What are the main news, trends and innovations in your market or sector?
Over the past few years, payment in instalments has become an indispensable service for French and European consumers when it comes to making a major purchase. But practices are evolving rapidly, with sometimes contradictory trends that present retailers with a number of challenges: inflation, regulatory changes to provide a better framework for offers and reduce the risk of over-indebtedness, the desire for more responsible consumption patterns... Understanding the trends in this changing environment is a key challenge for retailers, if they are to remain competitive and meet their customers' expectations.
