Big dividend for customer loyalty

Today’s shoppers want flexibility in their payment options, and they reward merchants who offer flexible payments. This can increase customer loyalty and lifetime value (LTV).

We heard similar feedback from an Audi service center . “When people see what we’ve been able to do for their car and then offer them a flexible way to pay, they think we’re heroes!” said Luan Nuriu, Service Director for Audi Coral Springs.
