About Klarna Payment Gateway

Customers can pay for goods and services when they have been received, allowing them to trust small and new shops by relying on Klarna to take care of them. By the same token, Klarna assumes the risk for shop owners, by covering the payments for your products whatever happens.

Klarna currently covers merchants and customers in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Germany and the Netherlands.

The Klarna Payment Gateway for Jigoshop allows you to implement Klarna Invoice, Klarna Account and Klarna Special Campaign (Standard Integration Type).

  • Klarna Invoice will allow customers to receive goods before making a payment, at which point they are invoiced by Klarna.
  • Klarna Account allows customers to aggregate multiple purchases, or make large purchases and pay them off in installments.
  • Klarna Special Campaign allows for offers such as ‘Buy now, pay in 6 months’ by setting specific payment dates for Klarna customers to pay for their orders.
