Affirm is reinventing credit to make it more honest and friendly, giving consumers the flexibility to buy now and pay later without any hidden fees or compounding interest.
Everyone deserves an opportunity to make the most of life. But our finances are usually more of a hindrance than a help. Affirm is all about giving people more opportunities to lead their best life—without asking them to sign away their future in hidden fees and endless debt. A big part of this mission is being the easiest-to-use and most customer-friendly financial option out there.

You can also deftly weave brand voice into your UX copy; you’ll help Affirm expand upon our new brand voice across all our product touchpoints.
