Retail and Buy Now Pay Later White Paper

The second in a new series of sector-specific white papers, with in-depth commentary on the challenges facing today's businesses and their customers in today’s economic environment.

Consumer sentiment and household finances have both taken a battering in recent months, forcing changes in patterns of consumption. Adapting quickly to this transition, while catering to the continued emphasis on sustainability is a huge challenge for retail businesses.

In the white paper, we highlight key themes that will dominate the sector across Europe this year and offer thoughts on how retail businesses can meet these challenges:

  • Falling customer confidence and spending cutbacks
  • Parents increasingly forced to use credit to buy things for their children
  • Sensitivity to environmental and social issues around consumption
  • The use of Buy Now, Pay Later finance to fund purchases

As a business, Intrum understands that reliable cash flow, ethical debt collection and sound credit management are key to success. We’re using our expertise to help clients and their customers weather these economic storms.

Our close relationships with the retail, e-commerce and Buy Now Pay Later industries have enabled us to witness the increasing financial struggles that many of their customers face in today's rising cost of living.
