Affirm’s approval is required before launching custom marketing materials on your website.
Follow the steps below for approval.
To make your customized marketing materials successful, your marketing and disclosure terms must comply with various regulatory and legal requirements. As an Affirm partner, you have a dedicated team ready to review your custom assets for marketing Affirm. We've put together a Marketing Best Practices Guide where you’ll find tips and resources you need to get the most out of the Affirm partnership.
Within your marketing materials, make sure you avoid the common errors as seen in the "DON'T SAY" column. Instead, use the guidelines in the "DO SAY" column.
“0%”, “0% financing”, or “0% interest”
“0% APR” or “0% APR financing”
“0% APR” when the rates in your financing program with Affirm also include 10-36% APR
“As low as 0% APR”, or “Starting at 0% APR” or "From 0% APR"
“0% APR or 10-36% APR”
