Sephora Singapore Ropes in Atome to Offer Buy Now, Pay Later Paymentsby Fintech News Singapore November 18, 2020
French beauty retail giant Sephora Singapore has partnered with Atome, a buy now, pay later service, to offer customers flexible payment options across its e-commerce website, mobile app as well as physical stores in Singapore.
Atome launched its service in December 2019 and now reportedly partners 1,500 online and offline retailers across verticals including fashion, beauty, homeware and lifestyle.
This partnership allows customers to split their purchases into three equal payments over time with zero interest, hidden charges or annual fees.
Sephora has 12 physical outlets in Singapore, an e-commerce website and mobile app, offering their range of products including makeup, skincare, fragrance, haircare, bath and body and more.
Alia Gogi, President of Sephora Asia, said:
“The shopping behaviour and profile of Sephora customers has evolved in the last few years, but especially so this year. They now not only expect a secure, seamless and easy payment experience but also flexibility and choice in how they shop and pay for their beauty products online, on mobile and in-stores.
We’re delighted to partner with Atome in introducing ‘buy now, pay later’ flexible payment options to first our Singapore, and later Malaysian customers, enhancing their shopping experience both online and in our stores.”
David Chen, CEO of Atome, said:
“We’re really humbled to partner Sephora, a global brand that is not only a leader in beauty and retail, but is also constantly evolving and staying on the forefront of the latest consumer shopping behaviours and payment trends.
We’re thrilled to be able to offer Sephora customers in Singapore, and later Malaysia, a safe, easy and flexible payment experience, especially as we enter the festive end-of-year shopping season.”
