What we do
LayUp is a B2B2C Fintech alternative online payment plan payment solution company that facilitates any online store the opportunity to convert a sale that previously would have been lost. LayUp helps to increase conversion rates, increase the purchase size and extends the customer lifetime value by providing a more sustainable way for consumers to purchase goods or services.
The LayUp API provides an IT light software integration that allows merchants the ability to offer end-customers a new and improved way to buy goods and services using lay-by online.
The LayUp API easily integrates with merchants and sits as a button on their site at checkout. When the user is ready to purchase, they have the option to “Pay with LayUp” and then begin paying incremental amounts each month at NO interest.
The user always will pay in full before receiving the goods or services and they have the flexibility to cancel at any time and receive their funds back less the non-refundable deposit.
LayUp has fully automated the recurring billing process which allows the user to sit back and relax as they reach closer to their goal each month. The user has the freedom to pay overtime on their terms and not be forced into using credit or going into unwarranted debt.
The user creates a profile and is able to log on to their dashboard to view, monitor and make payments at any time they wish. The user interface provides a full overview of how far along the user is with their payment plan through an easy to use dashboard.
