Afterpay, an innovative digital platform that offers interest-free
installment plans for in-store and online purchases, announced today
that it has partnered with Levi’s, Ray-Ban, O’Neill and Tarte Cosmetics,
among many other brands and retailers in the US. Since launching in the
country just over a year ago, Afterpay has already reached 1.5 million
US customers, who can now use the service when shopping at more than
3,300 retailers. The company’s strong US growth continues with over
1,000 further merchants in the process of integrating the Afterpay
platform to offer their customers a better shopping experience.

“We are thrilled to be expanding Afterpay to hundreds of thousands more
shoppers in the US each month,” said Nick Molnar, CEO and Co-Founder of
Afterpay. “As more millennials and Gen Zers shop for brands ranging from
American icons like Levi’s, Ray-Ban, Jeffree Star Cosmetics and O’Neill
to younger, category-shaking brands like Tarte Cosmetics, they are
showing how important it is to them to be able to manage their budgets
responsibly and never be caught off guard by surprise interest payments
or fees.”

US customer reach by 500,000, bringing the total number of US shoppers
who have used Afterpay to 1.5 million. Anthropologie, Bandier, DSW,
