Klarna: How does it work?

In the ever-evolving landscape of online commerce, the need for secure, convenient, and flexible payment solutions has never been greater. Klarna, a Swedish fintech powerhouse, has emerged as a key player in this space, reshaping the way we shop online.  

  1. Buy Now, Pay Later (BNPL): A standout feature of Klarna is its Buy Now, Pay Later (BNPL) model. This allows users to make a purchase and defer the payment, often splitting the total amount into manageable instalments. This flexibility empowers consumers, making higher-value items more accessible and budget-friendly.

  2. The Checkout Process: Klarna has redefined the checkout experience. When a user selects Klarna as their payment method, they are prompted to enter minimal information. This user-friendly approach significantly reduces the steps involved in completing a transaction, leading to higher conversion rates and lower cart abandonment.

How it works:

  • When making your purchase, simply choose Klarna as your payment option at checkout and proceed.
  • Provide basic information, and you will receive an instant notification about the acceptance of your purchase.
  • Shortly after, you'll receive a confirmation email containing details about your purchase, including due dates and other valuable information.
  • If you have any inquiries regarding your purchase, you can reach out to Klarna's customer service at any time, or refer to our comprehensive Customer Service FAQs for assistance.




  • Your purchase is sliced into 3 equal payments. 
  • The first payment is made when the order is shipped. The rest of the payment is collected in 30 days.
  • No fees. No interest and no credit check. No impact on your Credit score.
