Understanding affordability

While there are payment choices for consumers looking to buy everything from fashionable t-shirts to the latest gadgets, there is significant demand for solutions that can cover higher-value essential costs while minimising the immediate impact on household budgets.

The Aussie Household Threshold Report provides valuable information for merchants and retailers to help better understand the affordability thresholds where budgets start becoming stretched.

It will also help them understand the kinds of services and products people would like to be able to pay for over time, plus the payment methods they prefer. The report also includes expert commentary from QuickFee Australia MD Bruce Coombes and Tribel Advisory CEO Jayson Walker.
