Another Buy Now, Pay Later FinTech is launching in the UK

PollenPay, a new UK FinTech, is preparing for launch in the buy now, pay later space.

In Brief:

The business has been founded in Manchester. 

It will, like other BNPL providers, offer consumers installment payment options with no interest fees. 

Customers who don’t pay on time will be charged, but the company says it’s possible to amend payment schedules.
