How to Compete for Buy Now, Pay Later (BNPL) Customers

Buy now, pay later (BNPL) solutions have grown in prominence as new players and payments incumbents are battling for market share. This includes firms like Affirm, Afterpay, Klarna, QuadPay, Sezzle, and Splitit, as well as legacy payment firms like Mastercard, Visa, PayPal, and Amex.

How will these providers will impact traditional POS card volume or damage the appeal of retailers’ private-label cards? And, who will win the battle for the younger consumer who is drawn to this payment option?

We are joined by Adam Hughes, the CEO of Amount, a fintech provider that offers a robust point-of-sale financing product suite. Adam discusses the growth of the buy now, pay later marketplace, and how traditional financial institutions can remain competitive for this business.
