Oh dear, another great idea was launched here in The Netherlands. The new trend is to let people take the items they want and make them pay later from shops. Most of the Dutch do not pay with their credit cards, it’s basically the same principle. We have debit cards here. But then the amount due is extracted from your bank account immediately. This also causes an increase in sales around the end of the month when it’s payday. Retailers now hope to spread and increase their income by offering extended payment, just like customers are offered in online shops. Marketeers have decided that people “want and expect” this “service”.
The spendthrifts and shopaholics will cheer, I guess.
