Cofidis will send the debit request to the bank two days before the payment of the first installment. This will be charged on the first day of the month and after at least 25 days have elapsed from the date of shipment. In this way there will be no risk of finding yourself paying for an item that has not yet been received or perhaps that has gone out of stock or has been renounced.

What documents must be provided

During the registration procedure and the compilation of the request, a series of data will be requested and the uploading of photos of some documents. Specifically, you must have an identity card or passport issued by Italian authorities, a health card and an Italian IBAN. It is also necessary to have a demonstrable income. Each document can be uploaded in digital form: the photo taken via smartphone will suffice.

Interest rates applied

With the total amount due € 207.14 in practice, the TAN will be equal to 0% and the APR equal to 12.84%.
