What Happened? Per a press release shared with Benzinga India, the financing options include a mix of no-cost and low-cost EMIs, with terms ranging from 3 to 30 months, allowing customers to pay for their purchases in instalments.
To access this option, customers need to provide their KYC information to an HDFC Bank representative at IKEA stores. The scheme will soon be available online as well.
Elena Pogosova, IKEA India’s Country Commercial Manager, expressed delight over the partnership. “We understand that buying furniture can be a significant investment, and our aim is to make it affordable and accessible to everyone,” Pogosova said. She views the collaboration as a step towards realizing IKEA’s goal of improving everyday life for many people.
