Why offer financing options? The benefits speak for themselves.

Financing options are a win-win both for you and your customers, and by offering financing solutions from a premier loan provider like GreenSky®, you can really wow your customers. With MarketSharp, an industry-specific CRM system and GreenSky® partner, home improvement pros can take advantage of GreenSky’s loan program to attract more customers, close bigger deals and get paid faster.


    • Attract More Customers

Offering your customers financing options can give you a major competitive advantage. Think about it: if a homeowner is shopping around for a big purchase, they’re more likely to go with with a company that offers financing options over one that doesn’t. And if you really want to draw in more business, leverage MarketSharp and GreenSky’s partnership. With high approval rates, HUNDREDS of promotional loan plans (ex. No Interest/No Payment if paid in full during the promo period1, 0% Interest, etc.), and a hassle-free application process, GreenSky’s partnership with MarketSharp creates irresistible financing solutions that cater to all buyer types.


    • Close Bigger Deals

By providing your customers with financing options, you can steer the conversation away from budget constraints and focus on the value that they can get out of their purchase. When they can leverage deferred interest, no payment promotions1 or low monthly payment plans2, it’s easier for homeowners to say “yes” to projects with a heftier price tag. And, by taking advantage of MarketSharp’s partnership with GreenSky®, your customers can apply for credit limits up to $65,000 and gain the buying power they need to make big-ticket purchases.


    • Get Paid Faster

When you work with the right loan provider, offering financing options doesn’t have to be a time-consuming process that delays you from getting paid. In fact, with MarketSharp’s partnership with GreenSky®, you can treat your customers to a paperless, straightforward application process that doesn’t affect your cash flow. Here’s how it works:

      1. Your potential customer applies via the MarketSharp + GreenSky® branded mobile app, online, or over the phone with GreenSky®.
      2. Your customer receives a credit decision within seconds3.
      3. Your customer can approve a down payment from their new GreenSky account and you can process the payment just like you would a regular credit card.


So, with MarketSharp and GreenSky®, it’s possible for you to offer flexible financing options and get paid the same day your customer is approved. What’s not to love?
