Affirm currently accepts Debit cards. Debit cards must have the Visa or Mastercard logo. Please note that prepaid cards are not accepted.
Is there a limit to how much I can spend on an Affirm order?
Affirm payment plans are available for orders from $200 to $15,000.
Can I prepay my outstanding Affirm balance?
What if I have pre-order products?
For pre-orders, the first payment will be due when you place your order. Because our pre-order products have extended delivery times which are subject to change, your loan payments may be due before you receive your purchase. Please refer to the loan agreement for all of your payment schedule information. If you decide to cancel your pre-order product, incurred interest payments are non-refundable.
What if I need to cancel my order?
If the order has been shipped
If you need to cancel your order and your order has already been shipped, you will need to pay the restocking fee. For doorstep delivery items, it is a flat rate fee of $75. For in home delivery items, it is a flat rate fee of $150. The restocking fee needs to be paid before we refund your payment. In the event of a cancellation, incurred interest payments are non-refundable.
If you need to cancel your order, please reach out to us at 1-800-786-0625.
If the order has not been shipped
If the order has not been shipped, you will not be charged. If you’ve already made a payment to Affirm and are owed a refund this may take up to 5-10 business days to appear on your bank account or credit card statement. If you have any questions about the refund process, please reach out to the Affirm team through this contact form.
How do returns work if I paid using Affirm?
Purchases made using Affirm are subject to Sundays’ standard return policy. Any returns will be processed by Sundays, and your Affirm balance will be reduced, cancelled, or refunded accordingly. For information on returns, review Sundays’ return policy here.
