Key Regulatory trends impactful the BNPL Market
- BNPL Regulations
- Failure to Properly Disclose Terms and Conditions
- Strong Customer Authentication (SCA)
- BNPL Credit Approval Process
The BNPL explosion caught the attention of regulatory authorities. As competition grows fiercer, merchants are gaining more BNPL options, both in provider types (fintechs or banks) and in the economics of their business model. Merchants typically pay their BNPL partner a fixed fee representing a percentage of a consumer’s transaction, but as merchants gain bargaining power, they may seek to reduce this fee. On the other hand, if the BNPL becomes ubiquitous, persistently high fees could lead to regulatory scrutiny because the credit card processing fees merchants pay to card networks are lower.
