The new partnership between Apple and Affirm's PayBright comes in the form of a new "buy now, pay later" program that allows customers in Canada to finance select purchases between 12 and 24 months.
Apple is still expected to launch another service called 'Apple Pay Later,' which would let virtually any Apple Pay purchase be financed over time.
Apple does already offer a "buy now, pay later" service for select purchases at Apple with the company's Apple Card credit card, but the company's credit card is still only available in the United States.
