Shoppers in the US will be able to pay using Klarna’s installments just in time for the holiday season
New York, NY (October 20, 2020) – Klarna, the leading global Buy Now, Pay Later provider and shopping service, today announced that Etsy, the global destination for unique and creative goods, launched its ‘Buy Now, Pay Later’ solution. US buyers on Etsy.com, including many millennial and Gen Z shoppers, can now use this flexible payment option to shop for everything they love—from handcrafted pieces to vintage treasures created by millions of small creative businesses.
The global roll out of Klarna’s flexible ways to pay will begin in the US, and Etsy expects to roll out Klarna’s flexible payment options in other core markets in 2021. Klarna’s ‘Pay later’ solution for Etsy is enabled by Adyen, the payments platform of choice for many of the world’s leading companies.
“We’re excited to work with Klarna to expand the number of payment options available to shoppers through Etsy Payments,” said Kruti Patel Goyal, Etsy’s Chief Product Officer. “Klarna will enable shoppers to buy on Etsy with greater financial control and convenience, without additional fees for sellers.
