The Warehouse Group joins PartPay platform

Timothy Kasbe, group chief information and digital officer at The Warehouse Group, says the retail chain is expanding its digital offering with the flexible payment option of PartPay.

A trial partnership between Kiwi-owned and operated instalment payment provider PartPay and The Warehouse Group has just been launched.

This means consumers are now able to purchase goods from The Warehouse and Torpedo7 online with the opportunity to break payments into smaller, more manageable amounts while still receiving their purchases right away.

There is a growing trend towards online shopping and customers appreciate having flexible payment options, says Kasbe, in a statement.

“We think this will be well-received by customers who can now have greater flexibility over managing payments, particularly around key calendar dates for families like Christmas and Back to School, at no additional cost to them.

“We’re pleased to partner with a New Zealand company to be able to deliver this service to our customers.”

Kasbe says the retail group has also launched a range of programmes to boost its digital offering.

This gives consumers another option to spread the cost which doesn’t charge transaction fees or interestJohn O’Sullivan, PartPay

“For example, we are working with New Zealand Post to simplify the delivery process with our new product Shipmate, offering unlimited deliveries for a single fee across all our brands – The Warehouse, Warehouse Stationery, Torpedo 7 and Noel Leeming.”

“Traditionally consumers can turn to traditional forms of finance when they purchase, but PartPay gives consumers another option to spread the cost which doesn’t charge transaction fees or interest,” says PartPay director and founder John O’Sullivan.

"Retailers like The Warehouse Group are seeing the business and customer benefits and they’re embracing the technology.”
