Klarna provides e-commerce payment solutions for merchants and shoppers. Klarna streamlines one solution for all payments, saving both time and money on administration. New customers only need to enter top-of-mind information including email, zip code and billing address.
Klarna separates buying from paying by allowing buyers to pay for ordered goods after receiving them, providing them with a safe after delivery payment solution. At the same time, Klarna assumes all credit and fraud risk for e-stores so that sellers can rest assured that they will always receive their money. Klarna’s vision is to enable trust and to offer a frictionless buying experience to buyers and sellers across the world.
