Nissan partners with Bumper to offer aftersales customers interest-free monthly payments
Nissan is partnering with Bumper to offer aftersales customers the option of interest-free payments for servicing and repair work across its 194-strong dealer network.
The announcement follows the successful launch of Bumper’s Buy-Now-Pay-Later (BNPL) digital payment platform with West Way, the UK’s largest Nissan dealer group.
Bumper’s service is available from now to all participating Nissan dealers, with customers given the opportunity to split their aftersales bills – including accessories, maintenance and MOT work – over monthly instalments.
“We’re delighted to be partnering with Bumper to provide the option of more flexible payment options to aftersales customers across the UK,” said Chris Marsh, Aftersales Director, at Nissan.
“The ability for our customers to split their bills into affordable interest-free monthly payments will further enhance the customer experience and innovation offered by our retailers. We have already seen great outcomes for dealer workshops using the Bumper platform, with an average transaction of £670 on a typical six year-old-car – a key target area for our retailers.”
Jack Allman, CCO of Bumper, said: “Working with Nissan, as its sole recommended supplier of BNPL, will provide owners with greater flexibility in how they pay for aftersales work.
“The provision of BNPL in workshops is still a relatively new concept which is resonating with customers as it removes the need for them to find cash to pay for work or use a credit card.
“This flexibility is also enabling aftersales departments to retain customers and sell unbudgeted work that might otherwise prove difficult.”
Recent months have seen Bumper, the eighth fastest growing company in the 2021 FT1000, also partner with Ford, Volkswagen Group and Jaguar Land Rover as well as Arnold Clark and CitNOW.
Bumper provides an interest-free digital payment platform for vehicle repairs and services, enabling owners to spread their costs.
Bumper is based in Sheffield and London, with a tech development centre in Ankara, Turkey.
