Cisco Capital offers a number of programs which aim to enhance channel partner profitability.

Cisco Channel Lease Incentive (CLIP) program is designed to increase your margins when you refer qualified lease transactions to Cisco Systems Capital. The program gives you the flexibility to add margin to the amount of a lease transaction that utilizes a Cisco Systems Capital lease or financing offering and recoup that margin as a commission.

For example, if a partner wishes to add an additional one percent to the gross amount of the lease transaction that uses the Cisco Systems Capital standard customer financing rates and the customer accepts the higher payment quote this one percent add-on becomes a payout to the channel partner. This capability is available directly through Cisco Systems Capital for customer transactions greater than $15,000.

The incentive is not visible to the customer — the transaction is strictly between Cisco Systems Capital and the partner who is handling the deal.
