Affirm, the financial technology company that provides transparent and consumer-friendly payment alternatives to cash and traditional credit, has tied up with Walmart to give shoppers the option of using Affirm to pay for purchases over time at nearly 4,000 Supercenters nationwide. Walmart will begin to integrate Affirm as payment option in the coming weeks.

The Affirm experience at Walmart Supercentres is designed to be transparent, seamless and integrated with a consumer’s typical shopping experience. Customers can check eligibility before they head into the store or while they shop, using their desktop or mobile devices. A decision is made in real time, without impacting their credit scores.

Once approved, shoppers select a repayment term of 3, 6, or 12 monthly installments and are shown the exact repayment amount they’ll owe each month, with interest displayed in simple dollars rather than as a hard-to-calculate interest rate. There are no hidden or late fees, so users will never pay a dollar more than they agree to. For in-store shoppers, they will receive a unique barcode that is scanned by a store associate at the register to complete a purchase.

“Walmart serves millions and has become a leader in the retail landscape with its commitment to help shoppers ‘save money and live better,’ which closely mirrors our own mission to ‘improve lives’ with our products,” said Max Levchin, founder and CEO at Affirm. “I’m looking forward to introducing Walmart customers to a modern and innovative way to buy the things they need.”

“We are focused on providing customers transparent, easy, and convenient ways to pay, and offering Affirm both in stores and online is one way to do that,” said Daniel Eckert, senior vice president of Walmart Services and Digital Acceleration. “Providing multiple ways to shop and finance select items with no hidden fees is an important way we deliver on our promise to help our customers save money and live better.”

Affirm is available as a payment option on purchases ranging from $150 to $2,000. Customers can shop for thousands of items including electronics, home and garden, automotive, furniture and sporting goods at Walmart Supercenters nationwide (except Iowa, West Virginia and Puerto Rico) and online in the coming weeks. Select items, including alcohol, tobacco, groceries, pharmacy and personal care, firearms and money services, are not eligible to be purchased using Affirm. (SV)
