Posted on July 01, 2014 by Melissa Pegus

Spree Commerce and Affirm Meetup in San Francisco

The Meetup

On Wednesday, July 16, 2014, Spree Commerce and Affirm will be linking up in San Francisco to host the featured meetup, "Spree & Affirm Consumer Financing: Increasing revenue, decreasing costs for modern merchants.” The event is for everyone from Spree merchants to expert Spree developers, to those just wanting to learn more about e-commerce or payments.

There will be live demos, discussions on projects that are under way, as well as time for people to share their war stories and collaborate on opportunities. Of course, there will be food. And beer!
The Meetup will be from 6:30 to 9:00 PM PDT.

The Partnership

Spree Commerce believes in bringing the best in customer experience, design, and service to merchants. Affirm shares those values. After a great SpreeConf 2014, Affirm and Spree have partnered to offer Affirm’s simple, elegant consumer financing to its merchants’ customers. The Affirm extension is now available for integration.

About Affirm

Created in 2013 by PayPal co-founder Max Levchin and Palantir co-founder Nathan Gettings, Affirm is reimagining financial services – from credit cards to deposit banking. Starting with an amazingly simple, new way to get affordable financing at the online point of sale, Affirm lets shoppers pay for purchases across multiple months with transparent, fairly-priced fees built into every payment, and boosts conversion and basket size for eTailers at less than the cost of credit cards.

With Affirm, there is zero risk for the eTailer. Affirm pays its merchants in full at the time of settlement and their customers enjoy payments stretched out in monthly installments. Unlike point-of-sale credit options, Split Pay is consumer-friendly. By providing clear terms and a fixed set of payments, consumers using Split Pay are never hit with surprises or large fees, as they often are with revolving credit. Online shoppers can make a purchase and pay across multiple months with simple, clear financing fees that are a fraction of credit card interest rates. Read what people are saying about Affirm.
