Celerant and Sezzle Offer ‘Buy Now, Pay Later’ at Point of Sale

Merchants can offer buy now, pay later options in-store at the point of sale in addition to eCommerce to increase average order and drive more sales.




(PRESS RELEASE) ISELIN, NJ — Celerant Technology, a leader in retail software and eCommerce solutions, announced additional integration functionalities with Sezzle. Sezzle is a ‘Certified B Corp’ BNPL solution that empowers consumers to shop with options to split payments over set periods of time. Already available for Celerant’s eCommerce platform, the expanded option now allows retailers to offer customers ‘buy now, pay later’ options when checking out at the point of sale, in-store.

“We’re thrilled to deepen our collaboration with Celerant, enabling its retailers to seamlessly integrate Sezzle’s Buy Now, Pay Later solution across multiple channels,” expressed Paul Paradis, co-founder, and chief revenue officer at Sezzle. “Expanding into both online and in-store environments aligns with our mission to provide flexible payment options that enhance the shopping experience for consumers. With Sezzle, Celerant retailers can cater to a wider audience, offering convenience and affordability without compromising on financial responsibility.”

Leveraging Financing Options Directly at the Point of Sale
Retailers using Celerant’s eCommerce solutions can already offer customers options for ‘pay-in-2,’ ‘pay-in-4,’ and longer-term financing between 3-48-month options when checking out online. Now, Celerant has added a direct API integration facilitating the same ‘buy now, pay later’ options in-store. There is no additional fee for retailers who want to implement the integration at the point of sale inside the store; it simply needs to be activated by contacting Celerant and Sezzle.

“In recognizing the challenging financial landscape retailers face, Celerant understands the necessity of seamless shopping experiences and encouraging purchases, both online or in-store.” stated Ian Goldman, president and CEO of Celerant. “Our retailers can now offer the same seamless payment experience to customers whether they shop online or visit brick-and-mortar stores. This opens up new revenue opportunities. The method is quick, simple to implement, and carries no liability for faulty payments. Retailers receive funds within 24 hours, making it an effective way to boost sales and expand its customer base.”

Celerant’s Retail Point of Sale Software
Celerant offers two point of sale retail platforms that integrate with Sezzle – Cumulus Retail eCommerce, a cost-effective, SaaS solution for small-to-medium retailers; and Stratus Enterprise eCommerce, a comprehensive solution with advanced and custom functionality. Retailers opting for the Sezzle in-store integration can quickly get started with the financing options.
