Klarna Payment – What Makes it so Special?


Reaching new customers by offering an alternative to regular payment providers, the benefits of choosing the likes of Klarna.

We are getting more and more clients requesting for Klarna payment to be added to their eCommerce stores. Klarna allows you to buy now pay later, which many Millennials are enjoying the benefits of this; also, the companies that are including Klarna within their payment process are noting greater returns and brand loyalty. You can also utilise Klarna to make purchases within selected stores, creating even greater brand loyalty.

Brian Billingsley the CEO of Klarna explains: “The goal is to reduce friction and creates a greater user experience, allowing consumers to sale right through checkout.”

I don’t know whether I totally agree with Brian’s explanation; however, the key here is that these payments systems make it a priority at getting your customers through the checkout process as fast as possible, which obviously is a benefit to merchants who want to lower shoppers abandoning their carts when it comes to pay and by hiring the likes of Klarna who offer instant finance options assists in keeping the customer fixed to the merchants final goal of a sale and that’s not a bad thing for the merchant.
