Afterpay – Why Work With Us?


Shopping is fun.

Today’s shopper wants a better way to pay. That’s why we’re are making  paying for things as enjoyable as shopping for them.

We trust and empower shoppers.

Afterpay breaks every rule of conventional wisdom and when it was founded, was widely described as something that could never work. Today, the company has a global active customer base of 7+ million, annual sales in excess of $9 billion and a merchant base that has nearly doubled over the last year to more than 43,000.

 

This unprecedented growth is the result of an almost unheard of balance where the consumer and retailer both benefit - a rare “win win.” The consumers gets her item immediately while controlling and budgeting their own money without paying fees or taking out a loan. And the retailers who gains access to valuable Millennial and Gen Z customers - frequent fashion and beauty shoppers with spending power.  

We’re committed to responsible spending.

Beyond the numbers, Afterpay is most proud of supporting the movement away from traditional credit, giving consumers control over their money and encouraging fiscal responsibility. Today, Afterpay has become a verb among young shoppers who often use #Afterpayit in their social media conversations.
