  • Affirm financing for renters (the US only). First and foremost, enabling Affirm increases conversion at no cost to you.  In your Premium Services, you can enable Affirm, allowing your renters to select it as their form of payment during the online booking process. Affirm offers pay as you go financing to your renters. This service is a financing alternative to credit cards and offers instant financing for online purchases to be paid in fixed monthly installments. The big takeaway? This has absolutely no impact on how you get paid, you likely won’t even notice they’ve used the Affirm payment option. Enable it here

    Note: Affirm transactions are subject to the same payment processing fee as credit card transactions.
