Affirm soars on buy now, pay later pact with Amazon

Affirm Holdings Inc shares surged 43% on Friday after the company partnered with Amazon.com Inc to make its buy now, pay later (BNPL) service available to certain customers of the e-commerce giant.




Marketed as an alternative to credit cards, BNPL services have soared in popularity during the pandemic as consumers seek options that make purchases easier on their wallets.

Jack Dorsey's Square Inc this month agreed to buy Australian BNPL pioneer Afterpay Ltd for $29 billion and a report said in July that Apple Inc and Goldman Sachs were readying a version of the service.

Affirm's tie-up will allow select Amazon customers to split the total cost of purchases of $50 or more into simple monthly payments using its service. The feature will roll out to more customers in the coming months.

The nine-year-old company has become one of the most well-known BNPL firms in the United States and its partners include Adidas AG, Shopify Inc and Walmart Inc.

Affirm charges merchants a fee to offer small point-of-sale loans which shoppers repay in installments, bypassing credit checks.
Shares of Affirm, which debuted on the Nasdaq in January, were at $97 in extended trading.
