BNI Establishes Consumer Credit Partnership with Traveloka PayLater

One of the latest payment methods in Indonesia, pay later, is currently available on several online platforms including Traveloka, with the aim to make it easier for users to access point of purchase financing to fulfil their needs. Pay later allows credit approved users to transact and pay for it at a later time without using a credit card. Traveloka introduced its Traveloka PayLater service in 2018 and has seen strong engagement as this payment method allows its users to make better travel and lifestyle purchase decisions.
