What are AFFIRM’s Interest Rates and Fees?

The annual percentage rate (APR) on an AFFIRM loan ranges from 10% to 30%. AFFIRM discloses any required fees up-front before you make a purchase, so you know exactly what you will pay for your financing. AFFIRM does not charge any hidden fees, including annual fees.

Why is my AFFIRM interest rate as high as it is?

When AFFIRM determines your annual percentage rate (APR), it evaluates a number of factors, including your credit score and other data about you. This is especially true on a ‘first-time’ purchase. If you finance future purchases with AFFIRM , you may be eligible for a lower APR depending on your financial situation at the time of the subsequent purchase(s).

When you consider AFFIRM financing, carefully evaluate the loan terms that AFFIRM offers you and determine whether the monthly payments fit your budget.

How is interest on an AFFIRM loan calculated?

Unlike many other loan providers, AFFIRM calculates the annual percentage rate (APR) of a loan using simple interest, which equals the rate multiplied by the loan amount and by the number of months the loan is outstanding.

This model differs considerably from compound interest, in which the interest expense is calculated on the loan amount and the accumulated interest on the loan from previous periods. Think about compound interest as “interest on interest,” which can increase the loan amount. Credit cards, for example, use compound interest to calculate the interest expense on outstanding credit card debt.

 

So that’s the story…

… and that’s why we work with AFFIRM – because we believe that simple interest financing is in our customers’ best interests. And we do like keeping things simple.
