In our fast-changing world, certainty is hard to pin down. One minute a customer can afford to pay you in full and on time. The next, their income might drop, and they fall into arrears. How do you support your customers when they need it most while protecting your business from loss?

Consumer data can be collected or captured when consumers provide their details to an organisation. For example, they give their address when they purchase something online, and this is basic consumer data.
Organisations can collect their own consumer data, so long as this process complies with data collection regulations. In addition, they can buy consumer data from reputable data collection agencies.
Consumer data is important because it helps an organisation or business make decisions based on fact and customer understanding. For example, consumer data can tell you which products and services are most popular with your customers, so you can develop more products like them.
Consumer credit is a kind of debt taken on by an individual in order to buy products or services. It is usually unsecured debt.
One example of consumer credit is taking out a repayment plan for a household item, such as a sofa, where the consumer takes possession of the item but pays it off over time.
The advantage of consumer credit is that it enables consumers to make large purchases without having to have large amounts of money to hand.
Consumer credit is available from the providers of goods and services after putting in place arrangements to offer credit via a credit provider.
In the UK and some other places, organisations that offer credit to consumers must be licenced to do so by the Financial Conduct Authority.
According to our research, consumer debt topped $US14 trillion in the US in 2019.
The regulator for consumer credit firms in the UK is the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).
You need to be approved by the FCA to offer loans or credit to consumers.
The Consumer Credit Act regulates purchases made by credit cards and protects consumers when they take out a loan and hire agreements.
