Buy Now, Pay Later: New Financing Options with Affirm

All of us at Mountains Plus are excited to announce our new partnership with Affirm, which allows customers to easily green_transparent_lgfinance any online purchase at mpgear.com with 3, 6, and 12 month payment options. The best part? No late fees or deferred interest, and it can all be managed easily from your smartphone!

Affirm is a relatively new financing solution from the co-founder of PayPal, Max Levchin. This tech superstar started the company earlier this year and it’s already received widespread media attention and praise from businesses who’ve decided to offer Affirm financing.

We decided to implement it onto our site because of the simplicity, and most importantly, the transparency it offers our customers. After providing a few basic details to Affirm, customers can be instantly approved for their loan via text message and make purchases for immediate shipment with the addition of the small fee depending on creditworthiness and the length of time to pay your purchase off. That’s the game changer – no hidden fees. The whole system is incredibly safe and simple.Screen Shot 2014-10-22 at 3.08.59 PM

We chose to begin offering Affirm right before the crazy holiday season because we can all relate to the financial strain that occurs during this time of year. With Affirm, our customers can breathe a little easier during the holidays because they can shop now and pay later.

Using Affirm for financing is going to be especially helpful when making larger purchases you’ve been considering but couldn’t quite commit to all at once, such as a spacious tent like the Big Agnes Flying Diamond 8P Tent ($669.95), or a high end training system like the Wahoo Fitness KICKR Powertrainer ($1099).

To pay with Affirm on mpgear.com, simply add any item to your cart and click “Pay With Affirm” at checkout. You complete the purchase on Affirm’s website.
