Just days after announcing its partnership with Shopify, U.S. fintech Affirm announced it has formed a partnership with Design Within Reach to allow shoppers to pay-over-time for modern furniture and decor. The partnership notably extends across all the Design Within Reach, Herman Miller, and HAY brands. Consumers may pay with Affirm on purchases over $200 at checkout.
“By selecting Affirm at checkout, Herman Miller Retail customers can split their purchase into monthly payments such as three, six, or 12 months, based on a schedule that best fits their budget. They are shown the total cost of their purchase and will never pay more than they agree to upfront. Affirm never charges customers any late or hidden fees.”
While sharing more details about the collaboration, Silvija Martincevic, Chief Commercial Officer at Affirm, stated:
“Over the last few months, people have transformed their homes into multifaceted spaces. Home has become an office, classroom, gym and more. With this shift, we’ve seen spending on Affirm in the home category spike — proof that, as consumers upgrade their space for what they need now, they want the flexibility to pay later.”
As previously reported, Affirm is a point of sale credit provider that is currently working with more than 5,000 merchants, including Article, Joybird, West Elm, and Shopify. The company’s goal is to provide shoppers with an alternative to expensive credit cards at the point of sale, giving them the flexibility to buy now and make simple monthly payments for their purchases
