Using Spotii is simple! A customer goes to their favorite store, completes a simple digital sign-up process that requires users to simply enter their email, debit or credit card, and a mobile number. Users are approved instantly. Once approved, users can start to split their purchases over four cost-free installments anywhere Spotii is accepted. The service is always free for customers as Spotii earns revenue by charging the merchant.

Spotii undertakes planned co-marketing initiatives to provide tailored support to all merchants on the platform and help them increase their brand visibility.
