Novuna Consumer Finance, one of the UK’s leading retail point of sale providers, has partnered with home improvement retailer, Wickes to provide its credit offer for its Bespoke kitchen and bathroom ranges in-store. The collaboration provides customers with a range of affordable and flexible finance options to help turn their dream kitchen or bathroom into a reality.

As part of the new partnership, customers choosing products and installation services from the Wickes Bespoke kitchen and bathroom range will be able to spread the cost via a choice of interest-free and interest-bearing credit options. Finance will be available to customers selecting from the Wickes Bespoke ranges to create their dream kitchens and bathrooms across over 230 stores nationwide.

The point-of-sale finance integration will see Wickes benefit from Novuna’s proprietary soft search credit functionality, providing 100% credit confidence for customers without impacting their credit score.

Wickes will also use Novuna’s unique tailoring functionality which offers greater flexibility over terms, deposits and loan amounts to create repayment options for customers to suit their individual circumstances, implementing affordable payment options whilst reducing the number of declined applications.

Brian Flesk, Head of Retail at Novuna Consumer Finance said: “We’re delighted to be working with Wickes again as one of our retail partners.

“Through our partnership, Wickes will benefit not only from our vast experience in this sector but also our unique package of smart, bespoke credit offerings with unrivalled tailoring options, making it easier for customers to spread the cost of home improvement projects.”

Paul Bangs, Category Director for Kitchens and Bathrooms at Wickes, added: “We're excited to collaborate with Novuna Consumer Finance to enhance our total kitchen and bathroom proposition.

This partnership allows us to offer a range of flexible finance options, ensuring that our customers can bring their dream kitchens and bathrooms to life without compromising on affordability or convenience.”
