Ally Lending Announces Relationship With Sezzle
Ally Lending, the personal lending arm of Ally Bank, a subsidiary of Ally Financial Inc. is adding to its retail market lending offerings via an agreement with Sezzle, a fast-growing installment payments platform. The news comes on the heels of an announcement to partner with Vyze, Mastercard's leading alternative financing platform for retailers.

Ally's latest announcement in the "buy now, pay later" space comes as this emerging segment continues to gain traction with American consumers. According to a recent study of approximately 2,000 consumers1, 81% of those surveyed said they would use installment payments, if available. In addition, 65% said they would come back to a store or website more often if it offered installment payments.

"Our relationship with Sezzle is part of Ally's partnership-driven growth strategy, and it supports our customer-first mindset. We're dedicated to offering flexible payment solutions for consumers across a range of price points as they shop their favorite stores," says Hans Zandhuis, head of Ally Lending. "Now, more than ever, consumers are looking for user-friendly, affordable financial tools that simplify their lives. This new agreement is another example of how Ally is addressing these demands."
