Offer finance on everything from pianos to pedal bikes
Our retail finance options cover a wide range of leisure sectors, including creative arts, sports, outdoor activities, health and fitness, hot tubs, and so much more. If your business operates in a different sector, please do get in touch as we might still be able to help.
Whether your customers are keen anglers or adventurous campers, finance should be a key consideration for outdoor clothing and equipment retailers. Attract lovers of the great outdoors to your store, rather than your competitors’.
We’re one of the UK’s leading providers of bike finance, too. Find out more about our partnership with the Bicycle Association.
The right sports gear can take your customers to the next level. Help them get there by giving them the option to pay over time for the best equipment they can afford. With retail finance, your customers can checkout with their new climbing equipment, golf clubs or bike accessories sooner.
We also offer golf membership finance. So, if you’re a golf club, why not offer a more affordable membership payment option to your players?
Health and fitness
Over half of consumers have bought home gym equipment since March 2020. But finding the money to buy the right kit upfront can be a challenge. With consumer finance, you can make it more affordable for customers to improve their health and wellbeing.
You may find that offering a way to spread the cost gives customers the perfect opportunity to invest in their health and fitness.
We offer retail finance for outdoor equipment for your customers’ homes including hot tubs, spas and saunas. According to BISHTA, one in ten households own a hot tub so there’s no time like the present to start offering a more flexible way to pay.
Offering credit can be a great way to make more significant home purchases more manageable – something we’re sure your customers will appreciate.
Musical instrument financing can drive traffic and footfall to your store. Customers may be able to buy the instrument they want sooner, or you might even tempt them to upgrade to a better model thanks to finance.
The opportunity to spread the cost of a new piano, guitar or drum kit will no doubt be music to their ears.
Setting up a new hobby or learning a life skill can be expensive. Whether your customers are into photography, filmmaking, handicraft, woodworking or anything in between, our retail finance options can make big purchases more manageable.
We also offer specialised retail finance for art galleries, giving you a great way to engage a new audience of art lovers.

About our finance solutions
Sports and leisure activities enhance the lives of consumers across the country. Help your customers buy the equipment they need by selecting from our flexible point of sale credit solutions.
Entice new customers and boost your sales by offering a way to spread the cost of a purchase over monthly repayments, with no additional interest to pay.
We’ll add a fixed rate of interest to your customers’ monthly payments, giving you a potentially cost-neutral finance option that makes offering finance more affordable.
Buy now pay later
Customers can buy what they want now and won’t begin making repayments until later. Plus, if they pay the full sum within the deferral period, they won’t be charged interest (though an early settlement fee may apply).
