Visa, Royal Bank of Canada, Installments, Equal Payments, Financing Solution, BNPL, Credit Management, Installment Financing, Credit Card Installments, CanadaVisa and Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) announced their new collaboration to provide eligible RBC personal credit cardholders with the convenient option of converting a qualifying purchase into smaller, equal payments made over a defined period when shopping at participating merchants across Canada – both in-store and online.

RBC is the latest issuer to support Installments enabled by Visa following the solution launch in Canada last year. Eligible RBC personal Visa credit cardholders can conveniently leverage their existing credit without submitting new loan applications, completing credit checks, or downloading a new app.

“Our collaboration with RBC is about enabling eligible Canadian cardholders and participating merchants to take part in the growing installments trend, delivering a more flexible payment experience within the familiarity of a Visa transaction process,” said Brian Weiner, Vice-President and head of product and digital, Visa Canada.

This announcement responds to a growing consumer demand for more convenient and affordable financing solutions such as installment payments and Buy Now Pay Later (BNPL) options in Canada and globally. BNPL represents a growing portion of the global payments market, accounting for over CAD 1.7 trillion of global payment volume. Visa research showed that up to half of all global consumers expressed interest in installment financing offered by their existing credit card issuer.

“At RBC, we’re committed to reimagining the everyday banking and payment experience for Canadians and merchants to meet their evolving needs,” said Leah Napier, Vice President of Retail Cards at RBC. “Our collaboration with Visa to enable credit card installments at the point of purchase is one of the many ways that we’re delivering on that promise. Together, we’re excited to offer consumers another payment option that provides greater flexibility, affordability and simplicity when they shop – all seamlessly integrated within their existing RBC credit card product.”

Royal Bank of Canada is a global financial institution with a purpose-driven, principles-led approach to delivering leading performance. As Canada’s biggest bank and one of the largest in the world, based on market capitalisation, they have a diversified business model with a focus on innovation and providing exceptional experiences to our 17 million clients in Canada, the U.S., and 27 other countries.
