Payment processing platform Klarna announced on Thursday it has launched in Belgium by introducing “Pay in 21 days” service. Klarna reported that shoppers will now be able to buy online and pay once they have received the goods.
“With the launch of `Pay in 21 days’, Belgian shoppers can now purchase their goods from their favourite online stores and try them before footing the bill. The payment solution comes at no interest or fee when users pay on time. Along with the new offer, Klarna is also introducing the Klarna app which allows users to keep track of their payments, pay off existing payments, as well as find inspiration.”
Among the shops included in the service are H&M, A.S. Adventure, and Omoda. Sebastian Siemiatkowski, CEO and Co-Founder of Klarna, spoke about the service by stating:
“Retail is changing at a rapid pace due to rising expectations from Belgian consumers. More than ever, consumers demand transparent and efficient shopping services that match their daily needs. We believe the future of retail is high tech powering high touch experiences, so regardless of how and when consumers want to shop and pay, we need to be there for them. That’s why we focus on unique shopping solutions that allow consumers to take control and shop on their own terms.”
The launch in Belgium comes just days after Klarna announced its collaboration with deposits marketplace Raisin to launch a cooperative in Germany.
“In a first for Klarna, and available exclusively to Raisin’s customers in Germany, the new products include an overnight money account with a competitive interest rate of 0.35%. The Klarna deposit products from overnight to terms of up to 48 months are accessible through a completely online process via WeltSparen.”
