The Many Benefits of Consumer Financing Options
Running a business that stands out from the rest is challenging in any industry. While integrity, quality products and customer care are all essential elements to building a good reputation, they fall by the wayside when customers have difficulties paying for products or services upfront. However, there is one solution that allows a business to have it all: a consumer finance program.
With flexible payment options, consumers can pay for products and services and recommend businesses to friends and family. But a broader spectrum of customers is just one of the benefits a business can experience with consumer financing solutions on their side.
With consumer financing services from a company like UCFS, businesses no longer have to follow up on billing deadlines or experience cash flow complications due to funds arriving later than expected. Instead, after a sale is completed, UCFS promptly pays the business and handles the consumer’s repayment plan, including follow-ups on overdue payments and help with any financing questions they may have. The end result is greater financial stability for the business and friendly, professional services for customers, who can make necessary purchases without worrying about high upfront costs.
Having a quick and easy credit approval process is crucial to successfully closing deals. It adds professionalism to a business interaction and ensures that requested services can begin immediately, which is important for unexpected or emergency events, as well as planned expenses such as paying for a pet or medical equipment. UCFS has a high credit approval rate, meaning our merchants can offer consumer financing options to the widest margin of customers possible.
Co-Branded Materials & Training
Letting customers know about the full range of available payment options helps encourage them to complete a sale. UCFS offers brochures, web materials and other informational pieces for businesses to display and hand out as they discuss consumer financing options. These materials can be co-branded to represent the partnership between UCFS and the business it serves.
Because UCFS wants our merchant partners to succeed, we also provide training on the processes and services we offer. Sales associates will then feel confident as they walk customers through the UCFS consumer financing model. However, if any questions arise, UCFS is more than happy to supply the answers and makes a point to be available to merchants from 8am – 2am, which includes traditional business hours.
Simple Merchant & Consumer Portals
Keeping track of customer accounts and payment histories can be complicated and winds up pulling valuable time away from what’s really important: developing great products and offering quality services. With UCFS’s easy-to-use merchant portal, businesses can monitor the progress of accounts. Meanwhile, with the consumer portal, customers can contact UCFS and make their low, fixed monthly payments. Auto-pay options are also available when the customer signs their plan contract. UCFS is a consumer financing solution that works for everyone.
