Founder’s Message

Nikul Patel

Customers prefer to pay for almost everything via easy installments. However, due to lack of easy-to-use solutions, large in-person services transactions like home improvement, elective medical treatments, auto repair etc. are still not seeing benefits of Buy Now Pay Later. So, we founded Glider to embed financing into workflows of such transactions. By working with merchants, we offer easy to use financing options and make installment financing as easy as swiping a credit card. We also make it easy for the smaller banks to come on our platform which increases approval rates for merchants while reducing interest costs to consumers. With products like LoanGlide and JoyBump built on the Glider platform, we increase affordability of day to day to services for our consumers.
