The company offers online shoppers the ability to pay for goods in installments through short-term loans. The option to finance purchases with Affirm appears on the websites of thousands of merchants ranging from Walmart Inc. to Expedia Group Inc.

The company generates its revenue from merchant networks, via virtual card networks and more. Its major share of revenue generation is geographically generated from the United States.
