Industry Sector

We're trusted by specialist retailers across the UK to help them boost conversion, spend and customer loyalty in store and online. Our expertise in each sector and business means we build long -lasting relationships with our retailers. Our retail finance expertise is valued across sectors including:

Jewellery, engagement rings, watches

Jewellery and watches are often aspirational purchases of high value. In order to widen your market and make your product more affordable it can be a good option to offer your customers the opportunity to spread the cost of purchases and turn more browsers into buyers.

We've found that almost 60% of those who spread the cost of payments on jewellery and watches are aged between 21 – 35. Attracting this millenial market can be important for growth.

Our clients include Farer, 77 Diamonds and Paul James.

Furniture, beds, flooring, BBQs, hot tubs, equipment, bathrooms

We finance a variety of outdoor and indoor living products so your customers can spread the cost of their purchases over time. With any decorating project or garden revamp customers often look for aspirational purchases. Giving customers the option to pay monthly can really help.

We're proud of our ability to provide you with market and customer buying behaviour and analytics to help you drive results and make the most of key selling periods like when people look to upgrade household furniture after Christmas.

Archery, Skiing, Golf, Musical Instruments

Sport and leisure activities and hobbies can often be quite expensive if you're going to have all the right equipment. This means the demand for finance and the option to spread the cost of payments in monthly instalments in this sector is high.

With our customers reporting a higher ATV on finance than other payment methods it’s an attractive payment option.
