There are two ways to collect the installment service charge of credit card:
One time charge for the first phase
Some bank installment fees will be collected in the first phase, and will not be refunded once collected. For example: Bank of China.
In the past, when applying for prepayment after installment, the handling fee that has not been generated after the previous installment will not be charged.
In recent years, after applying for prepayment, the remaining principal of each period and all remaining handling fees need to be paid at one time, and the collected handling fees of each period will not be refunded.
For example: China Construction Bank, China Merchants Bank, Bank of communications, Guangdong Development Bank, Minsheng Bank, Shanghai Pudong Development Bank, Huaxia Bank and Ping An Bank.

Contract spirit, trend needs
The agreement between the cardholder and the bank on installment is equivalent to signing a contract. If the cardholder repays in advance, the bank will consider it as a violation of the agreement and charge a handling fee or liquidated damages. In foreign countries, this rate will be higher.
