Checkout Plugins – Stripe for WooCommerce supports Klarna as a payment method. This document will show you how to set up and use Klarna with Stripe for your online store.
What Is Klarna?
Klarna is an online payment method that offers users a convenient way to pay. It is based on a “buy now, pay later” service where users can purchase online without paying in advance.
“Buy now, pay later” means that Klarna will pay the full amount on behalf of the customer. Next, the customer will be paying the whole amount to Klarna for the purchases made, but in installments. This option is available in a limited number of supported countries.
This payment option needs to be integrated with the online store to enable users to complete purchases using Klarna.
