Afterpay, which is owned by Block, Inc., is one of the largest buy now-pay-later businesses, along with Klarna, Affirm, Zip, Sezzle. People were reluctant to shop in person when the pandemic started and were also financially afflicted. The BNPL companies’ zero interest, 6-week installment plans are so appealing.
Afterpay was accepted by hundreds of thousands of retailers in the US and UK. Is StockX on this list? If not, what are the options?
StockX has an afterpay
StockX does NOT offer Afterpay, but they will accept other buy-now, pay-later options like Zip, Klarna and Affirm. They allow you to make interest free installments over a time period depending on your plan.
What is Buy-Now, Pay-Later (BNPL Financing)?
Buy-now-pay later (BNPL), a financing option that allows users to purchase an item and then make the rest of their payments in weekly or monthly installments. Although it works almost the same way as credit cards, consumers prefer BNPL due to its lower interest rates and easier use.
Afterpay, Klarna and Zip are the largest players in short-term lending. During the coronavirus pandemic, they grew to multi-billion-dollar companies.
Customers had to find other ways to purchase necessities without going broke because of the loss in employment, lower disposable income and reliance on online shopping during lockdowns. BNPL’s flexible payment schedule and zero-interest financing became the preferred choice over credit cards with their high interest rates and hefty fees.
StockX offers buy-now-pay-later options
Not all countries offer buy-now-pay later options. Check their official site to see if Klarna, Zip and Affirm are available in your country.
