Zip and its Q1 FY22

Zip posted record quarterly revenue of $136.8 million, a jump of 89% year-on-year (YoY).

This was driven by a record quarterly transaction volume of $1.9 billion — up 101% YoY.

Unsurprisingly, the related transaction numbers also rose to a record of 14.7 million, an increase of 177% YoY.

Zip’s customer numbers increased to eight million, up 82% YoY.

Merchants on the platform rose to 55,200, a bump of 71% YoY.

App downloads — frequently tracked by analysts as an indirect measure of market share — remained ‘robust, according to Zip.

Zip US registered 1.5 million downloads (now 7.3 million in total). Zip ANZ registered 412,000 (now 3.7 million in total).

The above segment breakdown neatly captures the importance of the US market for BNPL players like Zip and Afterpay Ltd [ASX:APTas Australia becomes saturated.

This quarter also saw Zip complete a global rebrand in six counties with the US segment changing from Quadpay to Zip.

Financial Performance

The lack of movement in Zip’s share price may have something to do with the quarter-on-quarter growth, which might have disappointed some.

For instance, transaction volume in the saturated ANZ segment rose only 3% over the prior quarter.

Zip did note, however, that it maintained ‘market leading BNPL margins’ with revenue as a percentage of TTV standing at 7%.

Zip Managing Director and Global CEO Larry Diamond said:

Another very strong set of numbers for Q1 as momentum for the global Zip business continues, with more than 8 million users now on the platform.

The quarter saw the successful completion of the global rebrand, which now sees Zip unified under a single payments brand at checkout globally.

In support of the rebrand, we are running a major brand campaign across the US to increase awareness and acquisition. I was excited see the Zip brand take center stage in Times Square as we launched the campaign earlier this month.
