Buy now, pay later” can be a convenient payment method. But if you don’t factor the recurring payments into your budget, it can get messy. This is especially true if you’re juggling multiple buy now, pay later plans on top of other debts. The credit inquiries that some lenders conduct when you apply for any type of credit don’t always offer visibility into buy now, pay later plans you may hold with different companies, so it may be possible to bite off more than you can chew. Equifax, one of the three major credit bureaus, is aiming to change that in the first quarter of 2022 by formalizing a process for including buy now, pay later information on credit reports. “Part of the push here is to support responsible lending,” says Mark Luber, chief product officer for U.S. information solutions at Equifax. “When a company lends, they want to make sure the consumer can handle that new credit account and can in fact pay it back.” An unpaid buy now, pay later balance could get … [Read more...] about Millennial Money: What to do if you buy now, can’t pay later
