It is wallet friendlyIf you do opt for paint, choose a quality brand: it will last longer, create a better finish and the overall cost won’t be much more than if you were to use an inferior product.
Similar to paint, cheap wallpaper is a not economical. It is thin and more prone to damage. In some cases if your walls aren’t in good enough condition to be painted (without being re-plastered), a good quality, thick wallpaper would be able to cover defects in the walls.

It is generally cheaper to paint a room than it is to wallpaper it, but the lifespan of wallpaper last longer, which in turn even out the cost over time.
It is more durable compared to paintPaint can chip and peel off easily and will need to be touched up once in a while. In rooms with high moisture levels a waterproof paint should be used to prevent damage occurring. Generally a room will need to be repainted every 3-5 years, sometimes more frequently in high traffic areas.
Cheap paints are usually low in opacity which requires 3 coats rather than the usual 2 coats from better quality paint.
If cheap paint is used, you would require more coats to achieve the desired finish and would end up paying more for labor if you engage a painter or installer. If you choose to go for paint, make sure to choose a good quality brand that can last longer and have a better finish as the overall cost would not be significantly more than if you were to use a inferior product.
