As we dive into November, the anticipation in the air is palpable. The onset of this month marks the beginning of our journey towards the peak season. With Black Friday and the holiday shopping frenzy steadily gaining momentum, we’re gearing up for an exhilarating ride ahead. Here’s a glimpse of what’s propelling us forward:
🏆 We’re proud to remain the consumers’ choice as the number one Buy Now, Pay Later app in the US by PYMNTS BNPL ranking. A massive thank you to our community for making this possible
🤖 We held our bi-annual product announcement, Spotlight, where we introduced a diverse array of innovative products throughout the entire shopping journey. Powered by AI, these expansions allow us to seamlessly bridge the gap between in-store, online, and the Klarna app, and make the world truly shoppable.
🇪🇺 Our CEO Sebastian Siemiatkowski went to Luxembourg and met with 27 finance ministers from across the European Union. Sebastian shared his remarkable journey of scaling a tech start-up from scratch to a global presence in 45 countries, and what politicians could do to foster even more growth and better outcomes for consumers in the EU.
🛒 This month is all about expanding our partnerships as many retailers gear up for the upcoming peak season! Among our most exciting updates, we’re thrilled to announce that Decathlon is now live in Spain and Walmart has launched in Canada!
