Pay for Your Phone PTA Approval on Installments: The state of Pakistan’s economy is at an all-time low. Importing a smartphone is outrageously expensive because of the depreciating value of our currency and the huge tax burden.
Mid-range phones cost over Rs. 100,000, while flagships cost Rs. 300,000 and more. Retail pricing is out of this world, and the need to pay for PTA clearances drives costs even higher.
Yet a recent improvement should make things more accessible for the general public.
Only certain cell phones are eligible for installment payments on PTA clearances through Bank Alfalah’s online marketplace Alfa Mall. These phones include the iPhone 13, all iPhone 14 series phones, and the Samsung Galaxy S22 and S22 Ultra.
These phones’ total PTA costs range from Rs. 130,000 to Rs. 190,000. However, they can be paid off with no interest for 3 to 6 months. You’re done by selecting an installment payment option, adding your CNIC number and phone’s IMEI code.
The PTA approval procedure may take 3–5 working days to complete. The merchant will call you to confirm your acceptance in addition to sending you an email.
