A spokesperson for Walmart told that customers’ needs have changed throughout the past year and they’re confident that their payment options “provide the right solutions for our customers.”

Shoppers will now have a “buy now, pay later” option through Affirm, a third-party company partnered with Walmart offering affordable monthly payments depending on their eligibility. Instead of putting items on layaway from August through mid-December, shoppers will now have the option to take the item home immediately.

Walmart will continue to offer layaway options on select jewelry items at select stores throughout the U.S, the spokesperson confirmed.
