Q.1) Website question from
i think for some online store / e-commerce they already have their own BNPL payment method for their users. so how bePay will compete their own (merchant who have) payment method? or you will offer bePay to online store who not already have BNPL payment method? or you will your very own online merchant store too?
Today, BNPL is becoming an emerging trend among Gen Z and Millenials in America, Europe, Australia, and certain parts of Asia when it comes to shopping payment. BNPL programs have now been integrated into several large retailers' POS systems, including Walmart, Amazon, and Target. However, major BNPL businesses such as Afterpay, Klarna, and Affirm currently only accept normal fiats for installment financing.
bePAY is currently the pioneer in promoting BNPL programs with Crypto E-Commerce, NFT Marketplace, Metavers... Our services will be made available to our 10,000 merchants in over ten countries. bePAY's BNPL solution is also available to merchants that want to keep up with the fast-paced growth of crypto, blockchain, and DeFi and want to provide a different payment option to their customers at the point of sale.
As previously said, the market is enormous, and bePAY has a lot of potentials to become a viable product and expand swiftly in the future.

Therefore, the potential of the project to skyrocket quickly is totally possible. With the small investment at the beginning, you can receive back big and promising returns.
