Klarna’s Buyer Protection.

If there’s a problem with a purchase you’ve made using one of Klarna’s payment methods, Klarna’s Buyer Protection Policy will support you when you need to open a dispute with a merchant.*

*Please note that this policy doesn’t cover your purchases made with the Klarna Card or the Klarna Credit account, see respective terms for details.

Find out how this process works below, including the information you’ll need to provide to Klarna, and when to direct your questions to the merchant.

Once you’ve reported a problem following the steps below, Klarna will pause your payment until the issue is solved. If you’ve fully or partially paid for a purchase upfront, we’ll refund your payment if the dispute is resolved in your favor. In the event of any refunds, we’ll send the funds to the same source you used to make your payment.

Klarna’s Buyer Protection Policy is here to reassure you that you can shop safely and securely with Klarna.

Please note that in the event that you have rights that fall under mandatory consumer protection legislation—and that go beyond what’s covered by Buyer Protection—those rights are not affected by this policy.

This policy is in effect for all orders made after 13 April 2022.

If you’d like to return all, or parts, of the goods you’ve bought:

  1. Report the return to Klarna.
    Find your purchase in the Klarna app, and tap ‘Report a return.’ If you need help, contact our customer service.
  2. Return the goods.
    Return the goods as soon as possible—make sure to follow the merchant’s return policy. IMPORTANT: Keep the return tracking information, and have it ready to share if we ask for it.
  3. If the return doesn’t get solved in time, we’ll request some information from you (such as the return tracking information) and support you in resolving the case. If you did not follow the merchant’s return policy and therefore the merchant doesn’t accept the return, we’ll reactivate your payment obligations and you’ll need to pay Klarna for the purchase you’ve made.
