Financing Customer Orders

    I am looking for some advice on providing financing to my clients.  The goal is to take a lump sum order of $6,000+ and financing it into monthly payments.  This will make the purchase more palatable and hopefully attract more buyers.   

    I am in the advertising industry.  The product is a mobile advertising campaign.

    Thank you in advance,
    Chris

    Ron,
    Thank you for the recommendation.  iBill seems like a great match for what I`m looking for.  I did some digging around and found a few reviews that were not positive, albeit old reviews:

    Can you shed any light on this, hopefully things have improved over the years.  I`ll still be looking into this.

    Thanks,
    Chris

    Hi there,

    I can answer this first hand. I use ibill to manage all my lawn care customers and I run my financing thought them. What is cool about them, is that they can run credit on all your applications so you can extend credit to people with a good credit history. They also report all the payments your customer make to the big 3 creditors EQ TU and EX.

    I noticed the same thing before I signed up, and found out that iBill was in Florda back in 97 and after being sold in 02 i think the new owner took it into the ground around 2006. That owner if i remember was penthouse.

    Jonas took it over in 06 and started to rebrand it. I got to talk to him at a tradeshow in Bosie in Feb 09. This is what he told me and I noticed it is online somewhere.

    P.S They have had as much as 40,000 of my money at any one time and I get it when I request the ACH everytime with no issues.

    Hope this helps.
