A new feature announced by Amazon will allow customers to make purchases first and pay later

E-commerce website Amazon is famous for bringing good offers for its customers from time to time, and this time Amazon has brought buy-now-pay-later options for some of its selected customers. Under this facility, customers will be able to pay for purchases of $50 or more by dividing the total cost into monthly payments.

This facility is very beneficial for those customers who are not able to make full payment in one go. Amazon has joined hands with a company called Affirm, a payment network, to add this feature to its platform. Affirm is rated as the best USA-based startup company, it helps customers to buy products in lsmall installments.

Apart from Amazon, the company also has partnerships with other world’s major companies including popular names like Adidas, Shopify, and Walmart. However, at this time only a few US customers can use this facility as the facility is currently being tested in the US only. But it is believed that soon the customers of other countries will also be able to take advantage of this facility, although when it has not been disclosed yet.

Regarding this partnership, Affirm issued a statement saying that “customers will be able to see the total cost of their purchases before check out and at the same time customers will also be able to avoid paying late or hidden fees”. However, it is not yet known how many users will get a chance to take advantage of the buy-now-pay-later facility.

For a few years, Amazon has been continuously working on features that benefit the customers, following, last year Amazon introduced the voice command feature with Alexa support for the convenience of its customers, which allows customers to search and buy goods by just speaking.
