klarna

Many retailers and online stores have investigated and implemented alternative payment options to make it possible for consumers to purchase products despite them not having the cash on hand. These options include flexible financing and monthly installment payment options through third parties.

This takes some financial strain off consumers as it allows them to ‘buy now, pay later’. A few of these third-party apps include Afterpay, Affirm, Klarna, and PayPal (through their own solution called Pay 4).

Chosgo Hearing Aids offers customers the option of paying through Klarna to make the purchase experience easier. Find out more about what Klarna is and how it works below.

What is Klarna?
In 2005 Klarna was founded in Stockholm, Sweden. Since then it expanded its payment solutions to 205,000 merchants in nearly 20 countries and is used by approximately 90 million shoppers. Their promise to consumers is: ‘Klarna is the smoothest & safest way to get what you want today and pay over time. No Catch. Just Klarna.’.

Klarna allows consumers to ‘buy now, pay later’ by securing a small loan for both online and in-store purchases through the Klarna app. There are four different options where customers can pay in 4 interest-free payments, pay in 30 days, get monthly financing or pay immediately with a debit or credit card.
 
Is a credit check needed?
In some cases Klarna may perform a soft credit check, however, this does not affect your credit score and no minimum credit score is required.
