How to Answer the Most Common Hesitations to In-Store Financing

These days, the concept of a subscription is a comfortable one. From our music and movies to the food we eat and the clothes we wear, subscription services run the gamut – and a reasonable monthly payment for the products and services we need is an easy ask. 

So it’s no surprise that in-store consumer financing has become a popular option for retailers and consumers alike  especially with more lenders offering promotional rates that allow customers to pay little (or no) interest on their purchase – while getting the bike they’ve wanted for a low monthly payment.
