Affirm expands to self-checkout at over 4,500 Walmart stores
By Delisha Fernandes
Affirm, a BNPL provider, has expanded its services with Walmart, to bring transparent and flexible pay-over-time options to self-checkout kiosks at over 4,500 Walmart stores in the United States.
With this partnership, eligible shoppers can easily pay over time for their favorite electronics, apparel, toys, and more in simple monthly payments when checking themselves out in-store.
“Recent Affirm research revealed that more than half of Americans (54%) are looking for retailers to offer a buy now, pay later option at checkout. Moreover, we’ve found that 76% of consumers would either delay or not make a purchase without Affirm,” said Pat Suh, Affirm’s SVP of Revenue. “Expanding our partnership with Walmart and bringing Affirm’s transparent monthly pay-over-time options to their self-checkout kiosks in the U.S. will help even more consumers increase their purchasing power during the holiday shopping season and beyond.”
In addition to being available in Walmart stores nationwide, on walmart.com, and in the Walmart app, U.S. consumers can also pay over time with Affirm at Walmart Vision and Auto Centers. As is always true with Affirm, customers are shown the total cost of their purchase and will never pay more than they agree to upfront. Affirm never charges any late or hidden fees.
Affirm’s mission is to deliver honest financial products that improve lives. By building a new kind of payment network — one based on trust, transparency and putting people first — it empowers millions of consumers to spend and save responsibly, and give thousands of businesses the tools to fuel growth.
