Founded by short-term loan customers who were unhappy with the service they had received from other lenders, Buffa understands why customers are sceptical about companies like them. That’s why they aim to make short-term loans as simple and transparent as possible.
What we created
When Buffa first approached us, they wanted to become a top-tier operator in High Cost Short Term Credit (HCSTC), targeting customers who had endured difficult experiences with other HCSTC products, and new customers seeking the best deal.
We used Craft CMS and its plugin Craft Commerce to create a powerful and customisable e-commerce platform. This was integrated, via a secure API, with a Loan Management System to approve or reject applications. The API also provides customers’ transactional data, which is hidden behind a multi-factor authentication login system.

Launched in September 2018, the Buffa website perfectly reflects the values of the company, as any good website should. It is black and white in every sense, providing a no-nonsense interface which makes it simple for customers to understand Buffa’s principles and make applications quickly and easily.
The value that a good website confers on a business cannot be overstated. The Buffa website is one of the best we have developed, and it has helped Buffa to achieve rapid growth, rising from obscurity to become a well-known payday lender in a short period of time. They are now processing around 1700 loan applications every month.
Since the launch of the website, we have developed a bespoke payment integration system for the website. This gives customers greater flexibility to make repayments whenever they wish, not just on the automated date, making good on Buffa's promise to be a more open and customer-friendly payday lender.
