Afterpay launches Money app 

Buy now, pay later business Afterpay is launching a money management app.

In Brief: 

The “Money” app has been built in partnership with Westpac. 

It works on Westpac’s banking-as-a-service (BaaS) platform. 

It will show customers their current “buy now, pay later” balance and instalments, alongside their normal spending and savings accounts.
