Synchrony (NYSE: SYF), a leading consumer finance company, today announced that merchants can now offer a short-term, interest-free, installment payment option, Synchrony SetPay pay in 4, through the Clover point of sale and management system of Fiserv, Inc.
This “buy now, pay later” (BNPL) offer will further extend the reach of Synchrony’s innovative payment and financing options and allow select merchants using Clover to accelerate growth while providing consumers with more choice and flexibility – especially at the point of sale.”
With more than a third of shoppers saying they are more likely to be looking for additional financing options now than they were two years ago,1 SetPay’s SetPay Pay in 4 Installments offer typically gives customers the option to make four equal, interest-free payments payable for purchases between $40 and $500, with the first payment due at checkout. The offer will be part of the Pay with Synchrony app, available on the Clover App Market for participating merchants using any Clover device. This app will be the first time a combined private label credit card and BNPL solution is available to small merchants on the Clover platform.
Rad Air Complete Car Care & Tire Centers, an Ohio-based auto and tire service franchise, implements SetPay to offer customers a simple and flexible way to fund purchases with predictable, equal payments over a set period of time. Rad Air has worked with Synchrony since 2014 as a member of the Synchrony Car Care™ network, which has helped them build a loyal customer base and increase sales volume.

We now have everything we need on the Clover device to offer customers more financing and payment solutions that meet their needs and get them back on the road quickly. “
