Charlottesville, Virginia – July 13, 2017 – LendPro and Zibby are excited to announce a new partnership to provide Zibby’s innovative lease purchase program as a part of the LendPro Consumer Financing System. This partnership marries Zibby’s advanced underwriting technologies with LendPro’s simple, fast, and secure platform. The need to integrate became very apparent from retailers at the last Nationwide Marketing Group (NMG) PrimeTime event. The two companies have formed a partnership not only for NMG members, but for retailers across the country looking to provide a fast and easy lease payment option for nonprime customers as a part of a waterfall application process.

Fred Knops, CEO for LendPro, stated, “LendPro is very excited to add Zibby to our growing stable of lending partners. Zibby was recommended to us by one of our most important customers, and it’s important to us that we work ever more closely with our customers to find new and groundbreaking lenders to work with. Zibby certainly fits that description.”

“Our partnership with Lendpro is an important step for Zibby in our mission to grow access and reduce the cost of financing to non-prime customers at the point of sale” said Zibby CEO Brandon Wright. “We’ve worked very hard to create a prime experience for our non-prime customers, and Lendpro is a great example of terrific user experience for every customer in the credit stack.”
