Buy-now-pay-later platforms gain popularity in purchasing everyday goods

Implications - Where layaway-type payment plans have traditionally been used to buy larger items like home appliances, this model is now being used for online purchases of things such as flights and clothing. For credit-averse Millennials, in particular, this shift means that consumers are able to debit the purchase today and pay for it in installments as funds become available. Solutions like these are especially important as consumption habits change and Millennial consumers continue to engage with brands that align with their core values and lifestyle preferences.
