Improveasy, the glazing industry’s leading finance specialists have strengthened their range of accessible consumer finance solutions for installers with the launch of their new, game-changing ‘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.

“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,” comments Austin Barcley, Managing Director of Improveasy. “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 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.”

The ‘Buy Now Pay Later’ finance package is just one of a full range of flexible finance solutions offered by Improveasy including 0% interest-free finance and a range of APRs to suit any product. Working with Improveasy means glazing companies do not need to be FCA approved, instead becoming an Approved Representative (AR). This allows customers to start offering finance within just 10 days either using their own branding or under the Improveasy banner.

Improveasy has recently launched a full range of Business Finance solutions including Asset Finance, Hire Purchase and New-Start Company Loans designed to enable business growth at every level. With their new service, businesses across the industry can not only extend their proposition but fund investments such as new machinery, equipment and vehicles with ease.
