What is Consumer Financing?

Consumer Financing

Have you ever had trouble closing a sale due to a customer not being able to afford a project? Customers are not always ready to invest the money into their home improvements, and these investments might seem too far out of reach. This is when consumer financing comes into play. Consumer financing provides customers with the option to use a payment plan in order to pay for a high-ticket service or product. Typically these payment plans require a customer to submit a lengthy application and wait to be approved before they can receive any services. Until now, the idea of consumer financing seemed like an unlikely option for contractors.
