Alchemy launches Buy Now Pay Later lending platform to turn every retailer into a FinTech business

According to Allied Market Research, the BNPL market is currently a $100 billion market. It is expected to grow to a 4 trillion dollars market over this decade, growing at a compound annual growth rate of 45%.

Buy Now Pay Later is a short-term financing option that allows merchants and small businesses to sell their products and services without accepting full payment at checkout.

Why is BNPL becoming a popular tool for consumers?

There are two main benefits for consumers to use BNPL. First of all, BNPL options often carry no interest or fees. Consumers pay the same price for the product but pay it back over time.

Second, not all consumers have a credit card or credit available to spend on their credit card. If the consumer has exhausted their credit card but still needs to buy a product or service, the best option is to use this financing option on the retailer’s website or in physical stores.

identity verification

Alchemy’s technology provides passive identity verification so that the identity of online consumers is verified and approved. Personally identifiable information such as name, address, phone number and email is all that is needed by Alchemy’s platform to verify consumer identity.

Payment management

Alchemy’s BNPL allows merchants to process installments and installments over time until the contract is fulfilled. We use the merchant’s existing payment provider to process credit and debit card payments.

Merchant portal

Each merchant will also have access to their own portal to easily browse all their BNPL customers, total payments collected and outstanding balances in one place.

The portal is served as a one-stop-shop to give traders visibility across their entire BNPL portfolio.

Customer portal and communication

Customers can easily access their payment information, add additional bank accounts and credit cards to continue processing their remaining installments.

This portal is for consumers to clearly understand their remaining obligations and make it easy for them to pay overtime until those obligations are met.
