Buy Now, Pay Later (BNPL) or Deferred Credit has grown rapidly in recent years. Used by more than 17m UK consumers, it's seen as a quick and convenient way to spread the cost of shopping.
However, the use of BNPL services has until recently been invisible to lenders. Experian’s BNPL or Deferred Credit data brings this information to market.
This provides rich insight into the spending and repayment behaviour of consumers and demonstrates how people are using these services to manage their personal finances.
Experian is empowering lenders to improve their understanding of an individual’s credit worthiness, based on their use of BNPL services and other lines of credit. Data can be used across the customer lifecycle to drive adoption, improve access to credit, help with responsive credit management and mitigate the risk of delinquency.
Most importantly of all, it can help consumers manage their money responsibly.
Experian’s BNPL payment data is available to access through a variety of services. These make it easy for you to consume and implement within your business.
It is being provided in two formats:
- Detailed transaction information for each BNPL account.
- Summarised and aggregated transaction data formatted into a set of easy-to-use, decision ready metrics.
