Afterpay’s Laura Nadler on the new loyalty program and expansion plans in the U.S.

Afterpay is one of the fastest growing buy now, pay later firms in the world. Based out of Australia, the fintech has recently expanded into the US and is planning to expand to Canada soon, as well.

Afterpay US CFO Laura Nadler joins us on the podcast to discuss Afterpay’s model and how positioning itself as a partner to retailers has helped it chart a path for growth. Nadler has spent most of her career at traditional financial firms like Visa and we talk about the tailwinds in the business and how COVID is impacting customers and merchants alike.

We also discuss Afterpay’s launch of a new loyalty program.

When they weren’t acting like big companies.
