Monthly installment payment plans

Paying upfront for large purchases can be challenging for many trade customers trying to maintain a steady cash flow.

In response to unstable supply chains for intermediate goods and projected cost rises, many companies attempted to increase their stockpiling last year, resulting in a rise in demand for short-term business loans1.

However, not only are bank loan applications time-consuming and onerous for buyers, they also have an adverse impact on buyers’ credit score. With many buyers struggling to get approval for a bank loan and lending standards expected to further tighten in 20232, it will become even more difficult for many businesses to purchase what they need for their business.

B2B trade payments is a growing point of frustration for buyers – 82% of all buyers now expect a more B2C-like buying experience3 with more flexible payment terms. A 2020 study found that only 20% of medium and 25% of large online online shops offer installment payments4.

While merchants want to offer more payment flexibility for their customers, they worry about operational burden, cost and the increasing risk of payment defaults and fraud.

Thankfully there is a better way.

After successfully launching Mondu 6 month Installments in October 2022, we’re thrilled to announce Mondu now offers 3, 6 and 12 monthly installments.
