About Rematch Credit Ltd (Licence: 626266)
Stoke-based DivideBuy was developed by Christopher Martin and Robert Flowers. The launch of www.dividebuy.co.uk went ahead in 2015 and since this time this lender has been intent on revolutionising point of sale 0% interest for e-commerce and retailers. Many partners have connected and as it stands on the latest financial report they turned over more than £3 million over the year. Profits arise from a subsidy charged per sale. What really stands out with this lender is the high claimed approval rate of 96% that is much higher than competitors (usually closer to 60%). There are 2 mattress brands that grant access to this funding. This is Otty and Rem-Fit who are quite evenly matched on the popularity front.
About Close Brothers Ltd (Licence: 124750)
This old school merchant bank was established by William Brooks Close in 1878. The larger Group has flourished over the many years and now turns over approaching £800m (last report: £785.4m). With financing there are various specialised markets taken on although they have tended to be mostly known in motoring. The retailing division is catered at www.closeretailfinance.co.uk where they have managed to attract more than 700 retailers, offering their technology both online and in-store. Connections are boosted by their relationships with DekoPay and Minerva. With mattresses, the star contract managed is with Eve Sleep. They also lend for Hugge and had worked with Brighter although they have stock issues and are currently only offering a PayPal gateway.
About Divido Financial Services Ltd (Licence: 628253)
Divido’s 0% plans are now available at 750+ retailers across a range of markets. One such niche that they look to have already conquered is mattress financing where they have secured 2 major contracts with Leesa and Simba. They also arrange finance for the Sleepbear and Sleeping Duck brands. Whilst being London-based, it was 3 Swedish friends that developed this impressive start-up (Anders Hallsten, Chister Holloman and Fredrik Borgquist). They formed the company in October 2014 with the launch of www.divido.com following in August 2015. As time has passed, we have seen expansion across Europe and even the United States. They don’t lend themselves, but rather act as the middleman, securing credit through their own marketplace.
