iStore is launching iDeals, the first official finance deal for iPhone; this will enable Nigrians to buy iPhones in a period of over 12 months. It provides a cost effective solution of interest free monthly installments, starting at just 9500 Naira a month.
The iDeals announcement follows the recent news reports that iPhone was launched officially for the first time in Nigeria through Apple Authorized Resellers. iStore is the first Apple Authorized Reseller to sell iPhone and to offer iDeals.
“We are thrilled to launch iDeals and offer a finance option for iPhone and give Nigerians the opportunity to purchase at an affordable monthly rate. iDeals is genuinely interest free – if you divide the cash price of iPhone by 12, this is the monthly payment you will make, there is no additional interest,” said Rutger-Jan van Spaandonk, iStore’s director.
iDeals is available for both iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s through a StanbicIBTC salary account and starts at just 9500 Naira per month for the iPhone 5C 16GB model, N11 300 per month for the iPhone 5s 16GB model, 13 000 Naira per month for the iPhone 5s 32GB model and N14 800 per month for the iPhone 5s 64 GB model. Additionally, those iStore customers that would prefer to do a straight cash purchase, will have the option of cash pricing as well.
All one needs to do is apply for iDeals at iStore, any StanbicIBTC branch nationwide or online at www.ideals.com.ng. Once the application form has been submitted, processed and approved, customers will be contacted to collect their iPhone. Furthermore, when purchasing an iPhone from iStore, customers can rest assured that they are buying from an Apple Authorized Reseller that is officially approved by Apple to sell iPhone and therefore offers local warranty support (one year) and services.
This is the first time, iPhone customers will have the convenience of local warranty in Nigeria from a partner approved by Apple.
iStore also provides knowledgeable advice and unrivaled after-sales support. iStore Ikeja Mall has been designed as a base for the Nigerian Apple community, where customers are encouraged to learn how to get the most out of their Apple products through hands-on product experiences and professional advice.
“We encourage iPhone enthusiasts to shop at iStore Ikeja Mall and take advantage of the iDeals offer, as well as the benefits of buying from an Apple Authorized Reseller. For the first time, iPhone customers will have the opportunity to take advantage of a monthly finance deal and local warranty support – all while having the additional value-adds of advice from Apple experts, excellent customer service, free training, setup and tech support”, said Van Spaandonk.
