IMPROVEMENTS ON ELEMENT FOR DEALERS

Financing Button for OCA: If you are approved for customer financing through John Deere. You will need to add a link to your equipment. We have added a new button to the showroom to allow you to do just that. But, we kept it versatile enough to let you add any extra button in that space that you wish. If you are using eCommerce, a Buy Now Button might make sense. The choice is yours. If you would like to learn how to utilize this new feature feel free to Book Time with Me and I will be happy to show you how.
