Jobber, Edmonton, Alberta is partnering with Wisetack to enable home service companies to offer financing options to their customers. With the new consumer finance feature, homeowners can pay in monthly installments for jobs like home renovations, landscaping, roof repairs, a new stove or air conditioning, giving them more flexibility when carrying out large projects or urgent and unexpected repairs. While homeowners have the benefit of paying overtime, home service providers who use jobbers continue to receive full pay for a job once it is completed.
“Consumer finance is another way Jobber is helping home service entrepreneurs meet homeowner expectations, compete with larger competitors, and ultimately be more successful,” said Sam Pillar, CEO and co-founder of Jobber. “Jobber customers can now offer premium services with more confidence, and homeowners can take on projects and repairs with one convenient and flexible payment option. We’re excited to add consumer finance to Jobber’s financial solutions and empower small businesses to deliver great service to their customers. “
“The reach of jobbers among home service professionals allows us to be more accessible to more businesses across the country,” said Bobby Tzekin, CEO and co-founder of Wisetack. “We have had really great feedback from the service providers we’ve worked with so far and we’re excited to be helping more companies with this launch.”
Consumer finance can be automatically offered through Jobber for housing offers between $ 500 and $ 25,000. To apply for monthly funding, homeowners fill out a brief application and receive an instant decision. The annual percentages range from 0% to 29.9% and there are no prepayment penalties, origination fees, late fees or compound interest on the homeowner’s account.
Customer financing is available to Jobber customers in the United States who meet the eligibility requirements and have been approved by Wisetack.
