Irish customers can shop with Klarna at all retailers, through the Klarna app
Klarna has launched in Ireland, according to the official press release. This way, Irish consumers will be able to shop online and split their purchases into 3 interest-free equal payments through both the Klarna app and directly via integrated partner retailers.
Klarna’s launch comes as Irish consumers shift away from credit cards towards debit for most of their day-to-day spend. Spending on debit cards grew three times faster than credit cards between 2015 and 2020.
Similarly, consumers who use Klarna at a partner retailer’s online checkout will be able to split their purchases interest-free.
With a range of domestic and international retailers including Gym + Coffee, Perspective, Yummie, Cult Beauty, Greene’s Shoes, Luna by Lisa and Yours Clothing all teaming up with Klarna, consumers will benefit from choice over how they pay.
Klarna’s launch will help Irish merchants, both big and small, adapt to a shifting retail landscape enabling them to improve their customer experience in response to changing consumer preferences whilst accessing a much wider community of global consumers.
