BNPL Integration

Buy Now Pay Later (BNPL) is a payment method that allows your customers to purchase goods or services and defer payment for a period of time, usually ranging from a few weeks to several months. With BNPL, your customers can make a purchase without paying the full amount upfront, and instead, pay the cost of the purchase in installments over a set period of time.

BNPL is offered by third-party payment providers or financial institutions that partner with retailers to offer this service at checkout. Customers select BNPL as a payment option during checkout and then enter into an agreement with the payment provider or financial institution to pay for their purchase over time. Some BNPL providers charge interest or fees, while others offer interest-free installment plans.

BNPL can be a convenient option for customers who may not have the funds to make a large purchase upfront, but still want to make the purchase and pay for it over time. However, customers should be aware of the terms and conditions of their BNPL agreement, including any interest or fees that may be charged, as well as the potential impact on their credit score.
