Expert’s remarks on Apple’s BNPL program

According to Casey Newton – the Founder and Editor of “Platformer” – Apple Pay Later has the potential to disrupt the BNPL space. Speaking with CNBC’s Contessa Brewer on “Power Lunch”, he said:

There’s long been a question about whether buy now pay later services deserve to be companies or are they better off as features on a larger platform. Given how ubiquitous Apple Pay is already, this could eat up the lion share of that market.

Apple also introduced “tap to pay” on Monday. Its debut in BNPL pushed shares of Affirm Holdings Inc, one of the world’s largest buy now pay later companies, down over 5.0% this afternoon. Apple’s WWDC concludes on Friday, June 10th.
