LILY Partners with Affirm Aims to Make Owning A Drone Easier Than Ever
Mota Group’s LILY® division s making great strides to make owning a drone as easy as possible. Early this month it announced the release of its innovative Lily Next-Gen™ drone, an easy-to-use selfie drone, giving users most of what the Lily drone promised, but more. Today, the company has announced its newest partnership with Affirma to offer shoppers in the United States the flexibility of buying now and making simple monthly payments for their purchases.
This new option is in addition to LILY’s existing payment methods, which include both credit and debit cards, as well as Bitcoin, and PayPal. This bold move makes LILY the only consumer drone company to offer all five methods of payment.
“Partnering with Affirm reduces price as an obstacle for our U.S. customers,” said Mota Group President Michael Faro. “We’re relentlessly focused on making LILY drones fun and easy for everyone. Drones and robots are becoming essential items in many people’s lives. Today’s announcement is only the first step to help make drone ownership more accessible and affordable to a larger population. Affirm is a great way to make it easy for people to afford a fully featured consumer drone whenever they want it.”
Affirm is a highly popular financial services company. Started by PayPal co-founder Max Levchin, its benefits include a fast loan decision process and monthly payments with terms that can be more advantageous than standard credit cards, such as paying for purchases with simple-interest loans that are free of penalty fees—annual, late, deferred or otherwise.
LILY customers may select Affirm at checkout and view their monthly payments up front before making their purchase. More information and purchasing options are available at www.lily.camera/affirm.
