Affirm
We use Affirm with a Woocommerce/Wordpress website and there is a plugin that integrates Affirm for us. We also use a payment method plugin that limits Affirms availability only to products that they support. Generally, we have had a good experience with integration and payments from Affirm to us are consistent and timely. People finance guitars, pedals, and amplifiers and it offers us a way to reach a customer base that may not otherwise purchase from us.

I have yet to find a similar system that is as easy to use and comes with the type of support that Thrive Leads does. Sometimes support is a bit slow, but they always get back to you and nine times out of ten they can fix any problems on the first go. The flexibility of the form plugin itself is also excellent.

Usability
Affirm
Easy to use, simple to integrate, especially if you are using Shopify Plus. Putting everything live and active was easy. We did have to do some simple HTML/CSS to make everything look the way that we wanted it to, but that was very easy and something that we did in house. If you can do some simple style work, you won't have any issues at all.

Thrive Leads can be easily used by anyone who has the basic skills to work within the WordPress environment and who has the knowledge about lead capture and segmentation. As a lead capture tool, I think it's use is restricted to obtaining contact information in different settings, which it does flawlessly.

In general, the support is great. When living in a different time zone, the support can seem slow but it's not. Most of the time, any issues I have get sorted out quickly and if it's not the first time, it generally gets fixed on the second go. Their knowledge base is good too although sometimes it's hard to search. Not usually their fault, more that users don't title their problems better.

We have not used any payment plans before, this was the first for the company.

I've used Optin Monster and Poptin on other projects. Both are good software for different use cases. Poptin is great if you are scrappy, just getting started, and you need a proof of concept and want to keep costs low until you've tested the market. Poptin isn't anywhere near as easy to use as Thrive Leads, but that $0 price tag is meaningful while you are just getting started. OptinMonster isn't as easy or intuitive to use as a builder, but the advantage is that more VAs have used Optin Monster as have used Thrive Leads, so you often don't have to do as much training. I would consider OptinMonster in cases where a website isn't build using Thrive Themes and where an incumbent VA is already well versed in the software.
