It is already challenging for Pakistanis to purchase smartphones due to rising smartphone and dollar prices, and the users’ suffering has worsened by PTA’s absurd charge. It is offering smartphone customers some respite by allowing them to pay the PTA certification tax over time.
With mid-range phones costing more than Rs 100,000 and flagships costing more than Rs 300,000 and more, retail pricing is out of control, and having to pay for PTA approvals raises the stakes even further.
The public should now have easier access thanks to a recent enhancement. Bank Alfalah‘s e-marketplace, Alfa Mall, now allows instalment payments based on PTA clearances, but only for certain cellphones. These phones include the Samsung Galaxy S22 and S22 Ultra, the iPhone 13, and iPhone 14 series.
These phones’ total PTA charges range from Rs. 130,000 to Rs. 190,000. However, they may be paid off with a 0% markup in 3 to 6 months. Choose an instalment payment schedule, enter your CNIC number and phone’s IMEI code, and you’re done.
The PTA clearance process may take 3-5 business days, and it should be noted. Also, the shop will call you to confirm your acceptance.
