FORT WORTH, Texas, April 17, 2018 -- Ben Hogan Golf Equipment Company, LLC, manufacturer of premium golf clubs and golf bags, has united with global payments provider Klarna, to provide simple and instant financing for all Ben Hogan Golf Equipment purchases.
One of the primary goals at the Ben Hogan Golf Equipment Company is to make golf more accessible. The company has established multiple platforms to make buying easy and more affordable. These include the Company's ‘Factory Direct’ pricing structure which omits the middleman and passes along the savings to the consumer, and their innovative “Trade-UP” program, which allows golfers to trade in old equipment after purchase to defray the cost of new Ben Hogan Golf Equipment.
The alliance with Klarna was established so golfers can enjoy their premium Ben Hogan Golf Equipment instantly and finance their equipment over a given period of time, varying from six to 30 months, unless the consumer wants to take advantage of a “no interest” or “0%” which needs to be paid in full within six to 12 months immediately after the purchase.
“This financing option is another way of how the Ben Hogan Golf Company is making it easy to buy our premium golf products,” commented Scott White, President and CEO, the Ben Hogan Golf Equipment Company. "Even though our Factory-Direct business model allows us to sell high-end hard goods and accessories for much less than retail prices, we realize that plunking down $700 or so at one time for a set of irons is a significant investment. Klarna finaning allows golfers to spread payments out over time."
“We are honored to be growth partners with Ben Hogan as the company reignites this iconic brand in the marketplace,” said Jim Lofgren, CEO, Klarna North America. “I have grown up playing with Ben Hogan clubs and I look forward to the leveraging their direct to consumer offering to purchase my next set."
In addition to Klarna online financing, the Ben Hogan Golf Equipment Company does accept all major credit cards; Visa, American Express, Discovery, Master Card and Pay Pal. For more details on Klarna, please visit https://www.klarna.com/us.
