By Delisha Fernandes
Evolve, a vacation rental hospitality company has partnered with payment network Affirm to provide pay-over-time options to travelers.
By selecting Affirm at checkout, approved Evolve customers can split the total cost of any booking over $500 into monthly payments for as low as 0% APR. As Affirm never charges customers any late or hidden fees, they are shown the total purchase cost and will never pay more than they agree to upfront.
“We knew Affirm was the right partner for Evolve based on their commitment to transparency – their mission to deliver honest financial products aligns seamlessly with our vision to be the most trusted hospitality brand in vacation rental,” said Eric Schueller, Executive Vice President of Revenue at Evolve. “We look forward to the positive impact this partnership will have on Evolve bookings and the opportunity it will create for people to travel and make memories during these uncertain economic times.”
When booking with Evolve, travelers are able to book with confidence, knowing they’ll arrive at a home that’s clean, safe, easy to access, and true to everything they saw online. Further, guests have 48 hours to cancel bookings made at evolve.com without penalty, and if their plans change at least 48 hours before check-in, they can receive a credit that’s good for two years.
“Recent Affirm research revealed that the vast majority of Americans – more than 90% – plan to travel this year, and the fact that costs remain elevated means it is crucial travelers have access to flexible and transparent payment options,” said Pat Suh, Affirm’s SVP of Revenue. “By partnering with Evolve, we are able to allow more travelers to book trips without concern for late fees or compound interest.”
Evolve joins over 266,000 Affirm retail partners, including American Airlines, Priceline, Great Wolf Lodge, Cathay Pacific, SeatGeek, Royal Caribbean, and more. Offering Affirm at checkout can drive overall sales, increase average order value, and increase customer repurchase rates.
