SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Mota Group's LILY® division today announced a new flexible time-payment option, partnering with Affirm to offer shoppers in the United States the flexibility of buying now and making simple monthly payments for their purchases.
This new option is in addition to LILY's existing payment methods of credit and debit cards, Bitcoin, and PayPal, making LILY the only consumer drone company to offer all five methods of payment.
LILY launched its innovative Lily Next-Gen™ drone earlier this month at Drone World Expo. It's a friendly and exceptionally easy-to-use selfie drone that follows the user, recording their adventures in up to 4K ultra HD.
"Partnering with Affirm reduces price as an obstacle for our U.S. customers," said Mota Group President Michael Faro. "We're relentlessly focused on making LILY drones fun and easy for everyone. Drones and robots are becoming essential items in many people's lives. Today's announcement is only the first step to help make drone ownership more accessible and affordable to a larger population. Affirm is a great way to make it easy for people to afford a fully featured consumer drone whenever they want it."
Affirm is a highly popular financial services company. Started by PayPal co-founder Max Levchin, its benefits include a fast loan decision process and monthly payments with terms that can be more advantageous than standard credit cards, such as paying for purchases with simple-interest loans that are free of penalty fees—annual, late, deferred or otherwise.
LILY customers may select Affirm at checkout and view their monthly payments up front before making their purchase. More information and purchasing options are available at www.lily.camera/affirm.
Lily Next-Gen is flyable indoors and out, with geofencing, downward object avoidance and automatic return to home to help keep it safe. With multiple one-touch functions, including flight controls and video and photo sharing, Lily Next-Gen can stay aloft for up to 18 minutes and be flown up to 3,280 feet away.* Folding to just the width of a smartphone and weighing only 14.6 oz., it can be taken anywhere in its handy totable carry case.
