Bharti Airtel has announced the launch of its Online Store that will offer a range of smartphones with down payments, instant credit verification and financing, and bundled monthly plans.
Airtel’s Online Store went LIVE with Apple’s iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus variants and the company plans to add devices from other brands to the store’s offerings in the future.
The iPhone 7 (32 GB) is available at a down payment of just Rs 7,777 and 24 monthly instalments of Rs 2,499. The monthly instalments have a built-in high-end postpaid plan which offers 30 GB data, unlimited calling (local, STD, national roaming), and Airtel Secure package that covers the device against any physical damage and offers cyber protection.
Airtel’s Online Store is an integrated digital platform aimed at making it easier for customers to upgrade to smartphones they always aspired for, without the constraint of high put-down prices and cumbersome financing schemes. All smartphones on the platform will come with down payments that are a fraction of the market price of the device and the convenience of easy monthly instalments with a built in postpaid plan. The postpaid plan will offer large bundles of data, unlimited calling and device protection package, allowing customers to enjoy the device to the fullest on India’s leading smartphone network.
The entire Online Store journey is digitally enabled, right from purchasing the device to instant financing and plan activations, all within a few clicks over a computer or a smartphone/tablet. The device will get delivered to the customer’s doorstep.
Airtel has partnered with Apple Inc., HDFC Bank, Clix Capital, Seynse Technologies, Brightstar Telecommunications and Vulcan Express to enable the digital experience on its Online Store....
