“The expansion of Citizens Pay into Microsoft Store allows consumers added flexibility and responsible financing options across all Microsoft products,” said Andrew Rostami, President of Citizens Pay. “Citizens has a long history of working closely with leading brands to offer the best and most innovative financial experience, and this expansion brings alternative financing to Microsoft Store and its millions of customers.”

Citizens Pay will be offering 12- and 18-month installment terms nationally through its innovative Line of Credit payment structure that enables consumers to make subsequent purchases with no additional credit checks.

“This partnership with Citizens allows us to bring this new offering to consumers in time for the holidays,” said Jesper Chou, General Manager, Microsoft Store. “Consumers are very interested in innovative solutions that allow them to purchase the latest products in an affordable manner.”
