PARIS, Feb. 1, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Ingenico, a global leader in payment acceptance solutions, and Splitit, the only white-label consumer credit installment payment platform, today announced a global strategic alliance to provide a unique and commission-free solution, "Buy Now, Pay Later" (BNPL), at the physical point of sale using Ingenico's and Splitit's innovative as-a-service payment solutions.
According to the Juniper Research report "Buy Now Pay Later: Reshaping the Payments Market" (August 2022), "Buy Now, Pay Later" (BNPL) users will exceed 900 million globally by 2027, up from 360 million 2022. At the same time, 75% of commerce is expected to continue to occur at the point of sale, indicating a significant opportunity for merchants to offer customers a flexible in-store payment option."
Traditional BNPL services have struggled to gain a foothold at the point of sale. The friction of a shopper having to go through a multi-step process to register, apply for financing, or sign in to a third-party app or service often leaves the shopper so frustrated that they abandon the purchase.
The alliance between Ingenico and Splitit removes these barriers by providing a comprehensive, onetouch and interest-free BNPL service integrated into the merchant's payment terminal. The result is a compelling omnichannel customer experience that helps grow the merchant's business while driving loyalty and purchase retention.
Ingenico's PPaaS as-a-service solution enables its customers, such as banks and acquirers, to select from a catalog of payments and value-added services without the need for lengthy and costly software development, avoiding the complexity associated with implementation in different brands of terminals.
Splitit's payment as-a-service platform is a new way to enable BNPL installment payment through a personalized white-label experience for each merchant by integrating it into their payment flow. Unlike the traditional BNPL service that involves new loans, Splitit unlocks existing consumer credit on the credit card at 0% interest. Any consumer with available credit on their card is automatically qualified to use Splitit2 for the value of that available credit. There is no application, registration or redirection, no additional interest, hidden fees or credit checks, making it the best BNPL payment experience both online and at the point of sale3.
The global alliance has generated great interest among clients of both companies, particularly in the United States and Western Europe.
Nandan Sheth, Splitit's Chief Executive Officer, said in relation to the alliance: "We are delighted to partner with one of the largest and most admired payment technology companies in the world. Together with Ingenico we can provide a unique solution to take advantage of the great opportunity offered by the BNPL at the point of sale, since it has a volume three times greater than electronic commerce This alliance will transform the BNPL at the point of sale, opening new opportunities beyond traditional commerce All sectors: health , furniture, repairs, automotive and commercial services, to name a few, will benefit..."
