Afterpay, a leading “Buy Now, Pay Later” (BNPL) service provider, has announced that the company is now offering its service to consumers and merchants in the Canadian market.

Afterpay enables merchants to give shoppers the ability to receive products immediately and pay in four installments over a short period of time. The service is available free for Canadian customers helping consumers spend money responsibly without incurring interest, fees, or revolving and extended debt.

“As millions of consumers across the world turn to e-commerce to shop for everything they need in their life, the time has never been better to give Canadians the ability to use their own money and pay over time – instead of turning to expensive loans with interest, fees or revolving debt. We are thrilled and honoured to partner with some of the best Canadian brands to bring our service to this important market, and help deliver new customers and increased sales to our partners,” said Nick Molnar, co-founder and North American CEO of Afterpay.

The firm first introduced its in-store solution in Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) in 2016. According to company data, as of July of 2020, Afterpay had nearly 12 mn app, and U.S. site visits and its U.S. Shop Directory contributed nearly 9.5 mn lead referrals to its retail partners.
