Monday, 11 July 2005 – Until now, if you wanted to shop online and use finance, you had to provide all your details and wait until the finance company could approve your request. Now there’s a solution that means you can get an answer at any time – day or night, weekend or week-day.

The new system has been a joint development between Conduit and Five Star

Consumer Finance and is the first to be fully integrated in to the Baycorp system. It can be built-in to any website where a consumer finance option is required and provides total flexibility for shopping at any time.

The first implementation of the system is now live at, an online store of the Apple Division of Renaissance.
