1847 Goedeker Inc. (NYSE American: GOED) ("Goedeker’s" or the "Company"), a one-stop e-commerce destination for appliances, furniture, home goods, and related products, expands its partnership with American First Finance Inc. ("AFF"), an innovative third-party financing company offering a flexible and affordable lease-to-own payment option. Because this is a third-party financing platform, Goedeker’s will assume no credit risk or have any balance sheet impact.
"Offering a variety of payment options improves our customers’ purchasing power, ultimately leading to increased conversions and sales," said Doug Moore, CEO of Goedeker’s. "Our latest lease-to-own option through our financing partner AFF will afford Goedeker’s customers flexibility and freedom in their purchase decisions without requiring a long-term commitment."
The Company’s new lease-to-own financing solution is an extension of its third-party financing solutions through AFF and will provide fast decisions and affordable payments, enabling Goedeker’s appliance and furniture customers to get approved for up to $5,000 and pay less when the full balance is paid off within the first 101 days.
"We saw an opportunity to enhance our existing partnership with Goedeker’s to bring them a solution for their ecommerce platform that will benefit consumers tremendously. Customers will get better payment options that fit their budget. This is just one of the many ways we plan to strengthen our partnership with Goedeker’s," said Lance Taylor, Senior Director eCommerce Sales of AFF.
