It’s our ever-present goal at Allegro to be the leading provider of innovation, a strategy which helped us gain trust among our clients, including over 13 million active buyers. That’s why we launched the Allegro Pay pilot a year ago as an answer to client needs and it only gained traction. Both the value of originated loans and the high promoter score confirm that it goes well with online customers. We see Allegro Pay as one of the levers for our future growth, as we’re certain it gives customers more flexibility and safety - just what we strive for at our group. Allegro Pay is reasonably shaped for every individual customer, so sign up, enjoy the benefits, and prowl for special offers during the upcoming Smart! Week with a secure cash cushion at hand.”

It also boasted a loan balance of PLN 231 million in the second quarter - a 74% increase versus the first three months of the year, with the expected credit losses at 2.1%. Up-to-date clients praised the new functionality by granting it a net promoter score, or NPS, of 89 after the second quarter - among top-tier industry players. Ensuring client safety, the value of resources that Allegro Pay provides is largely based on a given client’s transaction history.
