Amazon is rolling out a new pay later option.

Amazon has joined forces with Affirm to offer a flexible payment option at checkout, the companies said Friday. The new feature is currently in testing, and Amazon says it “plans to make Affirm more broadly available to its customers.” 

The partnership now allows some Amazon customers to split the cost of purchases $50 or more into monthly payments with Affirm. They’ll see the full cost upfront and “will never pay more than what they agree to at checkout,” according to a statement. There won’t be any late or hidden fees for customers.
