Certain fields within the invoice will be auto-populated. You will need to fill in the rest. Click the “+” sign to enter the product in formation of the item(s). Keep clicking the “+” to add more items.

In order to submit the final invoice, fields in red should be auto-populated by the system. Fields in green should be completed by you.

Click Save or Save & Submit (if available) when all fields are complete.

A few things to consider:

  • Do you already have a dedicated financing page with your other providers listed, or will that need to be created? This is a good place to place a banner embedded with your unique Customer Application Link.
  • Are there other locations on your site where you might like to add a button or logo? Your link can be embedded in a logo or a button similar to the other buttons on your site.

Our official banner, logo, and compliant language are available for download at

A: Once your link is installed, go to your live site and click on it as a customer would. If you arrive at the Terrace Finance application as expected and the last 4 digits of the string of characters that appear in the address window match your store number, then the installation is a success.

A: We provide a pdf flyer customized with your link at the time of onboarding. Simply print it out from the file on your own printer or forward it to your favorite copy shop for printing. If you need us to resend it, request it here.

A: You will need to log in to the portal to access your Merchant Dashboard. Once the customer has input their personal information, they will appear in your Merchant Dashboard.

You can monitor their status through your Merchant Dashboard. You will be able to see their progress throughout the application process and provide assistance in the event that they appear to be stuck.

A: Yes. If you serve commercial, as well as consumer customers be sure to let us know so that we can assign a commercial application link.

Please call the Customer Care Team at 888-509-1370, and we will set you up with the proper commercial application link and updated materials.

A: Commercial applicants are currently handled through a different process due primarily to the wide variety of programs that our commercial lender network offers. Our Commercial team works directly with your customer. They in-turn will notify you directly when it’s time to submit the invoice.

A: The payment amount due at signing varies by lender and is handled by the lender directly.

Q: The exclamation point means there is a piece of required information missing (stipulation) from the customer before their approval can be finalized. You may “Click” the exclamation point to learn what information is missing.

We send a series of communications to the applicant via email and sms text to alert them of the missing information. However, we also encourage you to take the opportunity to alert them, as well.

A: Almost! Once the customer is approved two things still remain to be completed before you release the merchandise.

  1. You must complete an invoice and submit it within your merchant dashboard, and
  2. The customer must read and agree to the lender’s offer and terms and e-sign the documents. We will email you with confirmation.
