Amazon Pay adds Affirm, expanding payment option for customers
By Delisha Fernandes
Amazon and Affirm announced that eligible US merchants offering Amazon Pay can now seamlessly add Affirm’s Adaptive Checkout as a payment option at checkout.
This brings Affirm’s pay-over-time technology, used by millions of customers on Amazon.com and the Amazon mobile app, to Amazon Pay’s simple and secure payment solution.
“We know customers want convenient and flexible payment options—whether they are checking out on Amazon.com or using Amazon Pay,” said Omar Soudodi, director of Amazon Pay. “With Affirm on Amazon Pay, merchants can offer a pay-over-time option to their existing customers and have another way to reach new customers.”
“Digital wallets are an increasingly critical part of the shopping experience and are expected to account for over half of e-commerce transactions worldwide by 2025,” said Libor Michalek, President of Affirm. “In addition, customers want more choice and flexibility when paying online. By integrating Affirm’s Adaptive Checkout, thousands of merchants can offer their customers personalised payment options and increased spending power through Amazon Pay’s convenient and secure checkout experience.”
Affirm’s Adaptive Checkout offers bi-weekly and monthly pay-over-time options side-by-side at checkout. Customers who click the Amazon Pay button on a participating retailer’s site at checkout can select Affirm as their payment method and go through a quick, real-time approval process with no added cost and no impact on their credit score.
Using Amazon Pay makes the checkout experience at online merchants as convenient as shopping on Amazon.com. It offers customers a simple and secure way to manage payment methods and review purchases.
If a customer has an Amazon account, they already have Amazon Pay and can use the same payment methods, shipping address, and email safely stored in their Amazon.com account. And now, customers can check out using Affirm in only a few steps via the Amazon Pay button.
