Affirm, a buy now, pay later (BNPL) company, has expanded its partnership with Amazon Pay. As part of the new agreement, any Amazon Pay merchant in the U.S. can now offer Affirm as a payment option to their customers.
Affirm's BNPL service allows customers to split the cost of a purchase into four equal payments, made every two weeks. There are no late fees or interest charges, as long as the payments are made on time.
“We know customers want convenient and flexible payment options—whether they’re checking out on Amazon.com or using Amazon Pay,” said Omar Soudodi, director of Amazon Pay. “With Affirm on Amazon Pay, merchants can offer a pay-over-time option to their existing customers and have another way to reach new customers.”
To use Affirm, customers simply select it as their payment method at checkout. They will then be prompted to enter some basic information, such as their name, email address, and the amount they would like to borrow. Affirm will then make a decision in real time, and customers will know if they are approved immediately.
The expansion of Affirm's partnership with Amazon Pay is a major win for the BNPL company. Amazon is the largest online retailer in the world, and its partnership with Affirm will give the company access to a vast new customer base.
It is also a sign of the growing popularity of BNPL services. BNPL services have become increasingly popular in recent years, as they offer a more flexible way to pay for purchases. According to a recent report by eMarketer, the global BNPL market is expected to reach $1 trillion by 2025.
The expansion of Affirm's partnership with Amazon Pay is a major step forward for the BNPL company. It will give Affirm access to a vast new customer base, and it will help the company to continue to grow its business.
