A: Mr. Wang, we haven't discussed the mode of payment. B: You know, Mr. Forster, this is a really large purchase. I'm afraid we can't pay off at one time. We have to pay by insurance. A: Do you mean you prefer a deferred payment? B: Yes, Mr. Forster. A: When do you start the payment then? B: We'll start our payment in half a year and the total amount will be paid off within 2 years by three installments. A: We can accept that, but you have to pay the interest. B: All right. A: Shall we sign the agreement now? B: OK, let's sign it.
