What is Klarna and how does it work?
Klarna was founded in 2005 in Stockholm with the goal of simplify payments. Klarna developed solutions which make it possible for consumers to pay after receiving the order.
MultiSafepay enables you to offer Klarna to your customers with payments by invoice. With Klarna, the consumer receives the products and pays within 14 days. The purchase process is simplified as your customer only needs to enter his/her personal details, additional information such as bank details are not required.
Where is Klarna available?
Klarna is available in the following countries: Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands and Austria.
By offering a ‘pay after’ solution in your webshop, you enable a conversion-increasing payment method. The consumer does not have to pay immediately, but can postpone payment until 14 days after receiving the order. In order to provide extra services to your consumer, it is also possible to postpone the payment by 10 days after the initial 14 days.
