  • Klarna, one of the world’s leading payment platforms for offering consumers flexible payment options, has confirmed a new partnership with Global-e.
  • The new arrangement will see Klarna’s payments services available to merchants through Global-e’s cross-border e-commerce platform.
  • “Our continued partnership with Global-e enables international retailers to offer their customers across the US, UK, France, Spain, Italy, and Australia alternative payment solutions while providing them with greater payment flexibility,” said a senior figure at Klarna.

Klarna, a major global retail payments service, has paired up with a cross-border payments platform for e-commerce merchants as part of a new payments push.

The company said that it had made the arrangement with Global-e, which is listed on the NASDAQ stock exchange, to make new flexible payment services available to customers in a range of markets.

These markets will include the UK, the US, Australia, Spain, Italy and France.

Users of Global-e’s e-commerce platform in those areas will now be able to use Klarna’s innovative payment services.

The new arrangement comes off the back of an existing partnership between the two companies.

That partnership, which was set up back in 2017, focused on Austria, Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands and a number of Scandinavian countries.

According to a senior leader at Klarna, the arrangement comes amid a context of increased demand from customers when it comes to payments flexibility.

Luke Griffiths, the company’s chief commercial officer, said that Klarna was aiming to meet that demand.

“We’re seeing consumers globally demanding more choice and flexibility when shopping online and our payment options are proven to provide that flexibility and assist merchants in driving customer acquisition and conversion,” he said.

“Our continued partnership with Global-e enables international retailers to offer their customers across the US, UK, France, Spain, Italy, and Australia alternative payment solutions while providing them with greater payment flexibility.”

Global-e’s co-founder and chief operating officer said that he recognised how popular Klarna’s offer was.

Shahar Tamari said that his company was committed to helping e-commerce sellers enhance their market shares on a global scale.

“Klarna’s buy now, pay later solutions are proving popular as online shoppers seek additional flexibility and the convenience to pay in whatever way suits their needs,” he said.

“Our partnership with Klarna further fuels our commitment to enable merchants to seamlessly expand their brand globally by offering customers worldwide a top-notch localized experience from the moment they start engaging with retailers’ online channels right up to checkout.”
