To play fair, trust people and reward them for doing the right thing. We see and feel the impact of our work as more and more people gain financial freedom and retailers grow across the globe.

Afterpay is completely free for customers who pay on time – helping people spend responsibly without incurring interest, fees or extended debt.

Afterpay is deeply committed to delivering positive outcomes for customers. We are focused on supporting our community of shoppers.

We trust in the next generation and share a vision of a more accessible and sustainable world in which people are rewarded for doing the right thing.
