Amazon has partnered with Affirm to offer a flexible payment option at checkout, the companies said on Friday. The new feature is currently being tested, and Amazon says it “plans to make Affirm more widely available to its customers.”
The partnership now allows select Amazon customers to split the cost of purchases of $ 50 or more into monthly payments with Affirm, allowing buyers to buy items now and pay later. They will see the full cost up front and “will never pay more than they accept at the checkout,” according to a statement. There will be no late or hidden charges for customers.
“By partnering with Amazon, we are bringing the transparency, predictability and affordability that Affirm offers today to the millions of people who buy from Amazon.com in the United States,” said Eric Morse, senior vice president of Affirm sales, in the press release. “Offering Affirm’s alternative to credit cards also provides more payment choices and flexibility for Amazon consumers. “
