Equity Sales Finance, Inc. (ESF) is a sales finance company, providing its customers with closed-end finance services. ESF acquires retail installment contracts made by consumers who wish to pay for services or goods over a fixed timeframe. “Closed end financing” is simple and clear: the consumer agrees to pay for a specific good or service, and make payments over a specific timeframe or “term.” Unlike “open-ended” lines of credit, which may, for example, remain open for use, resulting over time in additional interest and fees, a “closed end” credit contract is a promise to pay a set price, with a set interest rate, divided into equal payments, over a set amount of time (also known as a fixed term). At the end of the fixed term, when the good or service is paid for in full, the contract is satisfied, or “closed.” Closed-end credit contracts provide consumers with certainty and stability. The consumer knows exactly how much they will pay, and for how long.
A car loan is a good example of closed-end financing used by millions of consumers. Auto sales contracts are often purchased by a reputable finance company. (We do not finance auto contracts at this time, but it is an illustrative example that many consumers can relate to.) In turn, all billing and payment services through the life of the fixed term are conducted through – and paid to – the finance company, which retains the car’s title until all payments have been made. Similarly, Equity Sales Finance, Inc. purchases from merchants the closed-end contracts they have with its customers – obtaining ownership of the promise to pay, and then provides billing and payment services for the consumer until all payments have been made. ESF provides the consumer with billing statements and receives the consumer’s monthly payment for the life of the payment promise.
