This section covers the major market trends shaping the MEA Buy Now Pay Later Services Market according to our research experts:

Growth in E-commerce in Middle East and Africa is increasing

People were concerned about purchasing online and inputting financial information on third-party websites before COVID. In the Middle East, cash-on-delivery (COD) helped solve this, but it also introduced new barriers to expansion. BNPL contributes to the solution. It allows buyers to "test before you buy" and relieves retailers of the collecting load. BNPL companies like Tamara have done a great job building trust and reassuring shoppers that BNPL is secure. It is said that there is a nearly 10% to 30% increase in conversion and a 30% to 85% increase in average order value in the Middle-East and Africa.


Growth of Gen Z population in the region will increase demand in BNPL services

Moreover, half of MEA citizens are under 30 - the world's greatest young population. Young people in the Middle-East and Africa deal with affordability, especially if they are paid monthly. BNPL has succeeded by letting Millennials and Generation Z buy low-cost, daily products like apparel and food while they wait for their paycheck. BNPL provides consumers with a short-term credit alternative that does not need them to develop balances or undergo credit checks. The transaction amount is simultaneously limited. People are migrating from credit cards to BNPL in droves. This is not a credit service for which consumers must apply; rather, it is a commodity offered on demand.
