Klarna was founded in 2005 to create safer, simpler and more fun online shopping. We do this by letting the consumer receive the goods first and pay afterwards, while we assume the credit and fraud risks on goods from the e-stores. The goal is to allow sellers and buyers across the world to shop with each other – smoothly and seamlessly. We currently have more than 600 people working on exactly that. Together, Klarna has an established presence in six European countries, but we are not satisfied with that. We want our existing stores to have the opportunity to sell to even more people, and we want to offer more fun payment solutions to our consumers.
With Klarna invoice, your customers can shop easily by only giving minimal information and avoiding long registration processes. The customer also receives the goods first and pays later, which makes shopping safe.
