Why Offering Payment Plans Makes Sense for In-Home Sellers of Cleaning Systems

If you’re in in-home cleaning system sales, you are uniquely positioned to showcase (and sell) your offerings to your target. Customers see firsthand in their space how effective your product is. They see your systems eliminate every speck of dirt and can visualize how purchasing one of your machines can enhance their lives. Consumer financing makes that vision a reality for individuals eager to enjoy a clean, fresh, safe home and cleaning equipment that stands up to the challenge.

Offering payment plans makes owning these fabulous systems accessible to and affordable for your customers, and your business benefits from consumer financing and the flexibility it provides. Read to learn more about why offering payment plans makes sense for in-home sellers of cleaning systems and how you can implement financing options to help you grow your business starting today.

Expedite the Sales Process

When selling directly to the consumer in their home, you must eliminate as much friction as possible in the sales process. Offering payment plans reduces financial obstacles to purchase and shows customers that they can reasonably and realistically afford a new cleaning system.

Price-sensitive customers or those hesitant to make big-ticket purchases might need a better understanding of how low monthly payments with financing can help. Consumer financing is the perfect opportunity to help shoppers finish the sales process and sign the eContract. When you make payments affordable, predictable and automatic, you eliminate many of the purchase obstacles .

Consumer financing empowers your clients to buy right away. Customers don’t have to wait to talk with the bank or spend months saving for a cash payment before purchasing; payment plans give them the confidence and power to buy their new cleaning system without drastically impacting their monthly budget.

Plan Pricing Doesn’t Shock (or Scare Away) Your Buyers

The cost of a home cleaning system can deter potential buyers who would benefit from a quality product that makes cleaning and sanitizing a simple part of their routine. High-value items have high-value price tags, and an upfront payment isn’t feasible for some individuals. However, offering payment plans flips the script and makes these cleaning systems affordable through monthly installments. Sellers offer a low monthly payment amount to break down the pricing, so it’s not a shock or deterrent to the buyer.

Pricing objections and sticker shock present significant hurdles to in-home cleaning system sales. Simple, affordable payment plans show customers that they can realistically afford a quality cleaning system with little impact on their monthly spending.

In addition to reducing sticker shock and the fear associated with big-ticket purchases, consumer financing options make high-ticket cleaning systems – units with HEPA features and multi-year warranties – more affordable for a more extensive customer base, allowing more people to consider and purchase your product.

Low monthly payment plans make your products affordable and accessible to the greatest number of consumers, helping you increase your cleaning system sales.

Positive, consistent cash flow is a critical component of your business. You need liquid assets to run your business day to day and to plan for growth into the future. Offering consumer financing options through a trusted partner like United Consumer Financial Services allows you to offer the payment flexibility your customers want and need while earning the benefits of positive cash flow.

For businesses that handle their own accounts receivable, your business may need additional staff to process payments, handle collections, and might not receive full repayment because consumers could default on their loan.
