Affirm, the payment network that empowers consumers and helps merchants drive growth, today announced the expansion of its relationship with Amazon to Canada, bringing increased payment flexibility and transparency to customers shopping on Amazon.ca. This payment option will be available during checkout to all eligible customers in both English and French within the next month.
“We’re always looking to enhance the paying experience for our customers, including how and when they can pay for their orders,”
“Introducing Affirm in Canada gives our customers another flexible payment option for their purchases.”
David Williams, Vice President of Amazon Payment Products.
Customers who choose Affirm as their method of payment at Amazon.ca’s checkout will experience a brief, free soft credit check that won’t affect their credit score. The available payment alternatives for each consumer will be determined by Affirm’s technology in a matter of seconds. If authorized, qualified customers can divide purchases totaling $50 or more into straightforward monthly payments. Eligible consumers will be aware of their monthly payments’ duration and number right away. Customers won’t have their total payment amount increased and won’t be assessed a late or additional fee even if they pay late or miss a payment.
“Since launching with Amazon in the U.S., we’ve been providing eligible Amazon customers with a powerful tool to responsibly increase their purchasing power,”
“We are excited to bring customers shopping on Amazon.ca the opportunity to pay for everyday items and milestone purchases with Affirm as we deliver the same level of transparency and flexibility that customers have come to expect from Affirm across our markets in North America and beyond.”
Geoff Kott, Affirm’s Chief Revenue Officer.
