Auto-Debit
  • BillEase Auto-debit is a payment option offered by BillEase in partnership with Alipay+ merchants. By authorizing a one-time account linking of your BillEase account with the merchant, the merchant can debit an amount from your available credit limit without requiring further confirmation such as One-time Password (OTP) or biometrics security.

    This payment option can be used for various payment scenarios including one-time and recurring payments.


  • The Auto-debit option is available through select Alipay+ merchants only.

    On the merchant site, select the Auto-debit => BillEase option in the payment method settings, then you will be redirected to BillEase to authorize the account linking.

    If you no longer intend to authorize a merchant for future transactions, click on Unlink in the details page.

    If you don't want to accept a charged transaction, contact the merchant and request for a refund.

Pay with Grace
  • Pay with Grace is a flexible payment plan that offers a 3 or 6-month grace period with 0% interest. This allows customers to pay off their purchases within the grace period without incurring any interest charges. Currently, it's offered by default to select online and offline BillEase merchants.

  • The installment amounts remain the same to ensure that your payments are evenly distributed across the total payment period. During the 0% interest grace period, you are not being charged any interest. The consistent installment amounts provide a clear and manageable payment structure, making it easier for you to plan your finances. No interest is applied to the payments made within the grace period.

  • After the initial grace period (e.g., 3 months), the interest rate is 3.49% for the remaining payment period.

  • The minimum purchase amount is PHP 2,000, and the maximum is PHP 100,000.

  • The total payment period can range from 9 to 12 months, including the initial 3 or 6-month grace period.

  • Yes, you can make scheduled installment payments or pay off the entire balance before the grace period ends, all while enjoying 0% interest.

  • If you need more flexibility, you can follow the regular payment schedule and complete your installments over the 9 to 12-month period.

  • Once the grace period ends, you must follow the scheduled installment payments until the end of the 9 to 12-month period. You can also choose to pay all your installments with an interest rate.

  • No, there is no penalty for early payment. You can complete your entire installment within the grace period without any additional fees.

  • Once you have selected the Pay with Grace plan, you cannot change the payment terms. However, you can choose to pay off the entire balance early within the grace period without incurring any interest.
