Klarna was founded in Stockholm in 2005 with the idea to simplify buying. Today, we are one of Europe’s fastest growing companies. In 2014 we joined forces with SOFORT and formed Klarna Group, the leading European payment provider.

Klarna streamlines one solution for all payments, saving you both time and money on administration. New customers only need to enter top-of-mind information including email, zip code and billing address. For returning customers, it's a one tap payment experience.
Simplicity that significantly improves your average order value as well as conversion, both in the short- and long term.
