Customers can now choose to pay in monthly instalments over a period between 6 and 24 months.

PayPal (NASDAQ: PYPL) has launched “PayPal Pay Monthly,” its latest BNPL product, aimed at offering customers more choices and flexibility for making payments. The product is addressing the issue of credit card debt, now a serious problem amidst 40-year record inflation, rising interest rates and fears of an impending recession. (ZDNet)

“As the macroeconomic environment continues to evolve, consumers are looking for ways to stretch their finances and have greater control over their purchases,” wrote Apur Shah, Senior Director Global Pay Later at PayPal, in an email.

“There is no one size fits all when it comes to making purchases — and the same is true for the buy now pay later industry,” adds Shah. “We believe having a full portfolio of buy now, pay later plans — in addition to our PayPal Credit revolving credit product — allows consumers more choice to select the option that best suits their preferences and budgeting needs.”
