Split payments available for e-commerce
One of the most important news on payments in 2020, which will continue for the next few years, is the possibility of split the payments when you buy something online.
Various startups are entering the landscape and the big players are already following the trend.

All these platforms require to sign up and the use of a credit card. The purchase will therefore never be "transparent" for the user who will necessarily have to enter his data in order to complete the transaction.
The money is paid by the platform to the seller who will immediately have the amount available. It is responsibility of the platform to recover the various splits and decide whether or not to accept the payments.

Let's quickly see the most used solutions to date, the costs are indicative and they can be different based on the country:


American company. The European brand of Afterpay. Allows 30-day deferred payment and/or 3 interest-free splits.
