Press releases   •   Jan 05, 2015 12:02 GMT

London, UK– December 23, 2014 – Klarna, the leading European online checkout solution has announced today its next step in its UK expansion. Klarna’s payment solution is now available to users of the UK’s leading eCommerce website solution, ekmPowershop, which powers one in five online stores in the UK.

Across the UK, 30,000 online small businesses can access Klarna’s simple-to-use payment solution. Using Klarna, consumers visiting an ekmPowershop store can complete purchases without entering card details and mobile shoppers can experience one-click purchases. Shoppers will also benefit from Klarna’s ‘buy-now, pay-later’ option, meaning they will be able to receive their goods and pay 14 days later, interest free.


“We are immensely proud to be working with the clear market leader in eCommerce solutions,” Paul Stephens, Head of UK Channel Management at Klarna, explains. “As a platform experiencing such an impressive increase in customers every month, they are certainly destined for success.”

ekmPowershop is one of the first platforms to go live with Klarna Checkout in the UK and fuels Klarna’s expansion and success across the country. 


Hickey adds: “We are looking forward to the next 12 months when we expect to see a boost in sales for our online shops as a result of Klarna Checkout.”

Now available in six countries, the platform has helped over 30,000 businesses, large and small, to create easy to use online shops. ekmPowershop clients include O2, Michelin Tyres, The Mirror, Lotus Cars, Prudential and thousands of SMEs.

KLARNA TO EXPAND PAYMENTS SOLUTION TO U.S.

Press releases   •   Sep 19, 2014 10:07 BST

Klarna Taps Executives from Alliance Data, PayPal and Apple to Complete Global Leadership

STOCKHOLM, September 19, 2014 Klarna, a Swedish e-commerce company focused on simplifying buying, today announced plans to expand to the U.S. market in early 2015. A well-known player in Europe for close to a decade, Klarna delivers a much needed payment solution for disenchanted online U.S. retailers and frustrated consumers alike.

To drive U.S. expansion, Klarna has recruited Brian Billingsley from Alliance Data as Chief Executive Officer of North America; former Bill Me Later and PayPal director Carol Hargrave as Chief Marketing Officer; and former Apple payments counsel, Jin Han, as Chief Legal Counsel for North America. Earlier U.S. recruitments include Chief Credit Officer Matthew Risley from Treliant Risk Advisors and Chief Financial Officer John Keatley from Green Dot Corporation.

“U.S. online retailers have grown disillusioned with existing payment solutions as the poor user experience has led to abandoned checkouts and lost sales for years. It’s common that 90 percent or more of consumers entering a mobile checkout do not complete their purchases”, said Brian Billingsley, CEO North America of Klarna. “Klarna has a very simple value proposition: We increase conversion at checkout and assume all the risk. Klarna doesn't win if the retailer doesn't win.”

“We founded Klarna with the vision to simplify buying online. By putting the consumer experience first, we can make the mobile a platform for shopping, and not just browsing”, said Sebastian Siemiatkowski, CEO and co-founder of Klarna. “Across Europe, retailers who use Klarna have seen increased mobile conversion from a few percentages to close to fifty percent on average. That translates directly into more sales for retailers. Now Klarna is extending that opportunity to the United States.”

At its core, Klarna increases simplicity and safety for consumers by separating buying from paying. A consumer making an online purchase enters only top-of-mind information like an email address and zip code to buy an item. From there, Klarna assumes all the risk from the purchase transaction, pays the retailer immediately, and collects the amount due from the consumer within 14 days. Consumers can settle the transaction with any preferred payment method. The process is made possible by Klarna’s proprietary risk assessment protocol. By using advanced data analytics and modeling, Klarna gives approved consumers a seamless buying experience and uses incremental identification to deter potential fraudsters.

“Klarna’s ‘buy now, pay later’ approach means consumers check out quickly and don’t have to pay until they’ve got the goods in their hands”, said Brian Billingsley, Klarna CEO of North America. “For retailers, this means more successful sales and a guarantee that they will get paid immediately, whether or not the consumer reimburses Klarna.”

Klarna has a proven track record in Europe to fuel its success in the United States, including more than 25 million users and 45,000 retailers including ASOS, Spotify and Zara. The company expects revenues of more than $300 million (approximately €250 million) in 2014 and is used for more than 200,000 transactions per day. It is forecasted to help retailers sell more than $9 billion (more than €7 billion) worth of goods this year.

The Klarna Checkout solution works across all platforms but increases conversion particularly on mobile. The average checkout conversion on mobile is between one and ten per cent, depending on industry and type of goods. For Klarna Checkout the equivalent conversion is about fifty percent.  

“The success Klarna has seen in Europe gives me confidence as we enter the U.S. market”, said Billingsley. “I believe our commitment to delivering a streamlined and simple way to buy will become the standard for the industry to follow.”

Klarna is active in 15 European countries and currently holds 10 per cent market share in greater Europe's $100 billion eCommerce market. Some 25 million customers have used the platform and 45,000 registered merchants, including Spotify, Vista Print, Marks & Spencer and ASOS in Germany, have benefited from the increased conversion rates it delivers.

“ASOS has done for ecommerce what the Beatles did for pop and Jon is a rock star. Jon brings a wealth of consumer business experience alongside a proven track record in successful geographical expansion. He’s the perfect fit for our future ambitions and we couldn’t be happier.” said Sebastian Siemiatkowski, CEO and co-founder of Klarna.

The board currently consists of 8 members, including Sir Michael Moritz of Sequoia Capital.

Klarna recently launched its flagship product Klarna Checkout in the UK. After a soft launch with retailer Fitnessguru, it is now widely available to UK retailers.

Klarna was founded in Stockholm in 2005 with the idea of simplifying buying. We do this by letting the consumer receive the goods first and pay afterwards, while we assume the credit and fraud risks for the merchants. Today, Klarna is one of Europe’s fastest growing companies.

“Silver Surfers” are booming e-commerce

Press releases   •   Oct 08, 2013 17:17 BST

Silver Surfers, people online above the age of 65, are the fastest growing customer group in Swedish e-commerce, according to recent statistics from online payment company Klarna. This customer group is quickly gaining ground in online shopping with a consumer’s growth of over 42 %[1] since last year.

Recent statistics from payment company Klarna show that the group of people aged 65 and over is growing approximately twice as fast as the rest of Swedish population when it comes to e-commerce.

Age shows in categories and shopping behaviour

Maybe not too surprising, Health & Beauty is the most popular shopping category for the elderly surfers, followed by Electronics. This differs dramatically from the other age groups where Clothing & Fashion is number one, followed by Leisure & Sport.

As most other Swedes are at work, the Silver Shoppers grabs the opportunity to make online deals. Silver Surfers mostly buy stuff between 15:00-18:00 in the afternoon and prefers to do their shopping on Mondays while the younger population places most orders on Sundays.

The male Silver Surfers are leading the way for their generation, as more then six out of ten 65+ shoppers are men.

Important consumer group for merchants

The group of 65+ is an important audience for merchants looking for further growth. As growth in other age groups is starting to level out, Silver Surfers present a growth opportunity for merchants.

The senior citizens represent a new key audience for Klarna’s products, given the group’s growing presence in the e-marketplace.

“It’s great to see that this group is taking a bigger hold of the Internet and all the benefits that comes with it. I see great benefits for everyone involved, the merchants who can access a stable, attractive group and the Silver Surfers who can take advantage of the convenience and breadth that e-commerce brings,” says Fredrik Lennström, e-commerce expert at Klarna.
