Popular hairdressing salon TONI&GUY has partnered with Laybuy to allow its clients to spread the cost of purchases over six weekly instalments.
Laybuy is an interest-free ‘buy now, pay later’ payment platform which has already partnered with fashion retailer Footasylum as well as fashion brand ALEXACHUNG.
Former big-name retail CEO Gary Rohloff co-founded Laybuy with wife Robyn just two years ago and wants the platform to be as big as Visa and Mastercard.
The option to pay by Laybuy is available in over 50 TONI&GUY salons nationwide from today with additional salons set to be added over time.
The development is due to
SALONGENIUS POS software is used by all TONI&GUY salons in the UK and is the only software company currently integrated with Laybuy on a nationwide basis.
“TONI&GUY is focused on ensuring the best experience for its clients. Laybuy is an example where developments in technology and payment methods offer our clients even more opportunity to benefit from fabulous hair at TONI&GUY at a time of their choosing,” said Paul Jackson, MD at SALONGENIUS.
Laybuy continues to develop its offering to give consumers more flexible options at the checkout. For example, Laybuy Boost allows clients to pay more up-front if their credit limit doesn’t cover the cost of the items they want, if they have the extra money to hand.
A customer may have an available Laybuy credit limit of £240 but wants to purchase something for £300. Through Laybuy Boost, a customer can make a higher initial payment of £60 and then pay off the balance of £240, equal to their available Laybuy credit limit, over five instalments of £48.
This gives consumers additional flexibility but ensures they do not spend beyond their means.
Rohloff said: “TONI&GUY is the first salon Group to offer Laybuy as a payment option in the UK, and I’m sure their clients will really value it.
“The festive period is such a busy time for retailers and consumers, so making the shopping experience as convenient as possible makes a huge difference.
“Features like Laybuy Boost are excellent examples of how we continue to innovate, giving our retail partners and their clients a range of additional ways to pay that better suit them.”
