Lease to Own video allows you to spread the cost of video production over the term of useful life (up to 5 years) with equal monthly payments. 


Whilst under the lease contract, your videos are hosted on the smartvideos platform for access anytime online (via a direct link or embedding into your own website), and then yours to own once the lease expires.



What if I change my mind and want to buy the video later?


At any time you can pay the difference between the lease already paid, and the total cost of the video. 


What if I need to make changes to my videos?


To change the videos in any way, is simply a matter of letting us know what your changes are and we will make these changes. The costs can be added to the remaining lease payment term or paid directly (depending on the details of the changes). 

What happens if I miss payments?


If you miss payments we notify you - if not rectified and your access to the platform is suspended until payments are made.
