What You Should Know About Affirm Loans

Affirm specializes in making small loans to consumers. Affirm loans are an alternative to credit cards or bank loans. Especially because many banks will not make small loans to consumers.

Affirm also specializes in financing the purchase of merchandise. If you purchase something online and sign up to pay over time, you may end up with a loan to Affirm.

It is important to note that Affirm often advertises itself as a lender that doesn’t charge fees and or penalties. But in fact, they do usually charge interest. If you don’t make your payments on time the balance will grow larger over time.

Also, they do not charge any late fees, but they do report to credit bureaus. So, if you’re late on your payments it could hurt your credit score.
