Lenders can seize opportunities with retail POS lending

**Point-of-sale financing as an alternative payment method is an expanding opportunity for lenders, as Pagaya’s President Sanjiv Das explains on “The Buzz” podcast.**

Auto lender and Pagaya partner Ally Financial predicts that point-of-sale financing will exceed $81 billion by 2030. Das describes this new category of loans as an exciting asset class that will revolutionize lending in the coming years.
