Buy Now, Pay Later (BNPL) provider Laybuy has announced its partnership with Premier League giant Manchester United F.C. to give fans a new interest-free payment option to help them buy merchandise and show support for the club.
The partnership will allow fans to buy club merchandise in the Manchester United Megastore in Old Trafford stadium and spread their payments with weekly interest-free instalments over six weeks, via the Laybuy app.
Laybuy Co-founder and Managing Director Gary Rohloff said: “At Laybuy, we share our customers’ obsession with football, and we want to help as many fans as we can enjoy and celebrate the game. That is why we are incredibly excited to be partnering with Manchester United, who have some of the most passionate fans in the world.
“We want to make life as easy as possible for Manchester United’s fans. Laybuy is simple to use and helps fans fit new merchandise into their weekly budgets by allowing them to buy goods now and spread the payments over the following six weeks. Best of all, Laybuy customers don’t pay interest, ever.”
As part of the partnership, Laybuy will look to further integrate its offering across a number of the Club’s other retail platforms in 2021.
Manchester United’s Director of Partnerships, Sean Jefferson, said: “We know fans are looking for a range of different payment options that best meet their specific needs. That is why we are delighted to be partnering with Laybuy, a global leader in Buy Now Pay Later technology, to provide fans access to a more convenient way of purchasing club merchandise and services.”
Launched in 2017, Laybuy is a Buy Now, Pay Later (BNPL) service based in New Zealand with a growing presence in the United Kingdom and Australia. Its fully integrated payment platform is helping to change the way we spend, allowing consumers to stagger their payments while also providing merchants with a risk-free payment option.
