The BNPL payment industry in UAE has recorded strong growth over the last four quarters, supported by increased ecommerce penetration. The robust Internet infrastructure coupled with the surging e-commerce market and digital payment ecosystems has supported the growth of the buy now pay later (BNPL) industry in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). With more consumers shopping online in 2022, compared to 2021, the trend has translated into a higher adoption of BNPL schemes across the Emirati region. According to the publisher,, over 37% of consumers have used the BNPL payment schemes in the UAE in 2022. This is much higher, as compared to the 24% who used the BNPL options a year before. Emirati consumers are using BNPL schemes across a broader set of product categories With credit card rates rising in the UAE, consumers in increasing numbers are flocking towards the zero-interest BNPL schemes offered by fintech firms such as Tabby and Tamara in the country. Amid the growing adoption, the BNPL schemes are finding their way to new and a broader set of product categories. Consumers are no longer just using the payment option to buy smartphones. They are even willing to purchase airline tickets through the BNPL payment method. Consequently, providers like Cashew are partnering with travel partners, thereby allowing travellers to access BNPL credit up to Dh 50,000 on airfares. With the willingness of consumers to fund more of their purchases across categories, consumer behavior is opening doors to new industries for BNPL providers in the Emirates. Consequently, the publisher expects providers to enter the travel, education, insurance, and healthcare market over the next three to four years in the UAE. This will keep supporting the industry growth and the adoption among consumers from the short to medium-term perspective. Domestic BNPL firms are expanding their regional operations to accelerate growth rate amid rising adoption among consumers Amid rising competition in the domestic market, UAE-based BNPL providers are now targeting growth in other regional countries to drive the next growth phase of their deferred payment service. In September 2022, Tabby, the Emirati-based leading BNPL provider, announced that the firm is expanding operations into the Egyptian market. In the UAE, the firm works with many leading brands, including Faces, In Your Shoe, Ariika, Marcqa, Floward, and Lacoste, among others. With more than two million active shoppers in the Middle East region, the firm has decided to expand in Egypt after securing US$275 million in funding, since inception, from global and regional investors. In October 2022, the firm also entered into a strategic collaboration with YouGotaGift, one of the leading digital gift card marketplaces in the region. Under the collaboration, the two firms will allow consumers and shoppers to buy gift cards using the BNPL payment method offered by Tabby. The partnership comes at a time when the year-end holiday and gifting season is about to commence in the Emirates. Thus, the publisher expects the service to garner traction among consumers from the short-term perspective. Firms are forging strategic alliances to launch new BNPL solutions in the Emirates With the surging cost of living and rise in prices of products, consumers are finding it difficult to fund their purchases.

Under the collaboration, Cashew will offer BNPL solutions on device financing for du's customers. This will enable consumers to purchase devices, at zero-additional cost, which were previously out of their budget.
