Contingent premium option

An option for which no upfront payment of premium is required and, therefore, the buyer pays no premium unless the option is exercised. As a rule of thumb, the premium eventually paid is equal to the premium payable on a normal option, divided by the option delta. Hence, the price increases dramatically for out-of-the-money options.
