Are there any interest or fees associated with Affirm loans?
Affirm loans vary between 10% and 30% APR (promotional interest rates may be offered from time-to-time). The corresponding finance charge is the only fee associated with an Affirm loan - Affirm does not charge late fees, service fees, prepayment fees, or any other hidden fees. Affirm loans also only accrue simple interest — not compound interest — which means you won't be charged interest upon interest. Affirm always strives to be more transparent and fair than any other form of financing.Last Updated: 6/9/2016

Does Affirm perform a credit check?
Yes, when you first create an Affirm account, they perform a ‘soft’ credit check to help verify your identity and determine your eligibility for financing. This ‘soft’ credit check will not affect your credit score.
If you apply for more loans with Affirm, they may perform additional ‘soft’ credit checks to ensure that they offer you the best financing options possible.Last Updated: 6/9/2016
