The Container Store and Afterpay Partner to Deliver Flexible Payments

SAN FRANCISCO & COPPELL, Texas , May 17 /Businesswire/ - The Container Store, leading specialty retailer of storage and organization solutions, and custom closets, and Afterpay, the leader of “Buy Now, Pay Later” payments, announced today that they will be bringing flexible spending to customers in-stores and online starting next month.

This press release features multimedia. View the full release here:

Exceptional customer service has always been a key priority for The Container Store, and Afterpay’s customer centric product is a simple solution for budget-conscious shoppers. Starting in mid-June, customers will have the option to make smart purchases for their homes with Afterpay - allowing them to bring home their items immediately and pay with four interest-free payments, using their own money over time.

“Retailers that offer customers flexible spending options see increased conversion, basket size and customer satisfaction,” said Satish Malhotra, CEO of The Container Store. “We cannot wait to offer this additional payment option to our customers, both online and in-store, and introduce our organization solutions to Afterpay shoppers, so they can reap the benefits of living a more organized and stress-free life now.”

Consumers are showing that they want to shop with Afterpay beyond Fashion and Beauty, with Home being at the top of their lists. In a recent survey of Afterpay customers, “Home & Decor” was a top requested category that shoppers said they’d like to see in stores.[1]

"We know that consumers are using Afterpay for everything they want and need in their daily lives, and The Container Store is the perfect addition to our family of merchants," said Melissa Davis, Head of North America at Afterpay. "This partnership will connect young, engaged shoppers who want to create beautiful, organized homes while spending responsibly, and avoiding extended debt, interest and hidden fees."

The partnership is part of The Container Store’s efforts to offer flexible financing options to its customers. Whether they're shopping in-store or online, The Container Store customers can now use Afterpay to receive products immediately while paying over time, interest-free.
