Now that Blispay is going out of business, what do you recommend for those of us who followed your advice and implemented their financing plans in our e-commerce sites?November 26, 2018 at 4:02 pm #287235
From what I see it’s not officially out of business, but they have frozen lending which is concerning. You can remove their banners from your site. Since there’s no direct integration (unlike Bread and other financings solutions) removing the banners and other promo materials is about all there is to it. You can replace it all with PayPal Credit’s lending program until Blispay sorts itself out (or not). PayPal Credit is very popular and if you accept PayPal, you can offer PayPal Credit. Hope this helps!

Thanks. They’re out of business; they’re just not admitting it yet. The business model isn’t viable. They are counting on too many people treating this like a regular credit card and being irresponsible and paying interest, and they’re assuming that few transactions will fall into the promotional guidelines. Instead, people like me use the card exclusively for high-dollar purchases and pay it off over time. It would literally be less expensive for them to give everyone $10,000 and ask them not to sign up. 🙂
PayPal Credit is a good fall-back and we support that already since we accept PayPal. But their banners are weird. I haven’t tried hard but I can’t get them to scale to the size of a mobile device. They appear to have fixed width. I’ll keep trying. I’m sure it’s possible; I’m just not clever enough with CSS. 🙂
Thanks again for the response.
