Online payment options

Variety of online payment options no longer the solution for businesses to encourage customers to pay

To ensure that customers make payments, 42% of finance professionals deployed a range of payment options in 2019. Over the years, this has proven not to be the solution for non-paying customers. In 2020, only 33% were using this tactic, in 2021 it was 27% and now only one in five (20%) companies are doing so. This is evident from the FinTech Barometer, a study of the financial status of Dutch companies conducted over the past five years by Fintech company Visma | Onguard.
