Apr 14, 2021

Anyone who owns a car knows that purchasing a new set of tires can be quite an expensive ordeal. And it is not just the cost of tires that is overwhelming but the additional services you may need to ensure your vehicle is safe and roadworthy such as alignment, balancing, and extended warranties. These expenses can add up quickly, which can leave a dent in your wallet that may take some time to recover. But it isn’t just the cost that weighs on the consumer’s shoulders, it is also the entire buying experience. With the COVID-19 pandemic, many are still reluctant to visit physical retail stores, which to be frank is becoming more of a hassle than purchasing online with or without the threat of COVID-19. Consumers are looking for affordability and convenience. A way to purchase tires for their cars from the comfort of their homes without breaking the bank either.

ChargeAfter’s decisioning engine technology presents your customers with multiple personalized point of sale financing options that are suited to their needs.

Why Choose ChargeAfter’s Point Of Sale Technology?

For customers and everything else in the world, everything comes down to affordability. And just because it is affordable for one person, it doesn’t mean that it is affordable for the next. The key to ChargeAfter’s Buy Now, Pay Later financing is flexibility. Giving customers a wide range of financing that works for their pocket and not someone else’s. So how is this achieved? With the multi-lender financing network also known as the waterfall financing method. And this is how it works: Once the financing application is submitted by the customer, it is then checked against prime lenders for approval. If the applicant is denied at the first stage, the application moves down to near-prime or “second look” options for approval. If the applicant is still denied, the application is then shared with sub-prime lenders (“lease to own”) for approval. Multiple lenders are checked in the waterfall so various rates and terms are available to shoppers once approved. 

Having access to the diverse network of lenders and various rates and terms means that approval rates are higher. Higher approval rates mean more sales. ChargeAfter’s technology enables tire retailers to boost their customer rating by up to 85% whereas other BNPL service providers who offer single lender services only have an approval rate of around 60 to 65%. This means that just by using ChargeAfter’s POS financing technology merchants can get up to 20% more Buy Now Pay Later tire sales than with any other BNPL service provider.
