Klarna is excited to bring “smoooth” shopping to Kiwis with the launch of our interest-free ‘Pay in 4’ options. Kiwi consumers can now buy online and split their purchases into four interest-free equal payments through both the Klarna app and directly via integrated partner.

In the Klarna app, Kiwi shoppers can ‘Pay in 4’ at any online store, regardless of whether they are a Klarna retailer or not, thanks to the innovative ‘Shop Anywhere’ function. The app also offers consumers convenience, inspiration and value with features such as the ability to keep track of payments, saving favourite items to wish lists and receive price drop notifications when those items go on sale. The app is available to download for iOS and Android mobile devices today.

Similarly, shoppers who use Klarna at a partner retailer’s online checkout will also be able to split their purchase with the interest-free payment option. Klarna is teaming up with retailers including Cotton On Group, Hanes Group and Kookaï.

Klarna’s global expertise and services will help New Zealand retailers meet consumers’ rapidly increasing demand for smarter, flexible and more personalised shopping experiences that better suit their lifestyle.

Our CEO and Co-Founder Sebastian Siemiatkowski said that our launch in NZ will help retailers better meet shoppers’ ever-growing expectations of ecommerce.

“Klarna is focused on elevating the shopping experience for consumers,” Sebastian said. “Retail is changing at a rapid pace and more than ever, consumers demand transparent and intuitive services which better meet their needs. We know Kiwis are sophisticated online shoppers who seek convenience but are mindful of smart spending and are moving away from traditional forms of credit with interest and fees. That’s why Klarna focuses on offering innovative shopping solutions that allow consumers to take control and shop on their own terms, saving them time and eliminating hassle.”
