Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:

  • We have tons of content. In fact, since November 2011, I've published more than 26,000 posts on thousands of different business ideas and opportunities.
  • We don't sell much advertising. In late 2013, I realized that by selling advertising, what I was really selling was my readers. In 2014, I've already radically cut down on the number of ads and will hopefully keep cutting.

Here’s a thought. If you are in the retail sector and you’re concerned about dwindling sales, you may want to consider reviving a payment option we don’t hear much about anymore — layaways.

In today’s economy, instant gratification that a customer receives from instantly purchasing a product or item isn’t exactly always an option for everyone now. It may be time to bring back your layaway plan for your less fortunate customers who don’t have the money or credit to buy everything now.

They can pick out there items and put them away in your facility and pay over time and then take their items home once they are all paid in full. There are different ways and time frames that you can put on your own layaway plan to ensure that items are not off the shelf’s for a year or more.

There however are different tax stipulations and laws depending on your state. Before you implement your new layaway plan, make sure you check out your states law and tax stipulations before you begin offering your customers layaway.

What are your thoughts on layaway plans?
