  • Rent-to-Own Website Payments

  • Are you a small business owner who sees the value in having a professionally designed, custom WordPress website but...

    • you're not currently in a position to pay the website creation costs upfront OR
    • you prefer to spread the website creation costs over a longer period of time?

    Then, this may be the best option for you!

  • How does this Rent-to-Own payment option work?

    Rent-to-Own is NOT a new concept. It has been used in connection with furniture, consumer electronics, household appliances, vehicles, and real estate.

    The general idea is that you get to use the item while you pay it off through weekly or monthly payments. After an agreed upon payment period, you either own the item outright or you have the right to purchase it at a reduced price that takes into account the payments you have already made.

    With our Rent-to-Own Marketing Websites, you make a downpayment for us to get started building your website. This payment covers your first year of iBF Managed Hosting plus a portion towards the design/creation costs of your new website. The remainder of the website creation costs are paid off over time through automated monthly payments.

    During the payoff period, while you are making monthly installment payments on the balance owed for creating the website, you get to use the website as your own.

    Once you have paid off the website creation costs (either before OR by the end of the payoff period), the website will become fully yours.

    At that point, you have 2 choices:

    1. continue to use our iBF Managed Hosting service, OR
    2. move your website to your own hosting account and manage it yourself,
  • Rent-to-Own Website Payment Structure

    Our Rent-to-Own payment option is an installment plan that allows a professionally designed custom Marketing Website to be affordable to a wider segment of business owners.

    In many ways, having a website is similar to owning a house or a car.

    To purchase a house or car, if you can afford it, you could pay for it in full upfront. Alternatively, you could purchase the house or car with help from a bank, credit union or other lending agency.

    In this case, you pay a downpayment to the lending agency and they purchase the house or car on your behalf. You get to use it as your own while you pay off the balance owed over time. However, the house or car is NOT yours until all payments have been made. Then you get the deed to the house or title to the car and you own it free and clear!

    When a lending agency finances such a purchase, they usually charge interest on the balance owed as compensation for taking on the risks of...

    • spending their own money to pay for the house or car,
    • allowing you to take many months to pay them back, and
    • letting you use it in the mean time.


    Now, in creating your website, we have to pay various people for the work they do. In the case of our Rent-to-Own Marketing Websites, we end up paying with our own money to get the website built for you. Then we allow you to use it as your own while you pay off the website creation costs.

    So, by offering the Rent-to-Own payment option, we take on similar risks to a lending agency. To lessen these risks, we require that:

    1. the website must be hosted by us for the duration of the payment period,
    2. interest is added to the website creation base price, and
    3. the monthly payments must be automatically processed.

  • Rent-to-Own includes Website Content Maintenance

    Another perk of paying for your Marketing Website with our Rent-to-Own option is that (during the payoff period ONLY) you also get up to ½ hour each month (does NOT roll over) of FREE website maintenance. This is equivalent to $900 ($1200 in the case of the ADVANCED eCom package) worth of maintenance service over the duration of the payoff period.

    This Website Content Maintenance could include one or more of the following services:

    • adding, deleting or updating TEXT
    • adding, deleting or updating IMAGES
    • adding, deleting or updating VIDEOS
    • adding, deleting or updating LINKS
    • adding, deleting or updating FILES
    • creating or deleting PAGES or blog POSTS
    • making MINOR changes to site's existing layout
    • modifying the HEADER, FOOTER or MENU area


    PLEASE NOTE
    : If in any given month (during your payoff period) you require more than ½ hour of website maintenance assistance, then we will provide you a written quote based on our hourly maintenance rate of $100/hr +GST which is billed in 15-minute increments...

    • 01 - 15 minutes = $25 +GST
    • 16 - 30 minutes = $50 +GST
    • 31 - 45 minutes = $75 +GST
    • 46 - 60 minutes = $100 +GST


    If you want/need want more than the FREE ½ hour each month, we also have pre-paid Website Maintenance packages.
