We take marketing compliance very seriously. You must get approval from Affirm prior to launching marketing such as:
- Press releases, email newsletters, and launch emails
- Special promotions involving Affirm (such as 0% financing)
- Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest campaigns & updates
- Any other custom marketing
The compliance must be followed when marketing Affirm in order to adhere to the Truth in Lending Act and Regulation Z. Any materials found non-compliant could result in the temporary disablement of our partnership.
