How it works
Setup – Once Blinker is enabled on your website, with your own subscription terms, the Blinker call-to-action (CTA) will be visible on the vehicle detail pages of the inventory available for subscription across your website.
Eligibility – At the point of sign up, the customer’s identity is verified, and a credit assessment is performed instantly to determine eligibility.
Pricing – Once a vehicle is added, Blinker will automatically calculate the required deposit amount and a suitable weekly price to subscribe.
Plan – Assign a plan for the customer and add value for customers with subscription add ons like additional drivers.
Payment – The customer pays their first instalment upfront, then makes regular weekly payments for their subscription.
Without complicated software integrations needed, Blinker is the perfect solution to offer an alternative path to purchase to your customers, that can be set up fast and directly on your Dealer Solutions Modular Website.
Give your customers a flexible alternative to traditional car ownership with a new weekly recurring revenue stream for your dealership and offset seasonal sales fluctuations with a guaranteed recurring revenue source for your dealership.
