Pay Later is a simple and flexible payment option that gives customers the power to buy what they need and pay for it over time. Loan amounts can range between $75 and $400 and have 0% APR and no interest.*
Is Synchrony Pay Later different from a credit card?
Yes. Synchrony Pay Later is a single-purchase installment loan, which gives customers the power to make purchases today and pay them off over time in predictable, equal payments. Customers can have more than one Synchrony loan open simultaneously, but each loan is closed when it is paid in full.
How will the customer receive their account number since there is no physical card?
The customer will add the single-use Pay Later virtual Mastercard to their Apple or Google wallet within 15 minutes of loan acceptance and complete their purchase at the register within 24 hours. The account number can be provided to the customer if they call into the Synchrony Credit Center and complete identity verification.
