Furthermore, United States Buy Now Pay Later Market is one of the most emerging markets that grow continuously owing to the fast integration of new technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), cloud computing, and others.

Aside from subscription payments, the company is allowing its offering to be used for preordered items, with the consumer able to pay in four installments once the product is shipped. As of November 2021, Afterpay had partnered with 100,000 retailers and had nearly 10.5 million active users on its platform in North America.
Rising Partnerships between US BNPL Firms and Retailers to Boost In-Store Sales
Firms are forming strategic alliances with more retailers to increase the total volume and transaction value of BNPL purchases. These strategic alliances also enable consumers to use the payment method at more online and offline stores across the country. Afterpay will enter into a strategic partnership with Belk, the Southeastern regional department store, in December 2021. Belk will allow both online and in-store customers to pay for their purchases using the Afterpay BNPL payment method as part of the collaboration. Belk has also reported a 50% increase in average order values for customers who use the payment method since its partnership with Afterpay.
