BrandSource members have a new private-label credit card option under new multi-year agreement with TD Bank’s Retail Card Services business.

Through the partnership, BrandSource dealers will have access to TD’s innovative in-store and online waterfall application and sales processing platform, TD Complete, powered by Versatile Credit. The platform streamlines applications, authorization, and settlement by providing a single interface to finalize transactions across a select group of premier lending partners.

Additionally, the platform delivers reporting and analytics in real time, providing members with deeper insights into sales across participating lenders.

“As a member-owned organization, we’re focused on finding new ways to add value to our network of independent dealers,” said Jim Ristow, CEO of BrandSource parent AVB Inc. “We’re confident that TD’s competitive financing programs and robust digital solution will simplify the process for our members and help them connect with customers.”

“We’re excited to be working with BrandSource to meet the needs of their member stores,” added Mike Rittler, General Manger Retail Card Services, Personal Lending, and Business Development at TD Bank. “Our approach is focused on working closely with our partners to deliver the market-driven insights and financing solutions that will help them reach their goals.”
