US-based fintech Everyware has partnered with Sunbit to make the Pay-Over-Time integration available in Pay By Text form for convenient, quick, and safe payment processing.

The solution looks to enable an increased number of companies to successfully sell their products and services to customers who might otherwise not choose to or be able to pay for everything at once.

Pay-Over-Time capabilities and Everyware – Sunbit collaboration details Based on the information provided in the press release, the product looks to help customers get the services they need whenever needed, with access to personalised and transparent payment plan options being available across multiple industries of the likes of healthcare, automotive, home services, eye care, dental and beyond.

Hosted within Everyware's secure Pay By Text format, applications take 30 seconds to complete once the customer selects Sunbit. Companies are enabled to get paid in an expedited manner and see an increase in revenue for high- and small-ticket items, and in turn, approved customers can leverage a three to 24-month loan option, as opposed to having to pay in full at once.

Commenting on this, Everyware Founder and CEO Larry Talley stated that merchants rely on payments to activate, and being able to have instant access to them is believed critical. Per their statement, the Pay-Over-Time option helps expedite the process in a safe and secure environment, as moving money fast is a requirement for success, and the payment solution looks to help achieve that.

Per the announcement information, Everyware and Sunbit aim to support businesses in transforming their customer relationships and offerings, exemplifying the automotive ecosystem where financing options are believed to be especially important. Sunbit VP of Platform Partnerships, Oded Vakrat, added that the companies provide merchants and consumers with great value, combining the pay-by-text with an advanced pay-over-time solution, stating that such partnerships bring pay-over-time choices to an increasing number of consumers, and help better bottom line outcomes for businesses.

What is more, the solution extends options into the healthcare industry, where approved patients can leverage the flexible payment option. Per the press release, 58% of US adults advised they delay or decline medical care due to cost, and with ‘Care Now, Pay-Over-Time’, patients have the option to access the care they need when needed. This is believed to be an important solution for eyewear and vision providers too, as 30% of Americans avoid going to the eye doctor due to cost, and another 63% do not have vision insurance.
