Furthermore, Visa and Tender Retail, a provider of middleware payment solutions for enterprise retail, are aiming to bring Installments “to their suite of retailers looking to expand in-store payment options and unlock untapped spending power.”
The card giant’s move comes after research showed that shoppers spent more and more shoppers completed their purchases if an Installments payment option was available at checkout.
According to a report by Deutsche Bank, 46 % of customers who use an Installments or Buy Now, Pay Later (BNPL) option at checkout, said their business would have been lost without the option, while 41% said they would have delayed their purchase.
“We’re excited to work with these organizations to provide eligible credit cardholders with more choice and flexibility in the way they want to pay,” said Brian Weiner, vice-president and head of product and digital, Visa Canada. “Together, we’re helping Canadian merchants stay competitive and ahead of ever-changing consumer preferences.”
