Klarna have announced yet another partnership, this time with the financial platform Stripe. Retailers using Stripe can now activate Klarna as the preferred payment method in their checkout within minutes, providing a superior shopping experience to consumers.
“Over the past years, Klarna and Stripe redefined the e-commerce experience for millions of consumers and global retailers. Together with Stripe, we will be a true growth partner for our retailers of all sizes, allowing them to maximize their entrepreneurial success through our joint services. By offering convenience, flexibility, and control to even more shoppers, we create a win-win situation for both retailers and consumers alike.”
– Koen Köppen, Chief Technology Officer, Klarna
The first results of retailers using Stripe show that the integration of Klarna’s payment method led to an average 27% increase in sales. On average, retailers using Klarna see a 41% upsurge in average order volume and a 36% increase in purchase frequency – which subsequently led to an increase in revenue. Additionally, some retailers experienced that 40% of Klarna shoppers are new to their brand, demonstrating that Klarna’s rapidly growing consumer app with more than 18m monthly users has become a true lead generator.
In addition to enabling retailers to activate Klarna in their checkout, both companies have also announced plans to strengthen the partnership even further. Stripe is now Klarna’s preferred payments partner for consumer purchases pre-funded by Klarna in the US and Canada. Tests with Stripe’s services have resulted in significantly improved performance rates. For that reason, Klarna has shifted more payment processing volume to them than initially planned, and partners with Stripe for the majority of its payments volume in the US and Canada.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Klarna so millions of businesses on Stripe globally can offer increased payment flexibility. Klarna’s payment options are a powerful tool for online businesses to attract more customers, boost conversion rates, increase basket sizes, and thus grow their revenue.”
– Will Gaybrick, Chief Product Officer, Stripe
