Studying market data including diagrams

Synchrony FinancialSYF has announced about its new long-term agreement to strengthen its consumer financing and credit relationship with Qurate Retail Group, a leading company in social, video and digital commerce.

Moreover, the company announced about the multi-year extension of its on-going deals with other Qurate Retail brands namely QVC and zulily. The relationship with QVC dates back to 2005 and the company has been working with zulily since 2017.

This year, the company completed more than 35 new credit collaborations in e-commerce, retail and healthcare industries, and extended 50 partner programs in various growth industries.
