Bus/Financial - Retail / Financing hypermarket purchase
Spanish term or phrase: Sólo se podrá financiar en el mismo ticket...
Hi there. I need help with the following phrase:

Sólo se podrá financiar en el mismo ticket de compra aquellos artículos que puedan ser abonados en la misma caja.

This comes from the brief version of the terms and conditions which appears in small print at the bottom of the page in the offers leaflet of a well-known hypermarket. The leaflet contains offers on many items, but this comes from the pages of larger white goods and electronics: in this case, from a page of offers on HD tvs.

There isn't much context: the small print is a brief explanation of the main conditions (see below). I do not quite understand what they are trying to say with the above sentence, and would be grateful for your help. UK Eng. Thanks in advance.

Intereses subvencionados por [name of hypermarket]. Financiación sujeto a la aprobación de [financial services, name of hypermarket]. Sólo se podrá financiar en el mismo ticket de compra aquellos artículos que puedan ser abonados en la misma caja. El pago de las cuotas se realizará al día 5 de cada mes.

I think the phrase is nothing more than redundant in the source language.

Sorry I bothered!

Notes to answerer
Asker: Sorry to ask, but I understand the verbs themselves, but I do not understand the sense of the phrase, as I comment above... I understand that it means only certain items are eligible for financing, but I do not understand the phrase as a whole. Thanks anyway, but this does not help me so much!
