This integration aims to enhance flexibility for Amazon Business customers, enabling them to split the total cost of eligible purchases and make payments over a specified period through Affirm without incurring late or hidden fees. 

Through this partnership, Amazon Business will gradually implement Affirm as a payment option for eligible sole proprietor businesses. The company aims to make this payment alternative available for all eligible Amazon Business sole proprietor customers by Black Friday 2023. Officials from Amazon Business Worldwide emphasised the commitment to making Amazon Business a favourable destination for small businesses to meet their procurement requirements.

The seamless integration of Affirm into Amazon Business is facilitated by the technology's ease, its capacity to support a wide array of transactions, and its existing user base among Amazon customers.
