A year ago here I spoke of the growing market of the "Buy now, pay later" market of which the two big players are Afterpay and Zip. Well a year later, it is clear that the growth of these payment methods has increased.
Afterpay has replaced in google trend Paypal.
Afterpay tripled last year, while zip doubled which is pretty impressive. Now about 10% of Australia has used their services. Part of the appeal is that many that cannot get a credit card can get these cards. Here is a comparison from the retailer's point of view
Those of my clients that are using it report that a zip customer is a good customer, on an average they spend about $150 a transaction.
If you want to know more let me know.
