What is the Process to Buy Gold Online with an SBI Credit Card?
Individuals in our country consider Gold to be a very precious asset. That’s why there are so many people who buy gold jewellery online so that it could be useful in their difficult times. With adequate gold in your hand, you can get upto 90% of its total value as the loan amount with the Gold Loan facility. But before that, we need to understand the process of buying the gold online with an SBI credit card.
There are so many platforms available online from where you can buy gold jewellery without any problem. Some of them are Tanishq, PC Jewellers, Kalyan Jewelers, Blue Stone, Malabar Jewellers, etc. A credit card can be highly useful to you in those times when you want to purchase some gold ornaments from one of such platforms but don’t have sufficient cash in hand. In such situations, you can make the full payment (within your credit limit) from your credit card and repay the amount later via Equated Monthly Installments (EMI).
You must keep this fact in mind that each credit card has a predefined credit limit and you cannot purchase anything above the existing limit of your card. Suppose that the overall credit limit is INR 80,000 and you have already made a purchase of INR 20,000 on buying the TV you liked. Then, your existing credit limit is INR 60,000.
When you opt for the EMI facility with your credit card, you will need to pay a certain interest amount on the used amount with a credit card. The interest rate on the SBI credit card would be around 14% to 15% per annum. But if you decide to revolve the credit amount without EMI, the interest rate will be around 3.35% per month (40.2% per annum) which could be quite costly for you.
To buy the Gold online with your SBI credit card on EMI, you will need to pay the full amount (within your credit limit) on the online website with your card. After paying the full amount, you can convert this transaction into easy monthly installments of a fixed tenure of 6/ 9/ 12 or more months. This can be done by yourself via Netbanking, Mobile Banking, or by calling to the SBI customer care. SBI will charge you a one-time processing fee for availing this EMI facility.
You can choose the tenure according to your preference. This EMI will be a part of your principal and interest amount as we told that lenders charge interest on the transaction made with a credit card.
How Much EMI Would You Need to Pay on Buying Gold with a Credit Card?
We are providing you an example with which you would get an idea about the EMI amount payable on buying gold online with your SBI credit card. Suppose you purchased a golden ring worth INR 70,000 with your SBI credit card. Now, you want to convert this transaction into easy installments of 9 months. The interest rate charged on the transaction is 14% per annum. So, what will be your EMI amount? To know the answer, you can look at the below table.
|Total Amount||INR 70,000|
|Rate of interest||14% per annum|
|EMI Amount||INR 8,239|
|Interest Outgo||INR 4,146|

So, you can see that you will need to pay INR 8,239 per month for 9 months to repay the amount. The interest outgo will be INR 4,146 during this period.
