Klarna Payments T&C's
Klarna Services Terms
These terms apply between Klarna Bank AB (publ) (“Klarna”) and you when you use Klarna’s services and features as described in these terms (the “Services”). You sign up for the Services by accepting these terms.
DESCRIPTION OF THE SERVICES
For Klarna, shopping is not just about finding great stuff and paying for them - it is also about enjoying a great shopping experience at the store of your preference, a state of the art app, and many other things. Simply put, a smoooth user experience both before you have done your purchases and after you have done a purchase. These terms explain in more detail what this means. Please note that additional terms may apply to a specific payment method if you choose to make your payment by using one of the methods offered by Klarna.
1. Autofill and preferences
In order for you to have a smoooth and friction free shopping experience we will remember some information about you and use that information to autofill different forms with your information during your shopping. This will enable you to save time and focus on more important stuff than filling out the same information over and over again. Let us explain in more detail how this works.
Autofill of your contact information
We can help you to fill in your contact information in two ways.
Autofill through input of limited information
While interacting with Klarna we may ask for information about you, such as name, address, telephone number, email, date of birth, or personal identification number. We will keep this information in our systems so that when you return to us or use our payment methods, you will only need to provide some of this information such as email and zip-code, or personal identification number (dependent on the country) in order for us to autofill the remaining fields with your other details.
Autofill through a Klarna cookie
An additional method we can use to autofill your information is by placing a Klarna-cookie on your device (computer, tablet, mobile phone, etc.). You may choose to store your details such as name, address, telephone number, email, date of birth, or personal identification number, and card details with Klarna. If you do so, we use the cookie to fetch those details from Klarna’s storage, and the cookie will help us to autofill them when you shop with Klarna.
If you don’t want to use the Autofill functionalities you can contact us and we will disable them. You can also disable them from the Klarna App or by adjusting your autofill settings during the purchase process. You can at any given time delete all cookies on your device, which deletes our cookie as well.
Autofill of other information
While interacting with Klarna you may also provide us with other information, such as for example card details. You may choose us to keep this information in our systems so that when you return to us we may autofill such information after we have identified you.
When you shop directly from the Klarna App we can also autofill your details on the site where you are shopping. This is enabled by you being logged in to the app and we know it is you that is shopping.
Preselected preferred payment methods
In order to make your shopping experience even smooother Klarna can, based on your previous purchases, pre-select the payment method that we believe to be your preferred way of paying. You may however also have access to other payment methods should you prefer to switch to another method than the one we pre-selected for you.
2. Klarna App
The Klarna App, provided to you by way of an app or a web portal is your hub for all your Klarna purchases and all other great features Klarna offers. By using the Klarna App you can pay your purchases, track your packages and many more things.

Pay later in 3 instalments
The following Terms apply between Klarna Bank AB (publ) (“Klarna”, “we” or “us”) and you who has made a purchase and want a smoooth payment experience. If you choose this payment option you agree to these Terms.
This is a payment option you can choose to part pay your purchases by dividing the cost into 3 equal payments without any interest, fees or charges using a credit or debit card. However, the issuer of your card may charge interest or other fees under the terms of your card agreement.
How do I Pay later in 3 instalments?
Provide your card details in order to complete your purchase. The first payment is taken from your card at the time the merchant confirms your order. The two remaining equal payments will also be taken from your card 30 and 60 days after the first payment is taken. We will tell you the due dates via electronic communication and they are viewable in the Klarna application.
You give us the authority to take the two remaining equal payments from your card on the due dates without any further notice to you. In the event the merchant does not charge for your entire order at the same time, we will create a different Pay later in 3 instalments order for each merchant charge. Each of these order parts will have its own due date depending on when the merchant confirms that part of your order. This situation may be common where a merchant does not ship all the items from your order at the same time.
You will maintain adequate credit balance on your card to allow for payments to be taken on the due dates. It is important you ensure enough funds are available to complete your payment on the due date. If you fail to make a payment you will be in default, and may be unable to use the service in the future. We may continue to attempt to collect overdue and currently due payments on subsequent due dates, or invoice you separately for the unpaid total.
If you are in default Klarna may also charge the outstanding balance on your Pay later in 3 instalments purchase immediately, using any card we have on file for you.
What do I need to know?
You must be 18 years old.
The card is valid and issued to you.
It is at our discretion whether you can pay with this payment option. We may limit the types of cards we accept at our discretion. If a type of card is not accepted you will be notified before the purchase is completed. Most valid credit and debit cards that are not scheduled to expire in the near future are accepted. We do not accept prepaid cards. If we accept a card we will authorize the card for 1/3 of the order total at point of purchase. This amount will not be charged until the merchant confirms the order, but your card issuer may restrict your access to the authorized amount while pending.
We may carry out a limited credit search on you at a credit reference agency. This search will not affect your credit score or your chances of obtaining a credit in future. If we do not carry out a limited credit search we will validate your card and request authorisation from your card issuer. In this case there will be no entry shown on your credit file for these payments.
If we are not able to take the second instalment from your card on the due date we will provide you a courtesy seven-day slack period so that you can update your payment method or ensure enough funds are available on your selected card. If we are not able to take the second instalment during the slack period we will roll over the unpaid amount to the next and final instalment. If we are unable to take the outstanding amount on the third instalment we may invoice you the remaining amount for immediate payment or follow our debt collection procedures where you will have to pay all reasonable costs incurred by Klarna and/or the debt collection agency.
If your card is cancelled you will immediately pay us all the remaining payments when we ask you to. If your card details change between your initial purchase and final payment, you agree to notify Klarna of your updated card information. Klarna will provide you an online method to provide these updates. If you fail to provide updated information, you authorize Klarna to obtain the updated details from your card issuer, if available.
You authorize us to store your card details on our systems. We will use this information to authorize future payments under these Terms. Unless you opt out, we may also use this information to conveniently prefill your card details for future purchases. You may manage your cards and details online. In the event Klarna obtains updated card information from your card issuer, you agree that we may store this updated information on our system.
You can pay any remaining payments at any time and we will not charge you for doing so.
If you cancel your purchase we will cancel any remaining payments and pay back to your card any amounts we have taken. Any part returns or refunds credited to your purchase will reduce your outstanding balance, but do not count as payments. You will need to continue to make your previously disclosed payments at scheduled due dates until your balance is paid in full.
