Over the last two years, the buy now pay later (BNPL) segment has recorded strong growth in the global market. With its success among the merchants and consumers, several Fintech firms have entered the space to gain market share in the flourishing industry. While the industry has recorded strong growth globally, it is still in its nascent stage of development in South Korea.

Notably, in South Korea, Fintech firms, along with e-commerce marketplaces, have already joined the BNPL bandwagon and are gaining increasing traction from consumers as the popularity of the deferred payment method continues to grow in the country. Amid this growing demand for BNPL payment methods in South Korea, more and more players, including global and domestic, are expected to enter the industry to capture market share.

The presence of global as well as domestic players in the BNPL segment is expected to further drive innovation in the space, which will subsequently lead to more growth in the industry over the next three to four years.

E-commerce and Fintech firms are using BNPL as a marketing tool to gain more traffic for their services in South Korea

To build customer loyalty and drive more traffic for their services in South Korea, e-commerce and Fintech firms are using BNPL as a marketing tool in the country. Coupang and Naver Financial have already launched the services for South Koreans and are expecting higher transaction volumes through the payment method. With the rising adoption of such solutions, more Fintech firms in the country are launching the service to gain traffic for their services.

In March 2022, Toss Bank, the digital-only bank in South Korea, launched a BNPL service for its users. After the launch of the BNPL service, the firm claimed to have experienced a rise in Toss Payments and rising monthly payment amounts.

Along with these players, traditional finance firms, such as credit card companies, are also actively offering the BNPL service in South Korea.

In July 2022, Hyundai Card started offering BNPL service to its customers in South Korea. On the other hand, KB Kookmin Card is planning to introduce the BNPL service in partnership with Danal. Similarly, Shinhan Bank is also considering a BNPL launch in partnership with NHN Payco.

As the payment method continues to gain strong traction among South Koreans, the publisher expects more and more firms across different industries to use BNPL as a marketing tool for driving their growth and building customer loyalty.

Global BNPL providers are eyeing an expansion in the South Korean market amid increasing customer demand

In South Korea, BNPL has gained widespread popularity and is expected to gain further traction over the next three to four years. To capitalize on this high-growth potential, global firms are eyeing an expansion in the South Korean BNPL industry.

Atome, one of the leading BNPL players in the Southeast Asian market, announced that the firm is eyeing an expansion in the South Korean BNPL industry by the end of 2022. This will make Atome one of the BNPL providers that cover most of the markets in Asia. The Singapore-headquartered firm has a presence in Indonesia, Vietnam, the Philippines, Malaysia, Thailand, Hong Kong, China, Japan, and Taiwan. The firm has partnered with 10,000 merchants, has over 20 million users in Asia, and has disbursed US$1 billion in over 15 million transactions.

Notably, Atome is not the only Singapore-based BNPL provider planning to expand in South Korea.

In November 2021, Pace, another Singapore-based BNPL firm, announced that the firm is planning to expand its presence in South Korea after raising a US$40 million funding round.

As the BNPL market in South Korea continues to mature and grow over the next three to four years, the publisher expects more global firms to launch their operations in the country and tap into the growing demand for deferred payment services among consumers.
