    Just wondering if anyone self-employed is offering consumer credit, monthly repayments to customers while you get paid upfront. Would love to hear details if anyone does this.

    You need a consumer credit licence. Most finance providers want to see 1-2 years worth of books and a turn over of 250k or over. There are providers with less strict criteria. The consumer credit licence is about £500 but you would be best using a company that specialised in obtaining them and provides you the required level of training required.

    For a sole trader its not worth the grief loads you need to comply with, been doing this job for over 30 years (SE) never had the need to offer finance , Cash / Cheque / Bank transfer / C Card get yourself a Sum-up card machine, no contract, 1.6% per transaction around £20-£30 to buy works of your phone.
