DivideBuy BNPL in the U.K.

Among more than a dozen providers of buy now, pay later (BNPL) installment loans in the U.K. is DivideBuy, which recently moved its POS credit technology to the cloud prior to a planned expansion of its customer base. 

DivideBuy’s credit plug-in integrates with shopping carts that operate on Shopify, Magento, WooCommerce and other ecommerce platforms. The company also maintains direct connections with more than 500 small and midsized merchants in the U.K. The new cloud-based technology supports activating BNPL accounts from QR codes.

DivideBuy received $378 million (£300 million) in debt and equity funding from Davidson Kempner Capital Management in September 2021. It will use those funds to pursue growth opportunities among larger retailers that sell luxury goods and to launch new products, including revolving credit and direct-to-consumer personal loans.

Last year, DivideBuy financed $88 million (£70 million) in BNPL loans. It expects to grow 30% this year and plans to reach $378 million (£300 million) by the end of 2023.

DivideBuy BNPL is a no-fee product. Other providers of BNPL installment loans in the U.K. include Klarna, My Argos card, Clearpay (Afterpay), Laybuy, Openpay, AppToPay, PayPal, PayI8r, Monzo, Revolut (pending), PollenPay, Tranch, Curve, Scalapay and Zilch.


Teresa Byrne is Chief Commercial Officer at DivideBuy in Newcastle-under-Lyme, U.K.,,
