The UK markets purchasing habits are changing
The Buy Now, Pay Later (BNPL) market has seen remarkable growth in the United Kingdom over the past few years.

More than 60% of BNPL transactions in the UK involve paying in 3 or 4 installments, demonstrating the appeal of this flexible payment method.
What is Pay in 4?
Pay in 4 is a popular payment option within the Buy Now, Pay Later (BNPL) market that provides consumers with increased flexibility and convenience when making purchases. This payment model allows shoppers to split the cost of their purchase into four equal installments. When a customer chooses Pay in 4, they typically make an initial payment at the time of purchase, followed by three more payments at regular intervals over the course of a few weeks. The appeal of Pay in 4 lies in its simplicity and transparency, as consumers can budget more effectively by spreading out their payments without incurring interest charges.
