RICHMOND HILL, Ontario – Nov. 1, 2022 – Newegg Commerce, Inc. (NASDAQ: NEGG), a leading global technology e-commerce retailer, and Affirm (NASDAQ: AFRM), the payment network that empowers consumers and helps merchants drive growth, today announced the expansion of their partnership into Canada, bringing increased payment flexibility and transparency to customers shopping on Newegg.ca. Eligible customers can now use Affirm to pay over time for their purchases on Newegg.ca. Newegg has been offering Affirm to its U.S. customers since 2021.
Similar to Newegg’s U.S. e-commerce site, Newegg.ca customers who select Affirm as a payment option at checkout will go through a quick and free soft credit check that won’t impact their credit score. In seconds, Affirm’s technology will determine available payment options for each customer. If approved, eligible customers will be able to split their purchases of $100 CAD or more. From the start, eligible customers will know how many payments they have and when they’ll be done paying. Even if they’re late or miss a payment, a customer’s total payment amount will not increase. They will also not be charged a late or hidden fee.
“Our Canadian customers now have the same benefits and shopping flexibility with Affirm that we have been offering our U.S customers since 2021,” said Danny Yip, Senior Category Manager for Newegg Canada. “Unlike other financing options, Affirm’s platform doesn’t charge late fees and allows approved customers to choose their preferred payment plan at checkout. We expect our Canadian customers will appreciate Affirm’s flexible payment option for their tech purchases.”
“Consumers are voting with their wallets by adopting transparent and flexible payment methods like Affirm,” said Vassil Chalashkanov, Affirm’s Country Manager, Canada. “Nearly three out of four Canadians have their budget top-of-mind when shopping. With the holiday season just around the corner, we are excited to be expanding our relationship with Newegg into Canada and enabling eligible consumers to purchase their favorite tech products over time so they can enjoy gifts without gotchas.”
Affirm’s mission is to deliver honest financial products that improve lives. By building a new kind of payment network — one based on trust, transparency and putting people first — we empower millions of consumers to spend and save responsibly, and give thousands of businesses the tools to fuel growth. Unlike most credit cards and other pay-over-time options, we show consumers exactly what they will pay up front, never increase that amount, and never charge any late or hidden fees.
