Affirm Shares Ascend Following Deal With Walmart

Shares of financial technology company Affirm Holdings, Inc. (AFRM) are rising more than 12% Tuesday morning after the company said it has expanded services with Walmart by offering pay-over-time options to customers at more than 4,500 Walmart stores in the U.S.

This option is available in Walmart stores across the country, on, in the Walmart app, and also at Walmart Vision and Auto Centers.
