As mentioned in a release, U.S. merchants using ACI Secure eCommerce are now able to easily provide consumers the ability to make purchases with Affirm and pay-over-time “without any late or hidden fees.”

A Aite-Novarica Group report projects the Buy Now, Pay Later (BNPL) market will grow to over $1.2 trillion by 2024.

Merchants need to offer the right solutions to meet their customers’ needs and succeed in today’s market environment. Through this partnership, merchants using ACI’s Secure eCommerce solution can now easily integrate Affirm’s compelling offerings that help turn browsers into buyers while delivering greater flexibility at checkout with no gotchas or late fees.”

“With millions of consumers shifting their spending habits and looking for quick and convenient payment methods like buy now, pay later, we are excited to partner with Affirm to help drive conversion for merchants. Today’s consumers want payment alternatives and merchants need to keep up or get left behind. The partnership with ACI and Affirm makes it possible for merchants to meet these consumers where they are.”
