Introducing Affirm Financing

Introducing Affirm Financing




For the first time ever, we are introducing a toolset that instantly allows any of our interior designers to extend up to 12-month, 0% APR financing to their clients at checkout utilizing SideDoor technology and Affirm Financing.

SideDoor is built by interior designers for interior designers. We are a suite of tools that allows our interior designers to sell easier and more efficiently than ever from our centralized hub of to-the-trade vendors in home furnishings. You curate products, share them for purchase, SideDoor handles the transaction and the logistics, so you can go back to designing.

In our continuing quest to develop more tools for our users, we have pushed diligently to deliver a solution to one of the final roadblocks to compete against brick-and-mortar retail and e-commerce giants: financing.

Whether you are selling one lamp to your client or an entire home collection of furniture, as a designer you can now offer your client 3-month, 6-month, or 12-months of 0% APR financing solutions at checkout. As soon as that product is delivered to your client, regardless of payment method, the spread between your designer pricing and IMAP is immediately deposited into your bank account.

Simply put, this is HUGE. Our partnership with Affirm now allows you to compete against e-commerce as well as your local, regional, and national brick-and-mortar stores. SideDoor is the only platform that offers this tool for interior designers and we couldn’t be more proud to welcome Affirm to our community.

We’re excited for you to start exploring, curating, and selling your collections and seeing the benefits of offering payment solutions to your clients.
