Nissan dealers can offer aftersales customers the option of interest-free payments for servicing and repair work as part of the brand's new partnership with Bumper.
The flexible finance service will be available across Nissan's 194-strong dealer network.
It follows the launch of Bumper’s Buy-Now-Pay-Later (BNPL) digital payment platform at West Way, the UK’s largest Nissan dealer group.
“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.
He added: “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.”
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.
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.”
Bumper has also partnered with Ford, Volkswagen Group and Jaguar Land Rover as well as Arnold Clark and CitNOW.
