Afterpay provides budget tool for parents concerned about new school year expenses
Sydney, Australia, 12 January 2017 –
Leading retail payments innovator Afterpay is now available at Australia’s largest specialty athletic and school shoe retailer, The Athlete’s Foot.
Introduced in time for back to school 2017, The Athlete’s Foot has implemented Afterpay online and in-store across Australia, helping parents budget expenses for the new school year and providing much needed financial relief at the end of the holiday period.
According to Back to School Research completed by Haymakr in March 2016, 65% of mums in Australia want to buy their children better quality school shoes but are constrained by budget. In addition, at the beginning of every school year, children need both sports shoes and school shoes for the year ahead, however only 32% of mums in January 2016 bought their children sports shoes at the same time as buying them their school shoes.
The Athlete’s Foot offers high quality school and sports shoes, including Clarks and the exclusive brand Ascent, coupled with an expert fitting service, ensuring parents value for money and quality product giving them peace of mind for the year ahead.
