Like other BNPL services, myIOU will offer installment periods of 2, 3 and 6 months, customers will be required to perform a one-time registration before using the service and perform a e-KYC verification, which RM1000 of credit will be instantly approved upon successful registration.
Should you require more credit, myIOU lets you sign up for myIOU Credit+ that gives you up to RM10,000 of credit limit, making it a rather attractive option for those who only own a debit card but require to make installments on their purchases.
