Mollie x Klarna
After a partnership in various European markets (Germany, Netherlands, Belgium,…), we are proud to be further developing our collaboration with Klarna in the French market.
While online shopping has been democratised in an unprecedented way due to the health situation, consumers are looking for the most secure payment methods. In the age of the coronavirus, multi-payment can provide a useful solution while removing many uncertainties. It makes the payment process more flexible and builds confidence. As a result, consumers return faster: Klarna users buy 20% more often and spend an average of 16% more per order.
It is against this background that Klarna and Mollie have joined forces. Already partners in several European countries, the two European companies are entering into a partnership on the French market to enable e-merchants to offer the most innovative and seamless split payment solution to date, without the need for additional contracts. Thanks to this partnership, every e-merchant can check out from the Mollie dashboard. With Klarna, consumers can pay for their purchases in instalments, without any additional costs, while the online shop is paid directly. Klarna is the market leader in Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands and is used by 90 million people worldwide, increasing the value of orders between 5 and 15%.
“We are delighted to be one of the first to sign with Klarna and take it as a sign of confidence. We are both international players and are looking to stay ahead of the market by offering ever more innovative and simple solutions for both consumers and e-tailers,” explains Benjamin Lang, Country Manager France at Mollie.
Eric Petitfils, Klarna’s Sales Director, said: “Trust is an important factor in the rapidly expanding e-commerce market. Shoppers want the most secure and user-friendly experience possible, while online shops want the least complex process possible. With Klarna via Mollie, the whole payment process is smooth and easy, with one click, and this obviously benefits the conversion rate.”
Now, with Klarna and Mollie, French merchants can offer their customers payment in three instalments, free of charge.
