Are you maximising retail finance within your business?

Posted on in Business News , Cycles News

IRFTThe Association of Cycle Traders (ACT) are delighted to announce a new service that allows retailers to amplify their sales and profits through effective training on retail finance.

Retail Finance Training (RFT) is an online learning course delivering an informed insight into Retail finance that can be completed anywhere, in your own time.

 

Train your customers to effectively promote retail finance

Do you offer retail finance but it hasn’t had the sales increase you expected? Do your staff know how to effectively promote retail finance in your store?

Various consumer surveys show that customers are more likely to spend a higher amount if retail finance is sold correctly, and for many customers, having the option to spread the cost was the main reason the purchase was made.

The RFT course will teach you and your staff how to encourage customers to make purchases, as well as maximising their spending through techniques such as financial promotion, Point of Sale (POS) and bundling.

The indie retail finance course is a fun and interactive course that shows you how to upsell the benefits of offering retail finance and how to make it make more profit for your business.

This course is designed for all owners and employees in a business that either currently, or plans to, offer retail finance as a payment method. The course saves your progress so it can be picked-up and completed when it suits you and once passed you get an indie retail finance qualification and certificate.

Your business invested time getting access to a retail finance account, now learn how to use it properly and sell more.

Give yourself, as well as your staff, the skills that will help you to boost sales and make retail finance a success for your business.
