Kal Tire, one of Canada’s largest independent tire dealers, is launching a new private label credit card platform.
Through a mobile application process, customers at any of the company’s 200 retail locations can apply for a card in-store or online and receive approval within minutes. The company promises no paperwork, no scanning, and no mailing.
A company release says the ultimate objective is to increase overall sales and drive customer loyalty across locations by offering customers “a compelling financing solution” to make their purchases easier and more affordable.
The service was developed by Flexiti, one of the industry’s leading private label credit card providers for retailers.
“Kal Tire is committed to forging strategic partnerships that improve the customer experience in our retail locations,” said Greg Waring, vice president retail marketing at Kal Tire. “Providing payment options that cater to individual preferences is critical, and we are excited to partner with Flexiti to offer a payment solution that is fast and easy for our customers to obtain and use.”
Kal Tire locations can now offer a compelling financing solution to make their customers’ purchases more affordable with the help of flexible financing plans with 0% interest options. Through its award-winning mobile application process, customers can apply for Flexiti’s private label credit card online prior to visiting a Kal Tire location, and receive approval within minutes – no paperwork, no scanning or mailing. With minimal integration required into existing POS systems, Kal Tire will quickly scale across multiple locations and sales channels to offer financing to all of their retail customers, in-store and online.
Peter Kalen, founder and CEO of Flexiti welcome Kal Tire to the Flexiti Network, saying the company is looking forward to working closely with each of Kal Tire’s locations.
