With 200+ exhibitors and 150+ speakers, there is SO much to experience at the Retail Innovation Conference & Expo next week! Specifically in the Expo Hall on Wednesday, June 14 and Thursday, June 15, you will find our two “NEXT Stages” featuring a variety of cutting-edge solutions and innovative topics. See the full agenda here!
One session taking place on Thursday, June 15 from 12:45pm-1:15pm on NEXT Stage 1 is the Amazon Pay and Affirm session, “Don’t Fear Flexibility: How to Capitalize on the Expanding Payment Landscape.” This session is especially exciting given the news that Amazon Pay recently announced that eligible U.S. merchants offering Amazon Pay can now seamlessly add Affirm’s Adaptive Checkout as a payment option at checkout. This brings Affirm’s pay-over-time technology, used by millions of customers on Amazon.com and the Amazon mobile app, to Amazon Pay’s simple and secure payment solution.
As a pioneer in commerce, Amazon leads the industry in delivering new and exceptional shopping experiences. The company’s relentless focus on customers drives their innovation investments so they can delight shoppers, no matter where they buy. Amazon Pay extends this commitment by making it simple for hundreds of millions of customers to check-out using information stored in their Amazon account. No sign-up required and no need to remember old passwords or create new ones.
With a click of a button, they offer the Amazon checkout experience customers know and love on tens of thousands of sites around the world. You can also experience Amazon Pay using your voice — hello, Alexa! And with the recent addition of Affirm’s pay-over-time technology, merchants can offer this pay-over-time option to their existing customers and have another way of reaching new customers.
Read all about their session below and be sure to stop by their booth in the Expo Hall at booth #1627!
