Liz commented on Last Mile

Hi Chelsea - thanks for your comments and encouragement! We are currently in conversations with two potential partners which offer mobile pay-as-you-go solutions which would allow our customers to make incremental payments towards products. We're very excited to start testing these options starting in January! These solutions currently only cover solar products, however.

At times, our agents themselves organize a payment schedule with their customers over a few weeks. In these cases, the product is delivered to the customer once all of the payments have been received. Cases like this help to show the trust relationship that agents are able to create with their customers.

Are there any other questions or thoughts the expert team can share to help me to refine the idea? Thanks again!

Hi Aden,

Thanks so much for reaching out! I'm very excited to learn about your reusable sanitary pad as we're always sourcing for new and affordable impact products, especially products which are locally made. I would love to connect with you to get more information about the pads and see how we can collaborate! My e-mail address is liz@lastmile.co.com - please send me an e-mail and we can continue the conversation!
