Hi!
I've heard the first two - they mean the same.
If the cost is twenty pounds, you can pay (for example) five pounds a week for four weeks.

You can pay 'on an instalment plan' or 'on an instalment basis', but I've not heard just 'on instalment' - though I would understand it.

Some merchandise is for sale. It is available on easy installments too.


As Drag0n said, the first two mean the same.

Cheers!

Hi Shivavand!

Now that you mention it - "available on easy instalments" is a well-known phrase.

In Australia "on" is utilized: as in:ow
"Wow! How did you get that giant tv??"
" on installments, mate. "

Hi Romany - yes, you 'get it on instalments'.

But do you 'pay on instalments'. - or do you pay by instalments? - or 'pay in instalments'?

Definitely "on"! (At least in Queensland) - which is the only state I've ever had anything on installments.

(In case you haven't twigged by now: Queenslanders are not regarded as representing the apogee of Australian culture; nor the acme of the Australian language.)

Eh? Bit like the East End, then?
But there it would be "Wow! How'd you get that giant tv??"
"Fell off the back of a lorry, dinnit."

Yeah,pretty much.

Every state has a descriptive slogan on its car number plates. QLD has always been 'the Sunshine State. A few years back some bright spark decided to get rid of the stigma by changing it to 'The Smart State".

And oh! the shame of it when driving interstate! We lived on The Good Coast then, where the border between QLD and NSW runs through a town we had to go through almost every day...you could almost hear the guffaws and sniggers follow you down the road! It was very blush-making!

But it ensured I always drove with special care there: the delighted wit and giggles if one got pulled up for a traffic offence was unbearable...And that was just from the cops!

The slogan was changed.
