By Delisha Fernandes
The payments landscape constantly evolves, introducing another alternative called Buy Now, Pay Later (BNPL). This unique approach is changing how consumers make purchases online and in physical stores, providing greater flexibility and convenience in payments.
BNPL is a FinTech solution that allows consumers to purchase any product they require without making an instant payment. It differs from the traditional credit card.
