This year more than ever, consumers are looking to stick to their budget when holiday shopping. Affirm is a more flexible and transparent alternative to credit cards that makes gift-giving affordable by letting shoppers pay for gifts at their own pace, without late or hidden fees. Shoppers can choose payment schedules ranging from six weeks to 48 months for purchases at 6,500+ top U.S. merchants, including adidas, Walmart, Peloton, Williams Sonoma, Casper Sleep and Target. By selecting Affirm at checkout, consumers find out if they’re approved in seconds, without affecting their credit. Once approved, shoppers are shown the total cost of their purchase upfront and can split their purchase into terms that work for their budget. Unlike other payment options, Affirm doesn’t hide “gotchas” in the fine print – what you see is what you pay.
- There is no cost to apply to use Affirm and once approved, paying for a purchase with Affirm is simple and transparent. For some retailers, Affirm offers interest rates as low as 0% APR, which means there is no additional cost other than the product itself. At times, there is interest, which varies depending on your credit history and the pay-over-time program you choose. Either way, the total cost is always shown upfront and payments are broken out for you — no tricks or complex calculations. The amount owed never changes and there are never late or hidden fees.
- Consumers can shop online or in-store with Affirm at more than 6,500 retail merchants such as Walmart, adidas, Peloton, Target, Warby Parker, Dyson, Williams Sonoma and more. Payment options through Affirm are provided by these lending partners: www.affirm.com/lenders.
