Frequently asked questions for Smartscribe Subscription Plan
1. What is the offer all about? What is the intent here?
• It is a new way of on-boarding and welcoming you to the world of VERO, with an offer for a machine at very low price. This offer comes with 12 month contract: each month you will pay a fee. Your monthly fee becomes credit of the same amount that you can use to buy whatever VERO product you want and build your own coffee experience. You can use it to buy VERO Coffees, delicious treats, cups or other accessories (cannot use VERO Credits to buy coffee machine or milk frother). You can use your credit whenever you want. It is cumulative (you don’t need to spend it all every month) actually, you can use it even 12 months after the expiration of your 12 month contract.
2. For an Infuso, I need to pay 12 x Rs. 1499 = Rs.17,988! That is way more than the RRP of the machine (Rs.12,999) – Why is that?
• In fact, the machine actually comes to you at just Re.1. Do not forget that you can use the full amount that you pay every month to buy coffee, delicious treats, cups or other accessories (cannot use VERO Credits to buy coffee machine or milk frother), in a very flexible manner. To sum up, the Rs.17,988 will be for you to use over the next 2 years (12 months + 12 months validity) for all your coffee moments. So in a year you get goods worth Rs. 30,987 by paying only Rs.17,988.
3. For an Infuso and a Milk Frother, I need to pay 12 x Rs. 1999 = Rs.23,988! That is way more than the RRP of the machine (Rs.12,999+ Rs.3,999= Rs.16,998) – Why is that?
• In fact, machine and the frother actually comes to you at Re.1. Do not forgot that you can use the full amount that you pay every month to buy coffee, delicious treats, cups or other accessories (cannot use VERO Credits to buy coffee machine or milk frother), in a very flexible manner. To sum up, the Rs.23,988 will be for you to use over the next 2 years (12 months + 12 months validity) for all your coffee moments. So in a year you get goods worth Rs.40,986 by paying only Rs.23,988.
