  1. Klarna is growing at a faster pace than other BNPL players, increasing to 14.6x its January 2020 volume as of July 2021. This growth comes at the expense of market leader AfterPay, which has been decreasing in its share of payment volume captured.
  2. Comparing per-user value for all brands, average BNPL frequency per user has maintained while spend per user has increased. Quadpay and Affirm lead the pack in value derived per user, perhaps in thanks to their partnerships with mainstream travel providers.
