SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Affirm (NASDAQ: AFRM), the payment network that empowers consumers and helps merchants drive growth and Stripe, a financial infrastructure platform for businesses, announced a strategic partnership that makes Affirm’s Adaptive Checkout™ available to Stripe users in the U.S. today. Adaptive Checkout uses Affirm’s smart decision engine to make a real-time underwriting decision and offer consumers optimized bi-weekly and monthly pay over time options side-by-side.
Now, businesses using Stripe can add this technology to their checkout experience in minutes. Eligible customers will then have the option to use Affirm to split the cost of purchases ranging from $50 to $30,000, with a maximum credit limit of $17,500. True to Affirm’s long-standing commitment to never charge late or hidden fees, customers will never owe more than they agree to upfront.
“Businesses who offer Affirm at checkout have reported as much as 85% higher average order values compared to other payment methods, and our new partnership delivers a powerful growth engine to the millions of businesses and platforms that use Stripe,” said Geoff Kott, Chief Revenue Officer at Affirm. “Stripe’s infrastructure, combined with Affirm’s customizable payment options and unrivaled flexibility and transparency, provides immense value for businesses looking to reach new customers, increase sales, and drive growth.”
Businesses who offer Affirm’s Adaptive Checkout see increased cart conversion, approvals, and sales compared to those who offer monthly payments through Affirm alone.
“We were able to integrate Affirm, test, and then launch in production within one day,” said Ignacio Flores, Technical Lead Engineer at Orchard Mile. “More than 25% of purchases are being paid through buy now, pay later, and our conversion rate continues to improve as customers have more flexibility to purchase the products they want.”
"Businesses need to move quickly to keep up with changing consumer preferences," said Sophie Sakellariadis, Payments Product Lead at Stripe. “For ten years, Affirm has been a powerful tool for businesses to reach new customers and drive growth. Stripe users can now get started accepting payments with Affirm in mere minutes."
