Now Optics Makes Affordable Eye Care Even Easier with New, Flexible Payment Options through Sunbit Partnership
Leading Eyecare Retailer Now Offering Buy Now, Pay Later Technology at My Eyelab and Stanton Optical Locations.
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Now Optics, the parent company of eye care retail brands My Eyelab and Stanton Optical, announced today a partnership with Sunbit, the preferred buy now, pay later technology (BNPL) of service providers and retailers. The partnership will integrate Sunbit’s BNPL technology into all My Eyelab and Stanton Optical retail locations to provide customers with flexible payment options, making Now Optics’ mission to make affordable, accessible and efficient eye care even easier. Sunbit’s BNPL payment options are currently available at a majority of locations, and will be fully available at all Now Optics’ stores by November 10.
Sunbit’s BNPL solution approves 90% of people who apply and provides them with a three-months, no-interest financing option. To ensure flexibility and accessibility for all, six-month and 12-month BNPL options with interest are also available.
“We’re always thinking about new and innovative ways we can deliver simple, affordable eye care at My Eyelab and Stanton Optical, and our latest partnership with Sunbit takes that commitment a step further,” said Daniel Stanton, CEO of Now Optics. “Eye care is a right, not a privilege, so we feel obligated to provide as much flexibility as possible with payment options for each and every person that comes to our stores.”
The debut of Sunbit’s BNPL technology in Now Optics’ stores marks yet another technological milestone for the company, following their early adoption of optical telehealth. To date, the company has conducted more than 1.6 million telehealth eye exams, something no other optical retailer can offer.
Both My Eyelab and Stanton Optical feature an assortment of over 2,000 frames and top contact lens brands to fit both style and budgets and allows consumers the ultimate freedom to experiment with unique, stylish designs that fit their personal style. For convenience, My Eyelab and Stanton Optical accept both same day appointments and walk-ins for eye exams, starting at $45, which can be applied to any eye wear purchase.
Sunbit is the preferred buy now, pay later technology of service providers and retailers fulfilling the needs of thousands of local communities. Sunbit eases the stress of buying everyday things by offering access to fast, fair and transparent payment options to people everywhere. Sunbit technology is offered in-store and online through nearly 8,000 locations, including 1 in 4 auto dealership service centers, optical practices, dentist offices and specialty health care services.
