US ‘buy now, pay later’ venture Sezzle’s platform is now available to Canadian shoppers at such online stores as Italian sportswear brand Kappa.
“We see this as a turning point for Canadian shoppers as they now have access to a new way to pay that is completely transparent and fully aligned with their financial interests,” says Charlie Youakim, CEO and Co-founder, Sezzle, which lays claim to more than 3,300 e-commerce merchants using its payment technology.
“As we continue to support consumer financial responsibility, we are thrilled to be kicking off our launch in Canada with a strong retail partner like Kappa, given their history and strong brand reputation in the region.”
“We wanted to make the shopping experience as easy and convenient as possible for our customers. Sezzle provides this flexibility in the buying process which is key,” says Puneet Girdhar, CEO at Kappa Canada. "Our goal has always been to offer our shoppers an innovative, quality product and experience, and this partnership will help us ensure we’ll continue to execute.”
