How to Accept Affirm Buy Now, Pay Later Payments

Affirm is a popular payment method in the US and Canada that gives your customers a way to split purchases over a series of payments. Pay in 4 interest-free installments or in monthly installments of up to 36 months.

Depending on the cart order size, Affirm presents customers with Pay in 4, monthly installments, or both.

  • Pay in 4: customers pay for purchases in four or fewer interest-free, bi-weekly payments over an 8 week term.
  • Monthly Installments: customers pay for purchases over a longer term of up to 36 months, which might include interest.

Affirm algorithmically presents customers with the options that are most likely to result in the highest conversion, instead of having you choose specific payment options.
