A Growing Trend
Globally, installment payments represented $1.2 trillion in payment volume in 2017 and have been growing 15% year-over-year, twice as fast as credit cards.(1) Growth is fueled by consumer demand, as consumers are looking for flexible payment options. For example, 60% of millennials in the U.S. said that they are interested in POS financing for large online purchases.(2) Consumers value flexible payment options on their card. For example, in Brazil, approximately 50 percent of all credit payment volume is already on installments.(3)
