SmartPay, an instant financing option powered by BillFloat, will soon be available via a select group of Radio Shack retail outlets in Houston as part of a pilot program, BillFloat announced today.

SmartPay allows consumers to pay for newly bought smartphones on an “in-store lease-to-own” basis. The new partnership with Radio Shack will be the first time such a financing opportunity has been available to potential smartphone buyers.

In becoming part of the pilot program, Radio Shack joins MetroPCS, Virgin Mobile, and CSpire in offering SmartPay.
