Affirm is reinventing credit to make it more honest and friendly, giving consumers the flexibility to buy now and pay later without any hidden fees or compounding interest.
Introducing Powered By Affirm. Powered by Affirm takes the best of what Affirm has to offer (Apps and APIs) and exposes them to Ecommerce Platforms, Marketplaces and Large Enterprises to deliver a more native, embedded and customized user and merchant experience.
