EXCLUSIVE CO-OP PROGRAM
With the Freedom to Ride consumer financing program, members of The Bike Cooperative equip their store associates with a payment option proven to improve sales & put more customers on the bike they really want.
Freedom to Ride is good for everyone: your shop and your customers. Not only does your customer get the flexibility to pay over-time (with great promotional rates), but Freedom To Ride is brand agnostic and exclusive to TBC members. This gives co-op members the power to offer private label financing that empowers your sales associates and promotes your store, not just the brands you carry…
With great 12 month financing rates (and even better buydown specials) and the added convenience of mobile applications that instantly boost approval-rate, Freedom to Ride has proven a winner for members across the country. Ready to sell more with in-store financing for bikes?
On the road or in the woods – everyone’s wished they had an extra gear from time to time. For bike retailers, excellent consumer financing is the tool that can keep sales moving. With The Bike Cooperative, it’s even better.
IBD’s are experiencing a massive shift. But local expertise and individual care are advantages that can’t be beat by the big-box stores or internet competition. When combined with financing flexibility that makes “new bike day” all the more attainable – TBC members have the extra gear to keep sales numbers climbing.
“Financing is an incredibly valuable tool for increasing sales. We find that given the opportunity to finance, a customer is going to spend twice as much on a bike purchase and be even happier with their buying decision.”
“The Freedom to Ride Financing program through The Bike Cooperative is a great way to increase sales and gain satisfied return customers. Unlike the Brand financing offered, customers get a card that is specific to our store, and the rates are lower. This program is simple to use for our busy staff and helps us obtain sales we would normally not get without the financing.”
With more retail competition than ever before, bike dealers across the country are using Freedom to Ride to level the playing field.
