When Gammy Perez and his wife were looking for outdoor blinds, they noticed a need in the market for more affordable, high-quality options. So, they got to work, speaking with manufacturers and ultimately launching their own company, Blue Marlin Patios & Blinds, in April of this year. Since then, they’ve grown exponentially, employing several installation crews and keeping busy.
When Gammy was first starting Blue Marlin Patios & Blinds, he conducted extensive research and read reviews. After comparing a variety of providers, he decided that Finli would be the best fit.
One of the differentiators he liked best about the platform was that he’d be able to send invoices and get paid on time, which would help him manage his cash flow and order materials on a timely basis. He also loved the fact that using Finli would save him from having to make multiple trips to the bank to make deposits.
Cutting Out Credit Card Fees
Additionally, Gammy and his wife were drawn to Finli since it gave them the option to let the customer pay their credit card fees. This was important to the duo, as they lost as much as $15,000-$20,000 per year in credit cards in their separate insurance business. Being able to avoid those fees, while still offering customers the choice to pay with a credit card, has been a major bonus to Blue Marlin Patios & Blinds.
“I recommend Finli to every contractor I meet,” said Gammy. “Many of them have lost business because they don’t accept credit card payments. So I ask them, ‘why haven’t you signed up with Finli yet?’ It’s the greatest tool to have.”
Features & Benefits
Gammy also enjoys Finli’s quote management tool, and the payment link feature that was recently rolled out. Blue Marlin Patios & Blinds is making the most of their business success, and currently looking to expand into offering artificial turf and additional backyard products. Gammy and his team are thankful to have Finli’s support in invoicing and payment management, without the steep fees other providers charge, as they grow.
