      Affirm loans' APR never exceeds 30%, and a large chunk of our loans have 0% interest, subsidized by the merchant. We have no late fees, or any other fees except the interest charge which we tell you up front.

      I did see that. Forgive my smugness. Anonymity encorages that. Keep up the good work. Having said that, you guys are more akin to Rent-a-center? I know a dude who once financed 1800 bucks for a six hundred dollars couch.

      Haven't heard of them, just checked their website. Affirm is not a rent to own model, it's just a point-of-sale loan with no collateral. If you got a year-long loan with us, you could never pay more in interest than around 20% of your purchase price.

      Yeah, it certainly looks like it since a couple of crucial members left recently too.

    I joined as a new grad with TC (base plus options) worth ~$180k/year valuing the options at (preferred price minus strike price). Cannot accurately say for someone coming in with experience but it's probably not that much higher. I think you have to hope for valuation to rise for comp to be competitive with FANG

      No! In fact we do not even finance alcohol/gun purchases.

    Can't see how we are going to have much more growth unfortunately. If you didn't come in 2.5+ years ago, might as well go FANG
