More than 100 thousand people bought footwear in installments in Westfalika and Pedestrian networks

At the end of September, the 100-thousandth installment agreement was executed on the Westfalika network.

Escort of buyers purchasing shoes by installments is fully automated based on the 1С 8 program. The company has developed its own scoring system, which allows the seller immediately on the spot in the store to assess the creditworthiness of the client.

Installments are issued for a period of up to 5 months; the installment amount shall not exceed 10 thousand rubles. Buyers make payments to the cashier of the store or through Sberbank. The company has a passive collection system - an autoinformer and SMS-informing customers about the timing of next payments.

Omsk, Kuzbass, Abakan are among the three leading regions in terms of the number of executed installment agreements, and Omsk, Kuzbass, and Irkutsk in monetary terms.
