Thursday 16 March 2023 13:29 CET | News

UK-based fintech Hokodo has partnered with France-based international banking group BNP Paribas to launch a B2B Buy Now, Pay Later (BNPL) solution for B2B commerce businesses.


As detailed in the press release, Hokodo and BNP Paribas are set to provide a complete B2B payments solution, and the addition of the B2B BNPL offering has the aim of enabling large multinational corporates to provide their business customers with payment alternatives.

B2B commerce and what the BNPL solution entails

Following the increase in B2B digital sales, B2B sellers have a need for a simplified order-to-cash experience. The announcement highlights that the requirements of these sellers are related to their wanting to be paid on time, without having to worry about credit or fraud risk, while simultaneously being enabled to provide buyers with a hassle-free purchasing experience and advantageous credit terms through any channel. This is believed to have a positive impact on sales, as it helps encourage repeat business and increase the average basket.

The B2B BNPL solution provides a fully digital experience and can be integrated into existing checkout systems via API in an easy manner. It helps provide instant buyer approval through a real-time credit decision process and an extensive acceptance rate due to the increasingly configurable models, which can be adapted to the activity and client typology of the B2B seller.
