Vitamix Adds PayPal Payments, Flexible Financing Options

No-interest monthly payment plans from PayPal Credit make Vitamix products even more accessible.

CLEVELAND, April 5, 2016 – Vitamix, a world leader in high-performance blending equipment, has teamed with PayPal, a global leader in digital payments, to offer consumers more convenient ways to pay when purchasing Vitamix household products online. PayPal is now accepted on Vitamix.com, and with PayPal Credit’s Easy Payments plans, consumers have the opportunity to own a high-quality Vitamix blender and pay in predictable monthly payments from 12 months up to 18 months with no interest if paid in full within the selected plan term1.

“PayPal sets the global standard for payment technologies,” said Anthony Ciepiel, COO of Vitamix. “It has a large, established audience of consumers who will only trust PayPal for their online transactions. At Vitamix, we believe we offer a life-changing product, and we are always looking at new ways to make that product more accessible to a wider audience. By working with PayPal, we can help customers avoid having to choose between the highest quality and the best price.”

Vitamix blenders have the power needed to pulverize ingredients, releasing flavors and making healthy, tasty, whole-food nutrition a reality for millions of owners worldwide.

“For many people, Vitamix has long been the 'someday' product. We want to make it the 'now' product for them,” said Holly Hacker, director of direct sales and customer experience at Vitamix. "Making Vitamix machines more widely available to a larger audience helps us better fulfill our organizational vision to improve the vitality of people's lives.”
