ATLANTA & SAN FRANCISCO – January 18, 2022: Verifone, a global FinTech leader and payment solution provider to the world’s best-known retail brands, and Affirm, the payment network that empowers consumers and helps merchants drive growth, today announce a new partnership that will make Affirm’s transparent and flexible payment options widely available on Verifone’s eCommerce and card-present payment solutions. The partnership will enable merchants to offer their customers the ability to pay at their own pace using Affirm online and in-store, reinforcing Verifone’s commitment to staying ahead of market trends and meeting merchant and consumer needs in the ever-evolving payment space. Merchants will be able to offer Affirm’s full range of payment options, including biweekly and monthly payments with as low as 0% APR.
“We predict that the buy now pay later (BNPL) market will continue to see rapid growth as more consumers use and gain trust in their preferred wallets, and as merchants expand their payment acceptance to cater to consumer demand,” said Jeremy Belostock, Head of Advanced Payment Methods at Verifone. “Verifone is excited for this partnership with one of the clear leaders in the pay-over-time space. Adding Affirm to our existing portfolio of peer-to-peer, cryptocurrency, international payment apps, and BNPL Advanced Payment Method offerings gives Verifone merchants another tool to drive growth and attract new consumers, and the offering complements our extensive line of end-to-end solutions that revolutionize and streamline buying journeys.”
“Partnering with Verifone advances Affirm’s goal of becoming ubiquitous by providing the opportunity to significantly expand our reach,” said Geoff Kott, Affirm’s Chief Revenue Officer. “Consumers are demanding more flexible and transparent payment options wherever they choose to shop, both online and in-store. In fact, the latest Affirm Consumer Spend Report revealed nearly 50% of consumers will only complete a transaction if a retailer offers a pay-over-time option at checkout. We look forward to supporting Verifone’s wide range of merchants, from large omnichannel enterprises to SMBs, and enabling superior experiences at checkout.”
