Why Retail Finance

30% of UK buyers are using consumer credit to spread the cost of purchases – so there’s never been a better time to make retail finance work for your business.

What is retail finance?

Retail finance (or point of sale finance) is a payment option which lets consumers spread the cost of a purchase over a series of smaller instalments.

Retail finance is an excellent way to widen your customer base, without impacting your profit margins. The finance provider (Zopa) pays you, the merchant, for the order upfront, then handles collecting repayments from the customer directly – making it an ideal solution for all parties involved.

Find out more about how POS finance works in the short guide below.

What’s the best finance option for my business?

Zopa's retail finance solution, DivideBuy, offers a range of interest bearing and interest free credit products to choose from.

Our finance products range from 3 to 60 months, depending on your customer and business needs. You can set minimum spend thresholds for longer terms, increasing average order values and protecting your margins.
