There are a few ways to apply for financing through the SumoQuote integration with Sunlight Financial.

Prequalification Process: Prior to Quote Creation

Run a prequalification to confirm whether a homeowner will be approved for financing. This will:

  • Test to see whether this homeowner is eligible for financing.
  • NOT determine the total dollar amount eligible to be financed (requires credit application).
  • NOT effect a homeowner’s credit rating (a soft pull is made only).
  • Confirm that a homeowner can be approved for the minimum financing amount from Sunlight Financial ($20,000).

Here's how it works:

Credit Application: Before a Quote Has Been Created

Run a full credit application prior to creating a quote to see exactly the financing amount a homeowner will be approved for. This will:

  • Test to see whether this homeowner is eligible for financing
  • Determine the maximum dollar amount eligible to be financed.
  • Affect a homeowner’s credit rating.
  • Allow you to know how much a homeowner is approved for BEFORE creating a quote.

Here's how it works:

Credit Application: After a Quote Has Been Created

Run a full credit application AFTER creating a quote to complete the financing process, and determine the exact monthly fees the homeowner can expect. This will:

  • Test to see whether this homeowner is eligible for financing.
  • Determine the maximum dollar amount eligible to be financed.
  • Affect a homeowner’s credit rating.
  • Allow you to know how much a homeowner is approved for AFTER creating a quote.
  • Potentially require changes to your quote depending on Sunlight’s approval decision.

Here's how it works:

Direct Financing Email Template

When a quote is signed and financing is selected, a different email template is sent to you and your customer. Take a moment to review this email template and make any necessary adjustments to the wording.

  1. COnfiguration > Account Settings > Email Settings
  2. Click on Email Templates to access the dropdown menu.
  3. Scroll down and click Edit Template beside the Sent when the document is signed and includes direct financing email template.
  4. Edit the subject and/or body of the email and click Save.
