Afterpay has announced the launch of the virtual card for in-store payments across Australia.

This way, customers can make a purchase in stores by tapping the card icon in the Afterpay app, which activates the Afterpay card in the digital wallet app. It can be used to make purchases with Apple Pay or Google Pay.

Just like using Afterpay online, customers can pay for their in-store purchases in 4 installment payments, eliminating the need to take out a traditional loan or pay upfront fees or interest.

Over the past five years we have built a strong in-store offering, with tens of thousands of merchants currently offering Afterpay in-store in Australia. The new Afterpay virtual card, which will sit in a customer's digital wallet, is an evolution of our offering, making it even easier for millions of our Australian customers to split their in-store payments in four installments without incurring interest - ever
