October 2022 - Budgetary arbitration and financing of purchases by the end of 2022
The inflationary context is leading to budgetary arbitrages on a large number of consumer goods. The use of credit to finance consumption on a one-off basis has become common practice, and split payments are expected to be a very popular solution by the end of the year. While consumers trust credit organisations, they remain vigilant about the use of credit.See the results
June 2022 - Boom of the second-hand market in Europe
It is a certainty: Europeans have become attentive to responsible consumption. In this fundamental movement, the durability of products will become an essential criterion in 2022, as well as price, driven by the economic context. The second-hand market has gained 50% in popularity in one year and 1 in 2 Europeans would like to buy even more this year. To accelerate this trend, price, trust and associated services, particularly in terms of payment, are the key levers.See the results
