While many buy now, pay later options are limited to smaller order sizes, Splitit's flexibility makes it ideal for higher-ticket items and larger order values. The data shows that Splitit shoppers spent $1,179 on average, a 17% increase from Splitit's $1,008 average order value (AOV). Black Friday shoppers also have chosen to spread payments over an average of 8.45 monthly installments, a 24% increase from its overall average of 6.81 installments.

"Our data shows that consumers are happy to spend this holiday season despite inflationary pressures. Splitit gives consumers greater flexibility to manage their finances by leveraging existing credit without taking out new financing to complete their holiday purchases," said Nandan Sheth, CEO of Splitit. "The gift Splitit brings for retailers is having complete control over the entire shopper experience you don't get with legacy BNPL providers. Splitit's white-label approach, embedded in the existing customer journey, ensures brand consistency while driving loyalty and repeat purchases."

A few key highlights from the big holiday shopping week include:
  • Fine Jewelry was the second-highest category the past two years, accounting for 18% of MSV in 2022. It also had the highest AOV of all categories at $4,117.93 – just over $2,000 higher than the next category.
  • Fitness and Outdoor remained No. 3 with 16% of total MSV but saw a 71% increase compared to 2021. The category also saw a 9% increase in AOV, reaching $2,072.62 over an average of 11.89 installments.
  • Down from the top spot in 2021, Home Furnishings totaled 15% of Splitit's purchases, with an AOV of $1,107.97 over an average of 8.5 installments. Both numbers are on par with last year's averages.
  • Health and beauty purchases rounded out the top five, comprising 9% of all sales. However, the category has the most significant jump in total MSV from last year, increasing 253% overall, with an AOV of $1,513.51 and an average of 8.86 installments.
