Versatile Credit and Koalafi Unite to Broaden Lease-to-Own Financing Choices for Retailers

Furniture World News Desk on 5/18/2023

Versatile Credit Inc. (Versatile), the credit aggregation and customer acquisition tool for merchants and lenders, recently announced the integration of Koalafi, an omni-channel provider of inclusive financing plans, onto their platform. This partnership and integration aim to support retailers by providing a wider range of financing options to shoppers.


Koalafi offers clear and affordable lease-to-own financing to the significant population of U.S. consumers (40%+) who do not qualify for prime financing options like BNPL or store credit cards. Koalafi’s credit platform enables merchants to offer payment flexibility to their credit-building customers, giving those customers the opportunity to improve their credit over time. Through this integration, retailers on Versatile’s platform can offer a comprehensive range of financing options to maximize their approval volume, increase conversions, and create a better customer experience.


With Versatile Credit, merchants can offer applications through a variety of technologies and channels that align with their sales process. These channels range from traditional self-service kiosks and merchant-owned tablets to e-commerce integrations or consumer mobile devices. Versatile's cascade technology seamlessly guides consumers through various financing and lease-to-own product offers from prime, near prime, and no-credit-required providers, helping shoppers find the financing or lease-to-own option that suits their budget. Versatile's technology also empowers merchants to launch applications, process transactions, and evaluate the performance of their financing program, providing merchants with the tools they need to optimize their financing programs, drive sales, and increase conversions.


"Our integration with Koalafi demonstrates our continued commitment to help merchants offer a diverse range of financing options to their customers," said Vicki Turjan, President and COO of Versatile Credit. "By working with great partners like Koalafi, we are empowering merchants to better serve their customers and help them find options that fit their budget."


"We're thrilled to join forces with Versatile Credit to help merchants reach new customers and provide them with a convenient way to pay for important purchases,” said Shawn Sieck, Koalafi’s Chief Sales Officer. “Our collaboration will enable merchants to better meet the needs of their customers, ultimately resulting in more sales and greater customer satisfaction.”
