Klarna reveals new shopping app
Global payments and shopping platform Klarna has announced the launch of its new shopping app, providing customers with a single destination to carry out their online shopping.
Consumers can now shop and pay later at any online store through the app with Klarna’s unique interest-free virtual one time cards.
The platform will allow customers to shop at all stores online, unlock deals and price drop alerts, manage payments and view delivery tracking.
A space to collect loyalty cards, additional money saving tools, live shopping events and integrations powered by third parties will be added soon too.
The launch of Klarna's app follows the continuous growth of mobile commerce, with retail app downloads increasing by 36% in the last two years and in-app purchases by 54%, according to Retail Dive.
Sebastian Siemiatkowski, CEO of Klarna: “Today people seek simplicity that solves their specific needs in one place and enables a range of activities across their shopping journey. Switching between apps is something we as consumers find more and more frustrating.
"Today we are announcing a major milestone on our journey to helping people save time and money and giving them more control over their finances. With the introduction of our new app, Klarna becomes an end-to-end shopping service that caters to many needs. We’ve made transparent and flexible payments a possibility everywhere because we believe no one should ever have to pay credit card fees or high-interest rates.”
The Klarna app is available to download on iOS and Android mobile devices.
