Why should I offer financing?
50% of all home improvement investments over $5,000 are financed. Additionally, over 30% of all homeowners research financing options before making a home improvement purchase. Offering financing enables you to close more sales and earn more money on every job. By translating a large, expensive home improvement into a low monthly payment, you’re less likely to lose sales because of pricing, and you’re less likely to see customers haggling with you over costs. Quite simply, offering financing can help you to grow your business.

With supply chain issues home improvement projects can take a longer time to get started. An approved application will expire in 180 days from the date of approval. This means that if your project has not been complete
Do you offer Advance Funding or Staged Funding?
Yes. We offer advance funding which gives contractors money in advance to start their projects. Our current base program is 40/60 with 40% paid on job commencement or material purchase, with the remaining 60% paid at the completion. of the project. First, all contractors must apply, and be approved before they get access to staged funding. Approval can take a few days or more depending upon the level of review that’s required. For active merchants with a Merchant ID you can use this link to request access to advanced funding
Do you offer APR buydowns?
Yes, we offer every merchant the option of buying down the rate. You will see this option when you log in PowerPay and start working on the loan. Buydowns can be very effective tools to help close a transaction. Some contractors use them on every sale and build the pricing into their entire selling program. Others use the buydown selectively to help close a customer that is interest-rate sensitive. In most cases we allow you to buydown the rate to 4.99% and may have other options for volume merchants. There are fees for the premium service which you can discuss with your territory representative.
Why do Dealers & Contractors choose us?
We were founded by a home improvement professional who knows firsthand the power of financing, as well as the damage fees can do to your bottom line and your customers’ pocketbooks.

Customers don’t pay you. PowerPay will direct deposit funds into your account via ACH within 48-hours after the install. You keep 100% of the funds, and your payment is guaranteed when you complete the project. It’s simple, fast and easy. No more collection calls and chasing clients for payments.
How does PowerPay work?

Your customer will apply online using our online application form and a decision is generated in seconds. Once approved, you can complete the transaction with your customer from our easy-to-use portal. Electronic documents will be sent via email and your customer can sign electronically – we are fully paperless. Your customer won’t get any bills for a month or so after installation. You will get paid by PowerPay in full after the installation is complete.
Who is the Lender?
While other finance companies serve as “middlemen” and take fees from you for allowing you to offer financing to your customers, PowerPay does not act as a middleman or lead generator. We have funding commitments for $15 billion. Every borrower is approved through our systems and all loans are processed through our system. That means that we control the rate and loan term, and service every loan.
How complicated & time consuming is set up?
With PowerPay, enrollment is through a simple form that takes 2 minutes. After that, our team will train and onboard you or your salespeople at no cost at a time that’s convenient for you. Our process is so simple that training takes less than 30 minutes. We can have you up and running and writing loans in one day.
Promotional Programs - the difference between PowerPay and other banks
There are several types of promotional loans. PowerPay offers two types. Same as Cash and 12, 18 and 24 months no interest and no payment promotions. First, PowerPay promotional loans are not credit cards. They are unsecured personal installment loans. The main difference between a credit card loan and PowerPay promotion is the interest rate once the promotion is over. In most credit card “teaser” promotions that rate, once the promotion ends, will be in excess of 29%. Our loans, once the promotion ends will be approximately 8.99% for 15 years with no prepayment penalties so customers can pay off whenever they like. We don’t like the credit card promotions because the fees are excessive and we’ve seen too many people get hit with accelerated payments and massive fees. It’s just unfair and most contractors don’t seem to care what the customer pays after they’ve completed their job.
With uncertainty in the economy and financial markets we believe that if a customer wants to use the promotion and then pay it over time, it should be at a fair and reasonable rate. Most contractors and dealers offer “teaser” promotions as a marketing tool but at the end of the day, only consumers will above-average credit qualify. PowerPay offers promotions for customers at many credit levels.
Our same as cash promotions essentially allows the customer to make a purchase and pay off the loan in equal monthly installments similar to how you purchase an iPhone. These programs are offered with the lowest fees in the industry. Ask your sales rep for more information.
