Deferred Payments for Mercari US: Mercari Members Share Their Thoughts on the Business Tie-up Between Mercari US and Zip #MercariDays
On the morning of September 1, 2021, Mercari Group company Mercari US concluded a partnership with Zip Co., Ltd. to launch a deferred payment service (a “Buy Now, Pay Later” or “BNPL” service)!
This will finally bring deferred payment to the US service, with deferred payment having been available on Mercari JP’s service for several years now.
The feature is super easy to use, as well. Users only need to select “Zip” as their payment method when purchasing an item. This will not only give US users more options when purchasing items on Mercari, but Zip’s state-of-the-art deferred payment service (allowing for payments in up to four installments) does not impact users’ credit scores.
For this Mercan article, we took this opportunity to get some comments from members involved in the project.
Mercari US continues to surprise us with new projects like “Mercari Local,” which was just announced recently.
We’ll be watching closely to see how this BNPL feature changes the Mercari experience for our US users.
And on that note, we’re currently looking for new members to join Mercari US! Check the link below for more information about applying!
See you next time for more #MercariDays!
