How does Spot by Douugh work?
With Spot by Douugh, you can access up to $2,000 when you need it. The amount you borrow is then repaid over 4 weekly instalments. Each of those repayments comes with a $9.99 fee.
Unlike other buy now, pay later services where you might also split repayments over 4 weeks, the cash you borrow from Spot gets deposited directly into your bank account. This means you have much more flexibility over where you're spending your money.
You can have multiple 'Spots' at any time, with an overall limit of your approved amount (up to $2,000).
You can then easily manage your account at any time and have complete oversight on where your funds stand through the Douugh app.
What can Spot be used for?
Because the cash goes directly into your bank account when you need it, you can use Spot for anything.
The approved funds are sent straight to your bank account for you to use on any worthwhile purchase, including unexpected bills and expenses.
