UK-based checkout finance platform provider Divido has announced a partnership with Novuna Consumer Finance, one of the UK’s leading point of sale finance providers, to enable merchants to provide competitive whitelabeled finance to their customers.
The partnership combines Novuna Consumer Finance’s 40+ years of retail finance expertise with Divido’s award-winning technology.
Merchants will benefit from Divido’s seamless checkout finance journeys for instore and online purchases, now with attractive finance options from Novuna, which can be scaled worldwide by easily adding additional lenders to support new countries.
Merchants using the Divido checkout finance platform will strengthen their brand and increase conversion rates by having their own whitelabelled solution. Divido’s journeys achieve conversion rates of up to 76% with support instore and online.
The partnership will allow Divido merchants to benefit from greater choice and flexibility when choosing a lender to provide finance options. Divido will leverage Novuna Consumer Finance’s 40+ years of experience and deep expertise in a wide cross-section of retail verticals to offer competitive lending rates and higher rates of acceptance through their platform.
Divido forecasts that merchants working with Novuna Consumer Finance through their whitelabel platform will benefit from increased volume of sales through retail finance, higher average basket sizes, and greater rates of repeat business. The partnership will allow Divido to offer their retail finance platform to a wider network of large retailers.
