You would have a hard time imagining that Fingerhut, an online shopping center, was actually founded in 1948. Founded by William and Manny Fingerhut, they initially sold automobile seat covers only. In 1952, Fingerhut repositioned itself as a mail order catalogue company. With this new strategy, it added goods like towel, dishes and tools into its product catalogue. The company gained popularity in the next decade and a-half and hence, was made public in 1969. Bain Capital currently owns Fingerhut.com.
Fingerhut.com, however, is slightly different from other online retailers. That is, the customers can pay with credit, and make payments monthly until the orders are paid off. This is completely unique in its organization. This feature is made possible through Fingerhut.com MyAccount. Here is a step-wise guide to help you make payment with Fingerhut.com MyAccount.
