Top Dogs for Finance Commission???

Recommended Posts

Been using Close Bros for quite a few years now, happy with the service, payout speed etc but I was wondering if I'm getting the best commission rates out there, which lets be honest it is the main reason why we offer finance. Currently Im offering 5.5% Flat as a base rate, maximum I can charge, anything less and commission drops. Example of deal going out this weekend, customer has borrowed £4500 over 48 months and my commission is £350. Is this about right or anyone who would give more commission on that deal? + they have a £350 doc fee built into it spread over the term. I don't have any stocking loans with them either so no ties......Any pointers would be appreciated.

Blue give much better commission and it’s paid instantly. Always handy to have a few. We use close, blue and evolution

This. 

Also you can sell Blue out much higher. I sold a 12500 advance out at 8.99 the other day.

Your customer would’ve been better off borrowing the money from Wonga! Lol

If ever there was a thread that belonged in the private members section, this might be it!

Fair enough if the customer had an average to poor credit and that was the only rate you could get them on with. If they were good and the rate was bumped up to this it’s a bit of a liberty if you ask me.

Be carefull,If that was ‘prime’ the chances are it could be settled early.

I was just pointing out Close Bros downside. They cap me at 6%, the OP at 5.5%. You’re either a yes or a no with Close. Blue have tiers and offer accordingly. It’s a much better system than Close. 

I admit my earlier post looked “braggy” but that wasn’t the point I was trying to make. I prop and the lender offer. I don’t bump up rates.

OK James,I have had instances where you do good finance deals with good commission and then the personal loan dept of the finance company hijack the deal.They would tell your punter that they can do a home improvement loan at a low rate which would include their car loan so they are quids in.Then all your commission gets clawed back !

Yep, i’m aware of the clawback risk. Nothing that can be done. The comms are nice but I haven’t exactly retired to the Bahamas on it. If it gets clawed back, ce la vie. Nobody will starve.

They probably rely on people thinking that’s APR!

I do a lot at lower rate to avoid clawbacks where its just not worth them changing on the lumpy stuff.

 

This is actually one thread I would love to see what TV has earned back in the day as I reckon there was some serious money in finance back in the day from what I hear with salesmen literally going to the bahamas on the finance company incentives.
