Affirm Brings Financing to Four More E-Commerce Platforms
Retailers using e-commerce platforms including Kibo Commerce, BigCommerce, AspDotNetStorefront and Zen-Cart can now provide their users the ability to purchase goods and services and break up payments over multiple months.
Affirm already has native support for Salesforce Commerce Cloud (formerly Demandware), Magento 1.x and 2.0 and both Shopify and Shopify Plus.
What's unique about Affirm is that there is really very little risk to retailers in offering the this type of financing to shoppers because Affirm pays merchants in full at teh time of settlement. The company suggests that its offerings can lift conversion rates by as much as 25 percent and increase average order values by more than 80 percent.
“With this new set of e-commerce platform partners in place, Affirm is able to accommodate hundreds of additional retail partners looking to make their products more accessible and affordable to shoppers," said Affirm founder Max Levchin (and former PayPayl co-founder). "We look forward to continued support and expansion throughout 2017 and beyond.”
