Together, PrestaShop and Klarna Are Changing the Way People Shop Online

As cool and convenient as online shopping can be, one major drawback for consumers is that they don’t get to see or feel a product before rendering payment. But what if the world of e-commerce was more like our physical world? What if you could touch the products you order online before actually paying for them? Well, with Klarna, now you can!

That’s right. You read it. Klarna, PrestaShop’s newest partner, offers a revolutionary payment solution that allows customers to pay for products purchased online after delivery… not before!
To make the delivery of goods possible before payment, Klarna offers two options to consumers, Klarna Account and Klarna Invoice.

Klarna Invoice– When shopping in a physical storefront, consumers get to see and feel products before paying for them. This way, they can always make sure they’re paying for exactly what they want. Klarna Invoice works much the same way for online shoppers. Only disclosing top-of-the-head information such as name, address, birthdate and e-mail at the purchase moment, online shoppers get the goods delivered first and make the payments later. As an online shop you will decrease the rate of abandoned shopping carts in your checkout, leading to increased conversion and boosted sales.

Klarna Account – The Klarna Account oOption is perfect for consumers who want to put all of their online purchases onto one bill. The best thing is the invoice will always come at the end of the next month, giving shoppers even more time to make the actual payment. Klarna Account also offers an installment payment option, which allows consumers to decide how much of their balance they want to pay each month.

Klarna’s unique payment processing solution ensures buyers will never be charged for anything they haven’t seen first. Therefore, it’s like shopping in an actual store without ever having to leave the comforts of home.

PrestaShop users will be thrilled to know that Klarna’s incredible payment solution is included as a native feature inside PrestaShop v1.5′s source code. Therefore, all that’s needed for PrestaShop users to take advantage of Klarna’s revolutionary payment solution is to sign up.

With PrestaShop and Klarna, the future of e-commerce is upon us. Sign up online today!

    Unfortunately, this module Version 1.6.8 on 1.5.3.1 (clean install) doesn’t work properly. I refer to this: http://forge.prestashop.com/browse/PNM-998

    Hi,

    Is the module working now? Was impossible to use it properly a couple of weeks back?

    Not much use to those of us in North America.

  4. If the customer receives the invoice at the end of the month with options as to payment method when exactly does the store owner get paid?

  5. John: Takes about 2-3 weeks to get the money for the store owner, we use Klarna and are very happy with the simplicity of the Klarna solution. Of course, we have to wait for the money, but its a way to gain confidence with customers

      Hi Markus, I agree, the wait is not a big deal when you compare it to the amount of loyal and trusted customers you gain for life!

  6. The owner gets paid after ca 30 days. The full amount (minus fees) of the order.
