Finance solutions strengthened

Improveasy has launched a new buy now pay later finance option.

Open to installers of all sizes, buy now pay later enables installers and glazing companies to offer flexible finance directly to the customer at the point of sale. With optional consumer deposits and 12-month payment-free periods, buy now pay later is designed to not only meet the changing buying habits of today’s consumers but to level the playing field between installers and their national competition.

Austin Barcley, managing director of Improveasy, said: “For many years the shop local revolution has lagged behind in the glazing industry simply because installers couldn’t provide the flexible payment options that the big national brands can offer and that consumers ultimately desire. We are delighted to announce the launch of buy now pay later, which will undoubtedly help installers not only increase their orders but increase the value of their projects and deliver a more attractive proposition to their customers.

“When you consider that 45% of homeowners are more likely to purchase if they were able to buy now and pay later, it’s an incredibly valuable opportunity that installers cannot afford to miss. 83% of consumers say retailers offering flexible ways to pay influenced their decision to purchase, so it’s a really powerful, transformational tool which can help businesses grow.”
