Retailers are making shopping easier for customers who need more time to pay things off.

The coronavirus pandemic has forced millions of Americans out of work, leaving them strapped for cash and looking for ways to manage their budget.

Buy now, pay later options like Afterpay, Affirm, Klarna and Paypal are becoming more popular.

Installment plans can range from 4 to 10 weeks.

Consumer experts say you should be fully aware of the rules and fees on those installment sites before you make the buy.
