BOCA RATON, Fla., Nov. 16, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FlexShopper, Inc. (FPAY) (“FlexShopper”), a leading national online lease-to-own (“LTO”) retailer and LTO payment solution provider, today announced the launch of a new 10-store pilot of our LTO “save the sale” program with a tire and auto service retailer with a 400-store footprint across multiple states.
Brad Bernstein, CEO, stated, “We are pleased to announce this pilot with another large retailer, which points to the merits of our mobile LTO technology that provides a quick and seamless process for retailers and consumers to transact on an LTO basis. Today’s retailers are looking for innovative ways to grow their business without the headache of integration or additional work for their employees. We meet these needs with our mobile application that enables consumers to apply for a spending limit, sign a lease and pay the retailer instantly at the point of sale. This process is very compelling, with no risk and significant upside to retailers who increase their sales with our LTO technology. Coming off our 3rd quarter, 730-store rollout with another retailer, we are excited about the retail momentum we are experiencing and look forward to making this pilot a great success.”
