Charges and fees
Q: What are the additional fees that I should be aware of?
A: Please refer to the table below:
Q: How is my repayment amount calculated?
A: The loan repayment will be amortised over the entire loan tenure with a fixed monthly instalment. The interest will be calculated on a reducing balance basis. E.g. Assuming you signed up for a S$10k facility with an interest rate of 2% per month for a tenure of 3 months. Please refer to the Repayment Calculation below:
For the first monthly instalment, the interest component is calculated based on the Total Loan Amount (S$10K), Interest = S$10K * 2% = $200. In the subsequent instalments, the interest component will be decreasing as the principal is being paid up during each monthly instalment.
Q: How do I make my repayment?
A: To ensure the repayment process is hassle free, we will offset your bi-weekly (twice-a-week) GrabFood Merchant Payment. In the event that there’re more than one outlet registered under your entity, we will offset payments from all outlets.
S$120 repayment due as of month-end,
6 cycles of GrabFood Merchant Payment in the month,
the offset for each payment cycle is S$20.
Condition: the exact offset amount for each cycle and each outlet account may vary from time to time.
Any remaining amount not offset via GrabFood Merchant Payment before month-end will be collected via direct debit of Merchant’s bank account.
