We’re excited to announce that we’ve partnered with Humm! If you’re a Kitomba customer in New Zealand or Australia, you have the option to offer Humm. Now your clients can enjoy visiting your salon, spa or clinic today, and pay for the services or products over time.
What is Humm?
Humm is an instalment payment solution which gives your clients the choice to enjoy their service or products now and pay for them over time.
Humm is powered by FlexiGroup, the company who bought you Q Card, Q MasterCard and Farmers Finance Card.
Why offer Humm?
The ability to pay for your service or purchase over time is no longer just a trend, it’s becoming a standard payment option that many consumers expect when they shop at any retailer or service provider.
Instalment payment solutions, like Humm, allow your clients to have their service or products straight away, enjoy the moment and take control of the cost, by spreading it over manageable payments.
Humm has found that offering consumers this kind of flexibility often helps to drive repeat business and increase consumer spend, which is great news for your salon, spa or clinic.
What do you need to know about Humm?
What payments will your clients make?
Humm lets your clients spread the cost of their purchases over four interest-free fortnightly payments with the first instalment paid at the time of purchase.
Are there set-up fees, interest or other charges for your clients?
Humm is interest free and there are no fees to use the service. However, if your client doesn’t make their payment on time, a late payment fee of $10 will apply.
What does it cost a Kitomba salon, spa or clinic to use Humm?
We’ve worked with Humm to ensure that we can provide the best available rate! Please contact Humm for more details.
When do you get paid for the service?
Even though your clients are paying for their purchase in instalments, you’ll receive payment for their purchase, minus the fee from Humm, the next business day.
