Credit finance for welding equipment from Omni-Capital

Are you thinking of spreading the cost of your purchase?

Finance is a great way to spread the cost of your purchase, if used responsibly. We have teamed up with Omni, one of the UK’s leading finance specialists, so that you can apply for and complete a loan application quickly and easily – the online application process only takes a couple of minutes to complete, and you will receive confirmation of whether your application has been successful, or referred for further consideration, instantly.

More about our finance options

Our monthly payment plans are designed to help make your purchase more affordable. 

We offer:

•     A payment terms between 6 and 36 months
•     APRs from 0% to 14.9%

The value of the loan needs to be over £250 and no more than £25,000 and you can choose a deposit of up to 50% of the value of the goods.

It’s important to remember that you should only enter into a finance agreement if you are sure you can afford the repayments for the full term of the loan. Whichever finance option you choose to apply for, you need to be sure that you can afford to pay the deposit, and keep up with your monthly repayments. You should think about any changes to your situation that might occur during the term of the loan, which could affect your income or expenditure, for example – retirement, moving home, changing jobs, or any health issues.

Check your Eligibility

You can be considered for finance if you:

•     Are at least 18 years old
•     Are a permanent UK resident and have lived in the UK for at least 3 years
•     Have a gross annual income of at least £5,000
•     Have a UK bank account capable of accepting Direct Debits
•     Have a good credit history with no late payments, Debt Relief Orders, County Court Judgments or bankruptcies
•     Meet any other Omni criteria

Finance examples

We offer a range of interest-free and interest-bearing finance options to help you spread the cost of your purchase over 6 to 36 months . 

Understanding the numbers

Make sure that you understand the costs, terms and key features of the finance options available to you. You will see this information as you shop and at checkout.

Use our finance calculator at checkout to see how different loan values, terms and interest rates affect the total amount you need to pay and the monthly repayments. The finance calculator is for illustrative purposes only and is not a quote, or formal offer of finance. The offer you receive if you apply will be dependent on your personal circumstances and the lender’s policies.

It’s important that you understand what this information means for you before you decide to apply for finance. The numbers and information you see when taking out finance can be overwhelming and so a simple guide is below to help you.

Here is an example of what you might see at checkout, with some handy explanations to help you understand what it all means. Please note that this is just an example, the format, layout and content of checkout finance calculators may vary.

Whichever finance option you choose to apply for, you need to be sure that you can afford to pay the deposit, and keep up with your monthly repayments. You should think about any changes to your situation that might occur during the term of the loan, which could impact on your finances - e.g. retirement, moving home, changing jobs, or any health issues which could affect your income or expenditure.

Alongside the finance calculator and on some of our promotional banners, you will also see the representative example. This could be written in a sentence, as shown in the example below, or in a table format:

Representative example
Cash price £500.00, Deposit £50.00. Total amount of credit £450.00 over 48 months with an annual interest rate of 4.9% (Fixed). Monthly repayments will be £10.32 with a total repayable of £545.36. 4.9% APR representative.

The representative example shows the finance information that we expect to apply to more than half of accepted applications for the specific amount and repayment term.

As we mentioned earlier, the representative example is not a quote or formal offer of finance - we display this to help you understand how much a loan will cost, and so you can compare it with other products.

Whilst these numbers are there to help you understand what a loan will cost you, it’s important that you understand any other potential costs in the terms and conditions of the finance option you select. For instance, you may be charged missed or late payment fees if you don’t keep up with your payments.

Finance Decision

Applying for a loan: Am I eligible to apply for finance?

You may be elegible for finance if you:

•     Are at least 18 years old
•     Have a gross annual income each year of more than£5,000.
•     Are a permanent UK resident and have lived in the UK for at least 3 years.

Will a credit search be registered against me if I apply?

Omni will perform a 'soft' credit search on your credit file as part of their assessment, to determine whether the loan is affordable for you and if you are likely to make your repayments on time.
It’s important to know that an application for credit will only result in a ‘soft’ search on your credit file until the point your application for finance is complete, at which point a 'hard' credit check will be recorded on your credit file. Only you can see that a 'soft' search has been made on your credit file, but a 'hard' credit check will be visible to others viewing your credit file, for example, if you apply for credit in the future, the lender will see that an application credit search was made on your credit file. 

What happens after I have submitted my application?

Your application will be assessed based on eligibility, credit history and affordability and Omni will let you know the outcome in just a few seconds.  
Your application may be referred to a lender for manual assessment and you may receive a request for additional information to support your application. 

What happens if my application is accepted?

Once your application is accepted you will be prompted to review and sign your credit documentation. This documentation will detail all the important information about your loan and should be read carefully.
