Misconceptions about interest free credit

Retailers sometimes believe that interest free credit isn’t for them or their customers.

If you are the owner of a retail store, then you’re usually on the lookout for a new idea that will help you stand out from the crowd. Even within a relative niche market, in a digital age, it is likely that you will have many competitors, with new rivals cropping up every week.

The big question is, what can I do to stand out from the crowd? 

One answer to the most effective answers is to offer customers interest free credit. So, let’s look at several reasons why you might not consider interest free credit, and we’ll show you just how wrong they are.


It’s expensive (It isn’t)


Some retailers believe that interest free credit will eat into their bottom line, while there is a rate payable on orders, this is a flat rate agreed between us and your business when considering your current business model. Also, you must consider the effect that offering credit will have on your sales. Both the increase in average basket size and sales volumes, it’s easy to see how your bottom line will, in fact, get healthier.


It’s costly to get up and running (Nope)


We don’t charge for our API. We don’t charge for the extension. And we install everything for you. The total outgoing that you will have to pay to get up and running with DivideBuy is: £0. We often get asked how we can possibly afford to do that.


I don’t have enough traffic (You do)


Every retailer that we bring on board is done so in a Partnership. Providing you are willing to push credit on your site and extol the virtues of our system, we are more than happy to bring you on board.
