AN INTEREST FREE CREDIT SERVICE FOR YOUR CUSTOMERS
Offering Interest Free Credit is a easy, fast and fuss free way to increase profitability but it's rare a small business can afford to offer it. We have a scheme where most members can have access to such an opportunity and get the customers spend upfront (the customer repaying a Finance House) . Spreading the cost of a purchase is common place, and consumers are tuned in to financing their purchases and customers who use finance to purchase will often spend more and buy what they really want resulting in increased transaction values and greater sales volumes. It is a easy, fast and fuss free way to increase profitability. More details HERE
