Toolstation has introduced its new Trade Credit account and January Catalogue as part of its continued commitment to further support its trade customers. It comes at a time when almost half of tradespeople admit to being worried about the impact of the pandemic and one in five concerned about cash flow difficulties, according to a survey of 706 Toolstation customers.

The new Trade Credit account offers added support with more efficient financial management, with up to 60 days interest-free credit, flexible credit limits, and fully online account management. Signing up for a Trade Credit Account allows customers to buy now and pay later and get the tools and supplies needed for larger jobs.

Toolstation has also taken steps to further enhance the in-store customer and digital experience in recent weeks, introducing WiFi in stores and improved payment terminals. Easier payment methods have also been introduced with customers now benefitting from the option of payment through PayPal Credit, Google Pay, and Apple Pay in store and online.

James Mackenzie, Managing Director at Toolstation, said: "We are committed to providing our customers with the tools they need to get the job done, but more than that, improving their overall experience. Introducing the Trade Credit account, requested by so many of our customers, will provide added support and convenience, particularly as some may face increased challenges in January. Launching at the same time as our latest catalogue ensures our customers can continue to benefit from the tools they need at great value as they work hard to keep homes and businesses safe, warm, dry, and secure in the New Year.”
