Discover new research into how bad actors are targeting Buy Now Pay later (BNPL) operators, plus how operators can scale by using an effective identity verification solution.
With total global payments on pace to reach $680 billion by 2025, 2023 looks to be another landmark year for the Buy Now Pay Later (BNPL) sector. Customers can now use BNPL to buy anything from cleaning materials to high-tech products. U.S.-based customers use BNPL in four out of five cases, and European customers are not far behind. However, to sustain this strong and steady development, the sector needs to boost its efforts to combat the growing issue of identity fraud.
According to our most recent study, document fraud across financial services increased by 79% in the last year. Throughout 2022, this spike helped to increase the overall identity fraud rate by more than 1% a quarter, and there is no indication that this upward trend will abate.
BNPL providers are seen by organized fraud groups as especially alluring targets because their customer proposition is heavily based on a quick and seamless experience. However, the idea that business will always experience such a high level of identity fraud isn't set in stone. BNPL providers can now defend themselves against highly coordinated, persistent, and pervasive bad actors by utilizing AI-driven identity verification solutions.
