Credit terminates when the last instalment has been paid.
The credit establishment fee is 150 euros and monthly billing charge 5 euros. The interest rate is a 3-month Euribor + 6.5 percentage points (6.15% July/2019). The effective interest rate for a 10,000-euro Special Consumer Credit with a 5-year credit period is 8.14% (July/2019).
The estimated total amount payable is €12,083.46 and the number of repayments is 60. This calculation is based on the assumption that the entire credit is drawn out at the same time and that the charges and fees remain the same throughout the loan term. The credit is extended by OP Card Company Plc.
You are annually entitled to a one-month grace period for your credit when you do not need to repay your credit and related interest. The grace period is the same month every year. The change takes effect in the next month's billing. The already-created bill may not be changed.
You can amortise your loan in addition to your normal monthly instalment. This extra repayment does not defer the next instalment or payment date. The extra repayment is not subject to a charge.
To make an extra repayment, you need the number of your loan which you can find in the Loans section. After that, go to "New payment" under the Daily banking services section and enter your loan's number in the "Payee's account or IBAN" field. Then proceed as instructed. The amount of your extra repayment is debited to your account on the same day.
