    Amazon UK is now offering a monthly pay-back option on items worth over £400 ($590), according to the company's website. The service, which is called Amazon Pay Monthly, is in partnership with Hitachi Capital, who also work with John Lewis on a similar scheme.

According to Trusted Reviews, the interest rate is set at 16.9%.
