Klarna launches in Poland at a time when ecommerce is rapidly developing.

And there is a huge demand for being able to pay after delivery. 29% say they would have used “Pay later” for their latest purchase if available. While 3 in 4 (77%) know about the option, only 1 in 4 have tried. 7 in 10 (69%) would trust a retailer more if it offered a pay later solution and 62% believe they would return as a customer more often.
