ABC The Business: Afterpay and Zip could face tougher future under new laws

ABC The Business: Afterpay and Zip could face tougher future under new laws

I joined ABC’s The Business to discuss Buy Now Pay Later (BNPL) businesses including AfterPay and Zip. We always thought these companies were mediocre – they were over-valued, with unsustainable growth and increasing competition.

Way back in 2018 I warned investors about the BNPL space and continued to do so in 2019, and 2020, questioning how long the euphoria would last. Fast forward to today, BNPL providers are facing a raft of new regulations. Is their future now even more concerning?
