Today Charlie Youakim, Co-Founder of Sezzle, joins us for All things Sezzle. We’ll deep dive today into using alternative payment solutions, and see how paying in installments has really come naturally to today’s youngest consumers. Charlie gives us the background on how their company came to be, their mission, how to implement Sezzle into your business, and how it’s benefiting both customers & business owners. The future of payment is here, so you can’t miss out on this valuable knowledge that’s transforming our industry!

Plus, today we’re kicking off a HUGE Shop Small collaboration for the entire month of November, giving 5 lucky shoppers and 5 lucky boutiques opportunities to take home over $5,000! Join us this month to raise your voice about SHOPPING SMALL and the impact your business makes on your community and your country!


Key Points:

  1. When a customer feels safe and has a more efficient way of paying, the more likely their going to hit the checkout button. 
  2. The more payment options you have as a retailer, the better. 
  3. Your business is your baby, you need to be all in!
