Customer Financing

With Freedom To Ride, members of The Bike Cooperative easily add a financing option that makes “new bike day” (and new sales records) all the more attainable.
 

Brand-agnostic:

The Freedom to Ride private label credit card promotes your store, not just the brands you carry

Convenient for customers:

Cardholders spend $545 more (on average) than the average shopper, and 87% feel promotional financing makes large purchases more affordable

Mobile-Ready:

Our exclusive ‘Mobile Apply’ feature makes in-store application simple, secure, and straightforward

Powerful for sales:

Whether it means affording a better bike, saving cash-on-hand, or financing a “need it now” purchase – Freedom To Ride has become a powerful sales motivator for member shops across the country

“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.” 

– Steve Beheler, Spokes Etc.  – Vienna VA
