
Zero Interest Plans, Low-cost EMIs, and EMI for Students
SlicePay provides EMI for students. Online transactions and bank transfer transactions are both interest-free for a period of up to 50 days. That is, no interest is levied if repayment is made by the due date. All of the month’s transactions can be seen in the app interface. Users get an option to choose if they wish to convert a particular expense into low-cost EMIs.
How the ‘Buy Now, Pay Later’ Card Works?
Okay, so you can pay later with SlicePay, great! How does it all work though? We have one of the smoothest and shortest onboarding processes an everyday user would come across.
The sign up only requires a phone number to begin. The card can be activated from within the app using your College ID and Address Proof and it is activated within an hour. A new user gets a starting credit of Rs 4,000 which can be further extended up to Rs. 60,000. You can start the SlicePay Card immediately once activated.
This is how the entire billing cycle works.
- You place any number of orders between 1st of the current month to the last date of the current month using SlicePay Card.
- Your bill gets generated on 1st of the next month, slice it before 5th of the same month with the available EMI tenures.
- Or simply pay it all in one go – interest-free.
- Have a larger list of purchase? Simply convert all your spends in EMIs and pay month after month.
If this sounds like a lot, here is a similar analogy to make it simpler. It is how you use your postpaid phone connection. You can make calls, SMS, data recharges etc. through the month and you pay your bill by the due date! Also, since a larger bill can be sliced into parts, it also serves as EMI for students.
One of the reasons why we reiterate – “Your spends are now ‘postpaid’, your happiness, ‘prepaid’!” pretty often.
Who can use this Credit and where?
A college student who is in their graduation year and students who have been customers but now graduated are also free to use the card and SlicePay credit and enjoy the freedom to buy now pay later. We are in the process to expand our services to a larger demographic but that will come later.
- Online shopping
- Transfer cash to the bank account, withdraw it and use it as you please.
- Pay your tuition fee.
- Buy a MacBook
- Get the latest phone
- This list is endless.
Your SlicePay Card can also top up your bank account and Paytm. In need of cash? Transfer money to your bank account and use it at your convenience. See a great discount on Paytm? Top up the wallet in few taps. Take the SlicePay journey and turn your College ID and Aadhar into a ‘wallet’ in under 2 hours.
Credit Card for Students Vs. SlicePay Card for Students
SlicePay prides in itself for being millennial inclusive. We primarily cater to students and that is where we stand ahead of banks and other financial institutions which provide a student credit card. Majority of the financial institutions aren’t inclusive of a huge and very important population of our country – students and are in some ways biased against this demographic. Some of the benefits that make us stand out-
- There is a large amount of paperwork involved with traditional financial institutions when giving out a credit card for students. SlicePay grants immediate access to credit with just their college ID and address proof.
- Low credit amount disbursed to the student credit card. SlicePay, in its vision to achieve financial inclusion for students, has disbursal up to Rs. 60,000 for students. Credit card for students usually do not lend such high amounts to students.
- High-interest rates and lack of flexible EMI for students. Our interest rates are low and our customers get complete freedom when choosing their EMI tenures.
- Interest-free EMI options. Not only do we have long-term EMI solutions with low interests, but we also offer the option to shop in 4 interest-free EMIs thereby ensuring students have complete freedom on their finances and use credit to empower for their needs, not see it with scepticism. It is like an interest-free credit card for students.
- Cash transfers are not allowed and cash withdrawals come with really high-interest rates on student credit card. SlicePay offers instant cash transfers to the bank with the same benefits as all our other services.
Not only this, our interns are colleges students themselves who take care of marketing, operations and assist customers with onboarding, resolve their issues and ensure they are delighted every time they choose us.
