They share the ambition to make Klarna’s online payment solutions affordable to more retailers in Europe.
The expansion builds on previous successful launches in Scandinavia, Germany, Austria and Switzerland. This now offers Worldline retailers in the Netherlands, Belgium and the United Kingdom the opportunity to provide their customers with a friction-free shopping experience with Klarna’s full range of payment options. Klarna’s payment solutions enable retailers to provide customers with more flexibility, transparency and convenience when shopping online. As a result of the partnership, Worldline and Klarna can complement each other’s services. In addition, Klarna can expand its customer base and strengthen its brand position among consumers. For example, shoppers can checkout seamlessly and without hassle with Klarna’s easy-to-use checkout.
“By integrating Klarna into the global payment platform, we fulfill our mission to support retailers in increasing their efficiency and driving growth. Research shows that nearly half of customers will cancel their purchases if their preferred payment method is not offered. The introduction of a wide range of popular payment methods helps retailers increase their conversionVincent Cosment, Head of BeNeLux at Worldline says.
“We are pleased to partner with Worldline and in this way we are helping all of its merchants to grow. In the past year, drastic changes have occurred in the retail business. This ensured that the Internet became the dominant sales channel in all sectors. Together with Worldline, we are enabling retailers to adapt to these changes and provide consumers with a better online customer experienceSays Wilko Klasen, General Manager of Klarna Belgium, the Netherlands and France. “Klarna payment solutions allow to respond quickly to changing customer needs, and increase sales while increasing customer satisfaction and loyalty.”
