Zilch partners with Experian for responsible lending in BNPL sector

Thursday 7 April 2022 12:46 CET | News

UK-based fintech Unicorn Zilch has announced a new partnership with Experian, a global information services company, for reciprocal reporting of Buy Now, Pay Later credit information.

Zilch uses a combination of CRA data, Open Banking data, and its in-house behavioural data to generate active consumer lending decisions, creating a complete profile of a customer’s affordability to take on extra BNPL credit for further purchases. 

Zilch’s latest partnership with Experian allows for reciprocal reporting of payment plans to the CRA’s data set and focuses on customers’ financial health to avoid financial burdens that could come from overspending. It is designed to provide both companies with a thorough insight into their customers’ spending behaviours, propose customised lending solutions, and rewarding over 2 million active clients for their responsible sharing while building their credit scores.

The Unicorn is also one of the first BNPL companies to receive a Consumer Credit License with the FCA in 2020.
