Addi, Creditas, Kueski, Nelo, BNPL, Digital Commerce, Credit Management, Financial Services, Mexico, Latin AmericaCredit cards have been around for a long time now. In the digital age, retailers have partnered with Buy Now, Pay Later (BNPL) companies, making it easier for people to make purchases on their websites.

BNPL is a FinTech solution that allows consumers to purchase any item they want now without the need to make an instant payment. It differs from the regular credit card. The difference between a credit card and a BNPL option is that many BNPL providers don’t charge any interest, as there is a fixed repayment schedule.

Buy Now Pay Later is revolutionising how customers make online and in-store purchases by making payments more flexible and convenient for shoppers. BNPL apps are similar to credit cards, but the difference is that many don’t charge any interest as long as you make the scheduled payments.
