The expanded partnership positions Affirm to be available “to even more skiers and riders across the U.S. and Canada,” Affirm SVP of Revenue Pat Suh said.

Earlier in May, Affirm CEO Max Levchin noted the economy is more resilient than commonly perceived. He said consumers continue spending and utilizing flexible payment options such as Buy Now, Pay Later (BNPL). He also countered the notion that high interest rates are adversely affecting Affirm.

Affirm Holdings stock gained 95% in the last 12 months. Investors can gain exposure to the stock via Amplify Mobile Payments ETF IPAY and Global X FinTech ETF FINX.
