    We use John Deere Landscaping program. Well I should say we are set up to use it haven't yet but we get paided when the job is complete by JDL and the customer is billed monthly and its only 8.5% which isn't too bad. The only other thing we can do it right over the phone in the customers house to get them approved. It seems nice will update once we try it. Otherwise CASH IS NICE!!!!

    I was just looking at J.D financing, I'm not interested in financing the customer myself. I was just wondering if it brought anymore business in.

    I did the John Deere program maybe up to 3 years ago. Had a few customers that used it i think it was a 3% fee.
