Hans Langenhuizen, CEO of in3 commented: “We’re thrilled to have secured this funding round. It is testament to the scale and growth of our proposition in the BNPL community. We will be expanding further in the Netherlands through the partnership with Mollie and plan to launch in Germany soon. Over the past year, we have invested in our tech stack and team to prepare for the next phase of the business. The new funds will help us process transactions on a larger scale, both online and in the physical stores. We’re grateful to all our investors as we enter our growth phase.”

On the partnership with Mollie, Hans Langenhuizen stated: “This partnership presents a significant growth opportunity for us to expand our offer and help more consumers across the country and region in time. Mollie accounts for a large share of the online payment traffic in the Netherlands. I am sure this collaboration will be a success for both parties. We already have healthy partnerships with various payment service providers, including Worldline, making it very easy for merchants to offer our product. An important part of the landscape that we were missing was Mollie.”

Ken Serdons, Chief Commercial Officer of Mollie commented: “Consumers don’t always have the financial means to buy what they need at that moment. By giving more flexibility with BNPL, the conversion and average order value can be increased. We are excited to partner with in3 to offer an alternative, interest-free BNPL payment method, where payment to our merchants is guaranteed. In addition, in3 also attaches great importance to the importance of localization by offering iDEAL, which is an important core value of Mollie. We look forward to exploring similar opportunities in Germany and other European countries together with in3.”

Unlike other BNPL payment methods, in3 chooses not to earn money from the consumer. Hans Langenhuizen said: “The BNPL market is growing rapidly but we are mindful of protecting consumers against over-credit. This starts when placing an order where we perform an advanced check within a second.”

Industry sources predict that The BNPL payment in the Netherlands is expected to grow by 74.8% in 2022 reaching $7.6b. This growth has been spurred by businesses moving online and by the growth of eCommerce, more generally. The pandemic certainly helped propel the move online. Looking ahead, the BNPL payment adoption is expected to grow steadily at a CAGR of 32.8% over the next 6 years. The BNPL Gross Merchandise Value in the country will increase from $4.3b in 2021 to reach $41.7b million in 2028.
