Affirm, a more transparent, flexible alternative to credit cards, announced it will exclusively power Shopify’s Shop Pay Installments in the United States. Starting later this year, Affirm’s buy now, pay later financing solution will be made available to eligible Shopify merchants in the U.S. who want to offer this flexible payment option to their customers. At checkout, approved Shop Pay customers will be able to split their total purchase amount into four equal, bi-weekly, interest-free payments. True to Affirm’s long-standing commitment to never charge late or hidden fees, customers will not be charged any additional fees.
“It’s critical for businesses to make it easy for their customers to buy from them. Shop Pay Installments helps our merchants offer their customers more payment choice and flexibility, while delivering a seamless checkout experience to boost conversion and overall sales,” said Kaz Nejatian, VP and GM of Shopify’s Financial Solutions Team. “We’re looking forward to partnering with Affirm to bring this powerful pay-over-time payment option to our merchants and their customers in the U.S., unlocking their ability to succeed and grow their businesses.”
Affirm and Shopify will begin testing in the coming months, with Shop Pay Installments expected to be made available to eligible U.S. merchants starting later this year.
