Over the Edge and Mepco Finance Corporation Partner to Provide 0% Financing for Dealer-to-Consumer F&I Ecommerce Solution
Westerville, OH — June 13, 2018 — Over The Edge (OTE), a leader in technology for the automotive insurance and aftermarket product industry, today announced a partnership with Mepco Finance Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Seabury Capital and provider of Seagle Payment Solutions, to incorporate 0% financing options into their turn-key TecAssured D2C (dealer-to-consumer) ecommerce software application.
OTE’s innovative D2C solution, which enables dealers to sell F&I products and services online to their customers, even after they leave the dealership, will now allow dealers to better optimize profitability through reduced funding costs.
Benefits of the partnership include reducing risk by making smaller and smarter advances for administrators and insurers, allowing dealers to better optimize profitability through reduced funding costs, and expanding their sale of aftermarket and ancillary products that may not qualify as part of a vehicle loan.
For consumers researching extended protection products online, this will enable them to now purchase plans more affordably than ever with installment payment plans and 0% financing.
“We are pleased to be partnering with OTE to provide installment payment plans for online aftermarket sales which will benefit administrators, agents, dealers and consumers by enabling an affordable product and simplifying the buying process. The TecAssured D2C e-commerce platform is a great fit for our financing solution,” explained Margaret Chan, President of Mepco.
“Partnering with Mepco allows us to incorporate valuable additional financing and payment options into our D2C e-commerce solution, and will makes it easier than ever for dealers to sell their F&I products and services online to their customers,” stated Joseph Pesce, CEO of OTE.
