How does Affirm financing work?

Affirm financing works by applying for a loan for your online purchases at the point of transaction. It is similar to using a credit card where you are able to pay back your purchase in monthly installments except, instead, it is a virtual one and it's pretty quick and instant to process. The loan can be applied up to the amount of $15,000 USD and what you don't use will be kept in a safe and secure Affirm virtual card. Then fixed monthly payments are due back to pay off your purchase from 3 - 6 months (or depending on the Affirm plan you choose). To begin the financing process, you must first submit an application through the dedicated Affirm window when you select "Affirm" at the checkout section of your order. You have to submit a U.S cell number and a soft credit check will be carried out to see if you are eligible for a loan. Make sure you qualify for an Affirm financing plan before you apply.

Will Affirm check my credit score?

Yes. When you create an account with Affirm, they will evaluate your credit score with a 'soft' credit check.
