How does Klarna work and how can you use it
Klarna offers a no-obligation payment solution that supports the future face of e-commerce. Klarna’s payment solution enables merchants to offer consumers the option to pay or receive their order after they have received and inspected it. This removes a number of risks that were previously associated with purchasing online and means that consumers are more willing to pay for online purchases online.

When a consumer decides to buy a product or service, their details are entered into the merchant’s website and they are then asked whether they wish to pay with cash or with a credit/debit card. If the consumer chooses to pay with Klarna, they will then be supplied with a link that they can share via social media and email. If a friend or family member purchases the item using this link, the user will get free delivery on their order. If the product was ordered directly by the consumer, they will then be asked to enter their details and confirm the shipping address before Klarna pays for the order.
