These are the two main services that goeasy has developed for its customers. In addition, it operates through its subsidiary companies that have different conditions and different requirements.

The first subsidiary of Goeasy is Easyfinancial. This company offers different types of loans, such as personal loans, home equity loans, auto loans, point-of-sale financing, value-added financing, and small business financing. These services can have different conditions and terms. Borrowable amounts depend on the type of loan that customers need. For example, home equity loans can reach $75,000, and personal loans - to $20,000. Interest rates vary as well. Again, it depends on the loan type, loan amount, term, and the company’s assessment of customers’ credit profiles. The range of the APR is 9,99% - 46,96%.

All the process can be completed 100% online as customers can choose what they need on the company’s website and then fill out a leasing application. The interest rates are also adjustable and depend on such factors as the type of furniture, its price, and others. Rates start from 29,99% and can reach 46,96%.
