The rising popularity of buy now pay later options

Buy Now Pay Later installment programs are becoming increasingly popular. Promoting buy now, pay later messaging on your site at key points of the shopping journey can help boost average order value (AOV)⁵ and encourage customers to buy more⁶ — and more often.⁷ 

In fact, 1 in 4 online shoppers in the UK² already use buy now, pay later (BNPL). And it’s a particularly common online payment method for millennials and Gen Z.

So why not allow your ticket-buyers to split up payments? Simply set up PayPal Pay Later in your Ticket Tailor account, and your ticket-buyers will be able to make installment payments on small and large value purchases.

5 reasons why you should be offering ‘buy now, pay later’ at checkout.

  1. PayPal offers Pay Later at no extra cost to you. It’s a win-win!

  4. Grow loyalty – 63% of customers are more likely to buy from you again if you offer Pay Later options³ – which is great if you plan to run multiple events. 
  5. PayPal Pay Later can be easy to promote on your website and at check out, as it’s a brand your customers already know and trust.⁸

More ways to pay: Introducing Venmo for US-based PayPal users

If your PayPal account is US-based you’ll also now be able to offer Venmo as part of your Ticket Tailor checkout (at no additional cost), allowing your ticket-buyers to easily share the cost of tickets with friends and family.
