Buy now, pay later—that’s the trend from the previous year. The whole world dived into an unpredictable market situation, which made us use cash wisely and reinvent the way we pay for goods and services. Buy-now-pay-later (BNPL) solutions helped millions of people pay for goods that they needed during the quarantine; the next few months, the share of BNPL businesses rose, and their revenues skyrocketed.
Payment processing solutions are crucial to process payments made through BNPL solutions. Some companies have their own processing solutions, while others integrate existing payment processing (PSP) solutions. This type of integration allows companies to reach more merchants because they all use different payment processors.
In this article, we gathered information on what integrations with payment processors the most popular BNPL solutions have and how this influences their value.
