Frequently Asked Questions

Klarna acquired Sofort In 2014 and the payment method has now been integrated under the Klarna product range.

It depends on how you want to use the payment option. Klarna Pay Now is already integrated in the Klarna checkout, so you don’t have to do anything else. All payment methods that your customers can select at checkout are displayed.

Making payments faster, safer, and easier to use is one of the most reliable ways to increase sales. We also often see an increase in order values as customers are more comfortable making payments, which makes them more likely to return too.

We use open banking standards, which are safe by design. When shopping online, your customers use their own familiar online banking details, but confidential login details and confirmation codes aren’t stored and are never visible to you or any other third party, including Klarna.
