Financial services have undergone a deep transformation in recent years, one such change being the rise of banking-as-a-service (BaaS). In Europe, BaaS is growing at a significant rate and is expected to grow 3 times in the next few years. But what does this look like in France and how does it compare to the rest of Europe?

With consumer attitudes and spending habits evolving, BNPL is being used increasingly on everyday items such as clothing and groceries, rather than the more traditional larger ticket items seen in the past. Who are the trailblazers and what will the long-term look like?
