The Afterpay flexible payment platform is enabling select mobile customers to leverage “buy now, pay later” services at some of America’s leading retailers.

Retailers including Amazon, CVS, Dell, Kroger, Macy's, Nike, Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack, Sephora, Target, Victoria's Secret, Walgreens, and Yeti now all offer the Afterpay flexible payment option via the Afterpay mobile app to pay in four interest-free installments. App users who are selected by Afterpay to participate will be able to take items home immediately. 

Afterpay uses a one-time card to facilitate the purchase. The payment details are automatically populated at checkout, helping to ensure a seamless checkout experience. According to Afterpay, these retailers represent almost half of all U.S. e-commerce volume. Eligible customers can choose these retailers in the Afterpay Shop Directory and then pay with Afterpay. 

Retailers including The Container Store, Gap Inc., and Urban Outfitters have all rolled out Afterpay flexible payments in the past few years.

"Over the past year, we all relied on online shopping for the things we needed during the pandemic. But, as we celebrate the physical re-opening of stores, consumers still want the convenience and flexibility of buying with the click of a mouse as part of their 'new normal'," said Zahir Khoja, GM of Afterpay North America. "We are thrilled to continue to support our customers by allowing them to shop every day at their favorite brands with Afterpay for things they need and want in their lives."
