Klarna Financing FAQs
Financing Fixed Sum Credit
Frequently Asked Questions
We have partnered with Klarna to offer interest-free credit as an option when purchasing with us. With the Klarna Financing payment plan, you can spread your payments over 6, 12 or 24 months.
Who is Klarna?
Klarna is a Swedish payment service provider that takes end-to-end responsibility for your payment. Klarna is the provider of smooth payments to more than 200,000 online stores. Over 90 million consumers worldwide have trusted Klarna to securely handle their payments.
How do I place an order using Financing with Klarna?
Purchasing with Klarna Financing is simple. Add the product you wish to purchase to your basket and proceed to the checkout as normal. Then select the “Pay Over Time” payment method. This will start your application with Klarna Financing. You will then be asked to provide some basic information, followed by details required to check your eligibility. If you’re approved, your payment plan will be created and your order will be automatically placed with us. It’s a short application and you won't have to leave our website.
What details do I need to provide when I make my purchase?
You will need to provide your name, billing address, email address and phone number, as well as some basic employment and bank details.
Will I be required to pay anything when I apply?
In some cases, Klarna may offer finance contingent on the applicant paying a portion of the balance up front. If this is the case, you will be prompted to make a deposit during the application flow.
Am I eligible?
To be eligible for Klarna credit products you must be at least 18 years old and a UK resident. Your application approval is subject to Klarna's review of your financial circumstances and a full credit search.
If I apply for Klarna Financing, will this affect my credit score?
When you apply for Financing with Klarna, Klarna will make a full credit search with credit reference agencies who supply Klarna with credit information. The agencies will record details of the search, which can be seen on your credit file, whether or not credit is granted. This record will also be visible to third parties and may affect other organisations’ future decisions on whether or not to provide you with credit. For any questions relating to the credit check process, contact Klarna’s customer support team.
What if I am late or miss a payment?
Your monthly payment must reach Klarna by the payment due date.
Klarna will also report information to credit reference agencies about the payments you make, and about any payments that you fail to make on time. Late or missing repayments may have serious consequences for you and cause you serious money problems. Your credit rating may be affected which will make it more difficult or more expensive for you to obtain credit in the future. If at any time you miss consecutive payments, Klarna may serve you a default notice requiring you to repay what you owe. If you fail to do so, Klarna may terminate the Agreement and assign or sell the debt to a debt collection agency who will become responsible for recovering the debt themselves.
If you are having trouble making repayments, please get in touch with Klarna customer service via the support section of the Klarna app or via Klarna’s customer support page.
Will I receive an email confirmation when purchasing with Klarna Financing?
If you have selected the Klarna Financing option to pay for your purchase, Klarna will send you an email confirming your purchase details. The email will contain a link to Klarna’s online portal or to download the app, where you can manage your purchases with Klarna. It is essential that you provide accurate information during checkout to ensure that you can receive Klarna’s communications.
Can I set up automatic monthly repayments?
During the Klarna Financing application you will be asked to set up a Direct Debit Mandate from your bank account. Klarna will draw your monthly instalments from your bank account automatically via this Direct Debit Mandate so you don’t need to do anything.
How long will it take until I receive my refund?
As soon as the store has registered your cancellation or your return, we will credit the balance back to you or process a refund within the next 5 business days.
I purchased my item on a Klarna Financing plan and I would like to return it.
