Petland Expands Payment Options with NewComLink Financing Platform

Financing Allows More Pets to be Matched with the Right Family

Chillicothe, OH (PRWEB) May 08, 2014 - Petland, a leader in the retail pet industry, today announced expanded in-store customer financing options via a revolving line of credit through the NewComLink financing platform.

"Petland believes that pets make life better," said Joe Watson, Petland, Inc.’s President. "In addition to matching the right pet to the right family, we can now offer families the right financing option they need to take home a new family member."

NewComLink simplifies consumer financing, matching the retailers’ customers to the best financing option. A single integration of the NewComLink financing platform provides retailers the ability to offer multiple financing products from different lenders using a variety of devices at the point of sale.

"Using the NewComLink financing platform, Petland benefits from our ability to add new products without the burden of new processes and cumbersome procedures."

"Petland has served millions of customers over the past 47 years, and with NewComLink as a partner we can serve even more in the future," added Watson. "With our new revolving credit product, we can foster ongoing relationships with customers as they return to the store for all of their pet supply needs."
