Amazon customers will soon be able to use Affirm's "buy now, pay later" service at checkout in a new partnership unveiled by the tech companies on Friday.
Amazon and Affirm said they have begun testing the new feature, which would make Affirm the first pay-over-time option at checkout on Amazon. Amazon and Citi have a partnership for Citi cardholders that works slightly differently, charging the full amount to the card but allowing payment over time at a lower interest rate.
The new feature would allow Amazon customers to split the cost of purchases worth $50 or more into monthly payments. Approved customers "will never pay more than what they agree to at checkout," Affirm said in a statement.
The test could take months before the feature is made available to all consumers. Currently, Amazon customers are able to use Affirm through the Affirm app, which creates a one-time-use virtual card used for payment.
Affirm has a similar partnership with Shopify. In June, Affirm unveiled one of the biggest BNPL rollouts in the U.S. when it made its service available to Shopify merchants.
