Retail Finance

Retail finance solutions for interest free, buy now pay later, and interest bearing products

Aryza embedded finance solutions reflect the brand of our clients, so they can offer their customers financial products without disrupting the existing buyer journey. For example, this could be an e-commerce merchant providing insurance, a furniture store that offers in house offers through point of sale software or a department store’s branded credit card.

Embracing digital automation

Retail credit has undergone a significant transformation through the introduction of new credit products and technology at the point of sale, whether in-store or online. The need to quickly adapt to market changing conditions requires agility around the finance proposition, lending partners and channels to market.

The leveraging of embedded credit is a proven method available to retailers to increase their sales volumes by offering appropriate and attractive finance options to qualifying customers; it can even be argued that customers now expect such payment terms to be offered as ‘the norm’ at time of payment fulfilment.

This means more than ever there is a need for compliant, scalable, efficient and agile platforms to enable retailers to embrace and benefit from advances in financial product offerings and technology transformation.

The Aryza Multi-Lender Credit Placement Solution for Retailers

At Aryza, our retail finance software has been developed in partnership with some of the biggest names in lending – and our multi-lender, embedded credit broker solution which has been implemented with a category-leading retailer in the UK.

The UK market is defined by the competing forces of traditional retail credit providers (Hitachi Credit, Creation, Barclays Partner Finance etc) competing with global tech giants like Klarna and Affirm, but there is also a wide range of smaller specialists who are thriving in carefully targeted markets. Aryza is positioned in this ‘multi-lending’ space as a specialist retail lending origination’s software partner.

We provide this highly specialised niche with a real focus on:

Multi-Lender access
A single streamlined application process and digital application form designed to connect to a multiple lender panel.

Creation Placement Optimisation
Based on your configuration preferences, vary allocation rules by lender and retailer business objectives.

Whether you are selling Furniture, Kitchens, Bathrooms, Jewellery and Watches, Domestic Appliances, Health and Wellness, or even for Dentists and Laser Eye Surgery; the model can be applied to any high value transactional model.

What is embedded finance?

Embedded finance is the term often used to describe when financial services are offered seamlessly to consumers through non-financial products or services – also referred to as embedded credit and embedded payments. Embedded credit refers to offering credit, such as Buy Now Pay Later, to allow consumers to delay payments at the point of checkout. Embedded payments refers to the ability to complete a payment transaction without the need to be redirected to a financial services organisation.

Which sectors are suitable for retail finance?

Retail finance is becoming increasingly popular and customers have now come to expect that retailers will offer alternative payment methods. Not only this, but customers expect a quick, seamless experience when applying for credit in order to be able to purchase a product. Businesses can meet this demand with retail finance software from Aryza.

Our retail lending software supports the entire loan origination process, with one centralised platform where all customer applications are submitted and processed. Automated financial assessments and decision making minimises effort and costs, creating a reliable and scalable solution to retail credit.

How does retail finance software help?

Typically, retail finance loans are set up between the loan provider and the customer, so there are few downsides for the retailer, if any. They don’t need to take on the task of collecting money back from customers. On the other hand, there are many benefits, the main one being a boost in sales through increased accessibility of products to customers. Other benefits include:

• Reduction in cart abandonment

• Improved customer satisfaction

• Improved customer retention

Which sectors are suitable for retail finance?

Retail finance is not reserved for any particular niche, and is suited to most sectors. This applies to both high street and ecommerce retail businesses. Here are some key sectors who can benefit from offering retail finance options:

• Fashion

• Home Furniture

• Sports and Leisure

• Consumer Electronics

• Jewellery

• Car Extras and Repairs

• Healthcare

• Home Improvement

• Electronics and Appliances

• Training and Education

• Lifestyle

• Arts and Music

What is retail finance?

Retail finance is a type of loan which allows shoppers to spread the cost of their purchases if they can’t afford to pay for it all in one go. This typically comes in the form of interest-free credit, interest-bearing loans or ‘buy now pay later’ schemes, however other variations exist as well.

Retail finance enables more customers to be able to buy products, as they don’t need to wait until payday to make the purchase. It might sound like this could be costly for the business, but research has shown that the gains from increased sales more than outweighs the initial upfront cost of offering finance options.

Aryza Loan Origination is a centralised platform which handles loan applications through an entirely digital, easily navigable customer journey. It’s a cost effective solution for lenders to overcome the many challenges that the origination process can present. Businesses can assess and approve loans much faster with loan origination software.

Is embedded finance the future of retail lending?

Embedded finance is simply how non-financial companies embed financial services solutions into their existing offerings. Aryza solutions are designed to reflect the brand of our clients so they can offer their customers financial products without disrupting the existing buyer journey. This is generally call an ’embedded finance solution’.

Examples of this could be an e-commerce merchant providing insurance, a furniture store that offers in house offers through point of sale software or a department store’s branded credit card.
