The dangers of buy now pay later sites

The prevalence of buy now, pay later websites has become a concern for me. I believe it can become a bigger issue than credit card debt.

I worry that this is going to be a huge problem in the future, especially with our young people. There’s a huge percentage of people who are used to having everything at their fingertips and having to pay for something in installments may seem to be a sweet deal because there’s no interest anyway.  However, there are possible hidden dangers that we will look at in the podcast.
