Tonight: Buy Now, Pay Later? (ITV Thurs 20 Jan 2022)

Published

Buy Now, Pay Later?: It’s estimated over a third of British adults have used a Buy Now, Pay Later payment company to make an online purchase.

While the firms themselves say their services allow shoppers to manage their finances by spreading their payments over time, interest-free, critics argue this new form of credit means users too easily and too often end up in debt. Chris Choi explores the rise of this global shopping phenomenon, and asks what regulations might be needed to better protect consumers.

Airdate: Thursday 20 January 2022 at 7.30pm on ITV.
