And sales make it even more attractive.

The percentage of Australians who have or would consider using BNPL rises dramatically to 64% when it’s for an online sales event like Boxing Day or Black Friday. And again, it’s Gen Y pushing for instalments, with 4 in 5 (81%) seeking BNPL on sales.

And that preference is growing with Australians increasingly viewing sales as the norm. We rarely, if ever, pay full price. With 67% of Australians always looking for sales or discount codes. Even when in store, 40% of us check online prices to make sure we’re getting the best deal.
