Customers were incentivised to pay off their Cellucity/LayUp instalments by 28 December 2023, entitling them to a 10% cash-back on their order.
The Power of a Discount
Capturing a customer’s attention in a competitive online or in-store marketplace can be challenging. To help boost conversion rates and subsequently augment revenue, an understanding of consumer purchasing patterns, customer requirements, and incentives is crucial.
Seizing the value of saving, LayUp Payments collaborated with Cellucity to implement an innovative, incentivised plan, aiming to encourage customers to settle their instalments sooner and receive a tempting 10% cash-back.
Customers who made purchases at Cellucity and selected a LayUp payment plan within a specified timeframe were granted an exclusive 10% cash-back on their total order. Notably, 57% of users completed their orders within the stipulated period, achieving the payment goal through two-part payments.
Allowing customers time to accumulate earnings over two pay cycles resulted in a prioritised approach to payment, ensuring they acquired their devices without incurring unnecessary debt. All 57% of users utilised debit cards or Account 2 Account payments, affirming that customers placed a higher value on savings than credit and were duly rewarded for this preference.
