goeasy launches POS financing platform with Sears Canada

goeasy has launched a point-of-sale financing platform with Sears Canada. The initial rollout takes place in 168 locations across the country with 30 Quebec stores set to be added early in 2017.

Depending on the consumer credit profile either Sears Canada or goeasy’s easyfinancial will extend credit. easyfinancial’s POS financing platform provides the back-end support system and loan servicing to simplify the transaction. It is supported by goeasy’s indirect tablet application allowing for a single credit application and decision within minutes.

“Core to our business is providing financing solutions for all customers regardless of their credit situation,” goeasy EVP and COO Jason Mullins said. “Being able to support that with an in store experience that is fast, simple and transparent was critical to the execution of this program.

“We are thrilled to be joining with Sears Canada to help provide their customers, regardless of their credit profile, with an integrated customer experience that removes any possible friction from retail financing. This transformational solution is the first of its kind in Canadian retail and we are excited to be at the forefront of this technology.”
