In this article, you'll learn:
- How to connect your Sezzle account.
Sezzle is a popular "buy now, pay later" option that allows your shoppers to purchase items today and make four interest-free payments over a six-week period.
Sezzle charges shops a percentage of the total order amount to keep the option interest-free to customers. While shoppers will pay for their orders from their account page or your mobile app, payments run through Sezzle—CommentSold does not hold any of these funds.
Sezzle is one of several payment gateways you can connect to CommentSold. Learn about other available payment gateways here.
How Sezzle Benefits Your Shop
- Allow shoppers to split payments into four installments, which encourages them to place larger orders.
- Increase revenue and overall customer retention. CommentSold data shows customers are 21% more likely to make repeat purchases from a shop using Sezzle versus other payment processors.
- Receive a customer's total order amount, less the fee deducted by Sezzle, immediately.
