UK: Moss Bros. partners with Klarna to let shoppers buy first and pay later

4 September 2018 — Today, leading payments provider Klarna has announced a partnership with Moss Bros. — the UK’s leading men’s formalwear specialist.

An institution on Britain’s high streets, Moss Bros. Group plc has grown from a single stall at Covent Garden in 1851 to 129 stores around the United Kingdom, providing quality tailoring to generations of men.

Moss Bros. online customers can now use Klarna’s Pay later to pay for their items up to 14 days later, with no interest or fees. The payment option allows shoppers to try items on at home and only keep what they love, before parting with any money. Moss Bros. is the latest retailer to adopt Klarna’s Pay later, which has been proven to boost sales and increase purchase frequency at many leading fashion retailers.

Commenting on the partnership, Luke Griffiths, Klarna’s UK General Manager said: “Allowing consumers to try before they buy is just one of the ways we aim to make online shopping a smoother and more convenient experience. As the retail landscape evolves, especially in fashion, our partnership with Moss Bros. shows their strong commitment to providing the best service for their customers in an increasingly competitive environment.”

Matt Henton, Head of Ecommerce at Moss Bros., added: “We’re constantly on the lookout for new ways to provide our customers with a better experience throughout their entire purchasing journey, and payments are an intrinsic part of this. The key benefit of Pay later is clear – we can now let shoppers buy several items, try goods on at home and return what they don’t want, with no money exchanging hands until they’re happy. We’re really looking forward to working with Klarna and improving the online payments process for our customers, while boosting their purchase power and providing more choice at the checkout.”
