Jifiti expands multi-lender white-label Buy Now Pay Later solution through partnership with Fortiva® Retail Credit’s industry-leading second-look program.
COLUMBUS, Ohio, June 21, 2022 – Jifiti, a global BNPL fintech company, today announced its partnership with Fortiva® Retail Credit, a leader in second-look consumer credit, to expand its Buy Now Pay Later multi-lender network.
Jifiti is a leading fintech company that powers white-labeled Buy Now Pay Later solutions for leading banks, lenders, programs, and merchants worldwide. As a proponent of responsible lending, Jifiti partners with tier-1 banks and licensed lenders that offer regulated consumer credit products. By expanding its lender network, Jifiti is helping merchants approve more customers, thereby increasing sales and average order value and optimizing customer retention.
Jifiti’s multi-lender platform enables consumers who aren’t eligible for prime lender approval to automatically get passed to a secondary lender via its smart-routing waterfall technology, thereby increasing acceptance rates and customer satisfaction. Fortiva Retail Credit’s consumer credit program complements the suite of consumer financing programs already powered by Jifiti’s platform, which include white-labeled split pay, installment loans, lines of credit and other lending products.
The Fortiva® Retail Credit program leverages Atlanticus Services Corporation’s flexible technology capabilities to allow The Bank of Missouri to offer a seamless transition from prime financing to a second look program with affordable payment options. When a shopper is declined financing from a prime credit provider, their application is instantly processed for Fortiva® Retail Credit’s second look solution, delivering a fully integrated consumer experience and more approvals for merchants. Using knowledge gained from over 25 years of data aggregation and consumer performance, Atlanticus’ technology platform allows banks to offer more inclusive financing options through more approvals paired with the best terms to optimize consumer experience. Integrating the Fortiva Retail Credit program into Jifiti’s white-labeled solution, ensures that the entire user journey is seamless from application through to funding approval.
“We are always looking for opportunities to extend the reach by which Atlanticus’ technology can help merchants say ‘yes’ to those customers applying for financing. Partnering with Jifiti and their BNPL platform presents just such an opportunity to better serve those customers that are often overlooked by traditional banking providers,” commented Dave Caruso, Chief Commercial Officer of Atlanticus Services Corporation.
“At Jifiti, we believe that there are different credit solutions fit for different consumers, which is why we offer a comprehensive solution. We’re excited to be marrying our existing prime bank lender program with the Fortiva Retail Credit Program in order to bring more responsible, affordable and transparent financial solutions to merchants and consumers worldwide”, stated Yaacov Martin, CEO and Co-Founder of Jifiti.
