The echoes of Black Friday may have faded, but the reverberations of LayUp’s Black Friday Secret campaign continue to resonate. As we dissect the numbers, it’s evident that our efforts have not only exceeded expectations but set new benchmarks for LayUp as a payment solution.
“It’s positive to see the adoption of the LayUp solution over Black Friday,” says Andrew Katzwinkel, founder and CEO. “We are a pre-payment service that lets customers save now and buy later. This means they won’t get the item immediately, but will have the benefit of checking out instantly with no credit check. Moreso, they’re not at risk of interest charged or late fees.”
“This becomes super attractive when a customer only has a limited amount available to make purchases. With LayUp, customers could secure their black Friday deal with only a deposit payment and then spread the instalments over time on their terms.” – Andrew Katzwinkel
