Afterpay Expands Into Quebec

Afterpay, a provider of ‘Buy Now, Pay Later’ payments, has extended its platform to Quebec with the introduction of its service in French Canada. Shoppers in the region can now use Afterpay at partnering Canadian and international retailers, and can choose either English or French Canadian as their preferred language. The company launched in Canada in August 2020, enabling shoppers to receive products immediately and pay in four instalments over six weeks. The service is free for consumers without incurring interest, fees, or revolving and extended debt. In November 2020, Afterpay launched cross border shopping, which opened Canadian storefronts to an international network.
