What is Atome?

Founded in 2016, Atome is a Singapore-based company that is on a mission to help shoppers in Singapore and Malaysia better manage their finances, while not missing out on what they want.

Atome lets shoppers split their shopping baskets into three equal zero-interest instalments, which are paid monthly. This is done by either scanning a QR code in-store or by choosing Atome during online checkout. Shoppers can download the Atome mobile app, to explore which retails are available, and help manage their payments and account.

If you’re looking to book flights, Atome makes it much more affordable. Book your flights through Alternative Airlines to split the cost with Atome. You’ll only need to pay the first 30% today, with the remainder paid in two equal instalments, each paid a month apart.

Atome and Flights

Paying for flights with Atome is simple. Use the search bar at the top of the page to find the flights you’re after, then click ‘Atome’ at checkout. There’s no need to pay the full cost of your flights today, as Atome will break the cost into more manageable chunks.

Do I need a credit card?

arrow down

Are there any hidden fees?

arrow down

No, there are no hidden fees. You’ll only pay the price you see at checkout - that’s the total cost of your basket, without any additional interest charged. That’s right, no interest, no fees. The only additional cost that you might incur is a fixed late repayment fee if you are late with a payment, but that is a one-time fee and never snowballs. If you make your payments on time, the only cost you’ll pay is the cost of your basket.

How do I know how much I need to pay and when?

arrow down

Atome will split the total sum of your checkout basket into 3 equal installments which are automatically charged to the debit or credit card linked to your Atome account. This means that you won’t have to worry about missing a payment, as long as you ensure you have money in your bank account for when it is needed. Atome will send a copy of your payment schedule by email, so you know when you’ll need to have the money in your account; you can even pay in advance if you want to. You can also download the Atome app, to help manage your account.
