Nigerians intending to purchase the new Samsung Diamond Series phones but are short of funds can now fulfil their fantasy through Wema Bank Plc.
The financial institution, through its digital banking arm, Wema by ALAT, has partnered with the South Korean manufacturing giant, Samsung Electric Industries, to sell smartphones to customers in Nigeria.
According to the Chief Digital Officer of Wema Bank, Mr Olusegun Adeniyi, prospective buyers can make a partial payment or buy on credit for any of the models in the series.
“This partnership between ALAT and Samsung will simplify the acquisition of high-end gadgets, provide customers with multiple payment options, and simplify logistics,” he stated.
“Our current and prospective customers who desire to own any of the models of the new Samsung Diamond Series phones can pre-order their choice on ALAT.
“They can also choose their preferred pick-up locations, and their orders will be delivered to their preferred destination,” he explained.
Additionally, Mr Adeniyi encouraged prospective buyers to take advantage of the partnership’s partial payment and credit options.
“Customers can either make full payment or pay a 30 per cent equity contribution from their selected account, after which the devices can be picked up at the preferred locations selected on their Pre-Order Forms.
“Individuals who wish to buy on credit can do so through the device loan feature on ALAT.” The banker added.
The bank noted that while customers will be notified by email or phone call through one of their contact agents when their order is delivered to their preferred locations, those who want to track the status of their orders can do so via telephone at 07000PURPLE or 08039003700, or via WhatsApp chat at 09044411010
