How Affirm makes money
No fees are charged to users of their Savings Account. Affirm makes money through the interest that customers pay loans. The company's average APR is 18 percent. Merchants furthermore pay Affirm a percentage fee of the product's sales price in exchange for managing the payment and taking on the risk of default.
Is it safe?
All money in your Affirm Savings Account is insured through the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) for at least $250,000. The FDIC insures both the deposits you make within your high-yield savings account and any interest you earn.
