Deepings takes on Tradepro's card.

Deepings credits loyal customers

Published:  01 March, 2010

PETERBOROUGH: The Deepings Trading Company has joined forces with discount card issuer TradePro to offer its customers more spending flexibility.

The merchant’s operations director Ian Greenfield said: "Unlike traditional merchant accounts, customers who sign up for the card will not have to pay off their outstanding balance in full every month.

"To help with their cashflow they can spread payments by making the minimum payment of 4.25% of the outstanding balance or £15, whichever is greater."

TradePro is the card for tradesmen to use in builders' merchants like Deepings Trading. Customers can get up to an additional five per cent discount on all goods purchased using the card.

Cardholders can also get a rolling line of credit of up to £10 000 combined with a 45-day interest free credit period, low APR and no annual fee.

Tradesmen signing up for the card get the full support of a customer service team and a free legal advice line. They can also manage their accounts online and access monthly statements, download account files, check VAT and manage their payments.
