What’s Up with Fees? The Cost to Provide Financing (and Why it’s Absolutely Worth It)

Stop discounting your services or letting customers pass you by. There’s a better way to help more families and sell more full funerals–and fees are the key.

Whether you are enrolled with LendingUSA or not, this webinar is for you. Fees get a bad rap. But when fees are the key to opening a line of credit, they can become so much more: An opportunity for families to pay for full funeral services they want, a way to hedge against uncomfortable cost conversations, and a method for funeral directors to stop cutting into their own profits by discounting or downgrading services. Fees are an essential cost of doing good business, not unlike like getting a business loan or paying for marketing. Learn the exact fees you and your families pay and stay tuned for a live Q&A at the end to answer your specific questions.

Key Takeaways: 

  • What fees do you pay to provide financing?
  • What fees do your families pay to receive financing?
  • Rethinking how fees help business
  • Live Q&A with update on FEMA reimbursement program
