Executive Summary

The rent-to-own (RTO) industry concept was introduced in the 1960’s and now RTO has grown into an important sector of the retailing industry. Rent-to-own business offer the facility of long-term leasing to consumers for using goods such as furniture, appliances and various electronic products. The rent-to-own industry has grown over 8,600 stores in the U.S., annually providing service to over four million consumers.

The core of the RTO arrangement is consumers gain instant access to new or used merchandise - most commonly appliances, electronics or furniture-with neither a credit check nor down payment in exchange for a number of fixed rental payments due either weekly, biweekly, or monthly. A consumer who respects the terms of the contract and pays all rents before acquiring the good leased, generally pays, in total, twice even three times the actual value of the good. Low Income population group because of the low disposable income are expected to rely on the rent-to-own business activities. And the needs of the low-income population will be met by the increased penetration and transparency of the rent-to-own market.

The high growth in online penetration is attributed to the proliferation of virtual rent-to-own business activity. As suppliers look for more efficient means of distribution, their participation in the virtual rent-to-own market has increased. With Aaron’s largest investment to date in 2014, which it paid for Progressive Financials, a leading virtual RTO provider, the virtual rent to own market has certainly got a new fillip. Progressive is not the only virtual rent-to-own provider, as Rent-A-Center created Acceptance NOW in 2010.
