You’ll need to get your credit score verified by a financial institution.

You’ll need a loan to cover your monthly payments.

And, if you want to pay off your loans, you’ll need another loan to get that extra cash. 

If you’re ready to get into easy-to-pay investing, here’s what you need to know. 

How easy-purchase financing worksFidelity’s EasyPay® credit line is a loan from the bank that’s secured by your Fidelity savings and other assets.

If you make at least $250,000 in the first year of your account, your bank can guarantee your account and lend you money.

You can apply for your EasyPay credit line by: submitting a payment request online and paying a minimum of $10 per month; paying a $2 application fee to the fund’s online account manager; or, submitted a $10 application fee fee. 

Once you apply, your loan will be guaranteed for a period of up to 12 months.

You don’t have to repay the loan within 12 months of being approved.

You will pay back the interest on the loan, up to your annual maximum of 5% per month. 

There’s a maximum of $1,000 that you can earn in EasyPay for each account.
