Experience Live, Your Way: SeatGeek Announces New Partnership with Affirm
Fans can choose new flexible and transparent ways to pay, allowing them more opportunities to experience once-in-a-lifetime moments
NEW YORK, NY and SAN FRANCISCO, CA – July 14, 2022 – SeatGeek, the high-growth technology platform transforming the live event experience for fans, teams, and venues, today announced a new partnership with Affirm, the payment network that empowers consumers and helps merchants drive growth. Through this partnership with Affirm, SeatGeek will provide fans with more ways to pay, leading to more opportunities for those exhilarating, ‘goosebump’ moments that come from experiencing live entertainment.
“Attending live events is at the top of many of our lists for 2022 and beyond, but so is sticking to a budget. Luckily, Affirm helps with both,” said Geoff Kott, Affirm’s Chief Revenue Officer. “By partnering with SeatGeek, we are able to make it possible for more people to enjoy the experiences they want by delivering flexible and transparent payment options at checkout.”
Affirm is a flexible and transparent alternative to credit cards and other pay-over-time options that never charges late or hidden fees. By selecting Affirm at checkout, fans can choose the payment option that works best for them, ranging from monthly payments to four interest-free biweekly payments. The partnership reflects SeatGeek’s commitment to providing fans with more opportunities and more options to connect to the live events they love.
“The post-pandemic boom in online shopping brought a wave of innovations that resulted in a transformation of entire operations, and left customers wanting more control over their purchases,” said Paula Segal, Head of Consumer Product at SeatGeek. “As SeatGeek continues to see an influx of fans wanting to get back out to enjoy the magic of live events, we’re paying closer attention to their feedback so we can evolve with this ever-changing consumer base — especially the younger generations. By listening and incorporating their feedback, our partnership with Affirm aims to give fans the flexibility and ease-of-use they want and deserve.”
SeatGeek joins a network of more than 200,000 merchant partners, and nearly 13 million active users. To learn more, download the Affirm app or visit support.seatgeek.com.
