17 KEY SALES MESSAGING confidential & proprietary SmartPay is a lease-to-own plan that allows customers to make monthly payments on phones and accessories instead of purchasing them outright. Customers are approved for an amount of goods (phones, accessories, first month’s airtime) that can be purchased using this plan up to a maximum of $ though not everyone is approved for $1,500. Customers approved for over $450 (including taxes) get a 10-payments plan. This plan comes with a 90 days same as cash option, which means the customer pays no fees if they pay off their balance within 90 days. Customers approved for less than $450 (including taxes) get a 6-payments plan. This plan comes with a 30 days same as cash option, which means the customer pays no fees if they pay off their balance within 30 days.

19 FAQs confidential & proprietary 1. Can the dealers get a copy of the deck with the rules and screenshots? There is document recently sent to the AMs that can be used to train. 2. Can we get the customer application to be able to be pulled up on a tablet? Not at this time. 3. If the customer decides to wait before purchasing, and later goes to another store, do they have to go through the application process again? No, as long as the application is accessed within 7 days, you can look up and find an approved basket amount 4. How much is the fee for BillFloat? About double MSRP for the 10-payment product and 1.75 for the 6-payment. But they can pay off the amount early and save on the fees. We have a 90/30 days same as cash offering, which means consumers pay the same price as if they were taking the device out of the store as long as they payoff within 90 /30 days. Even after the “same as cash” period ends, consumers can save money by paying early. For example, a consumer that pays off after 5 payments saves half the fees in the 9-payment plan!
20 FAQ’S confidential & proprietary 5. Can customers choose which payment plan they want? The payment plan length is automatically determined by the amount the customer gets approved for. Customers approved for more than $450 get the 10-payment product, while customers approved for $450 or less are offered only the 6-payment plan 6. What can customers do to get the highest approval amount? Provide accurate information on their application. We can usually tell if customer information is not accurate and it decreases their likelihood of approval and decreases their approval amount if approved 7. What if a customer signs up for the 6-payment plan, how do they make their 30 days same as cash payment? The process for both “30 days same as cash” and “90 days same as cash” is the same: customers must log into their SmartPay account and make a special payment to payoff their balance early. The same as cash option is not automatic, so the customer must take action to exercise this option7
21 FAQs (cont.) confidential & proprietary 8. When refunded, do they get all their money back? Yes 9. What is the earliest a customer can pay off what they owe and avoid fees? It can be as early as the next day. 10. What money does the dealer collect from the customer? Only fees or charges for items not on the lease. Dealer does not collect on behalf of SmartPay. 11.

If the initial payment isn’t in their bank account, what happens? “Funds not available” will show up and the transaction will not proceed, therefore the customer will not be able to proceed with the transaction. 15. In case of a return, how long does it take for the customer to get their money back on their debit card? 1 to 2 business days. 16. Can the customer pre-pay more to get a smaller monthly payment? No, a larger pre-payment would give less months but not make the monthly payment smaller. 17. Can you do this on new and upgrades? Yes, both new and upgrades qualify.
